I think I finally did it. I think I've found the worlds worst cup of coffee. Well maybe not the worlds worst but certainly the worst I've tasted in a long time. And I have tasted some pretty bad coffee. From truck stop greasy-spoons to airport pilot lounges, from business offices to backwoods campgrounds, I've suffered some big insults to my taste buds but this was right up there with the best..er...worst.

Driving home from a long series of lectures lasting well into the night, I stopped in at a convenience store / gas station for a warm cup of brew. For the "great economy price " of only $ 1.29 I was able to assault my senses with a massive 24 oz cup of repulsive tasting elixir. It was late, and I faced a long drive home.

In defence of my observational skills, it was a busy store, with several pots of what looked to be fresh tasty java. And the cup I poured looked and smelled absolutely wonderful.

WRONG !!!!!

My big mistake was not tasting it before I got back on the freeway. I'll not make that mistake again.

Just a few days ago I read the results of a poll that listed the best coffee in America. Believe me the cup I bought Monday night was "Cafe` Intense"... Intensely BAD.

Lesson for the week.

ALWAYS TASTE THE BREW BEFORE YOU PAY.
