Coffee? Coffee!

The cafeteria at my work just switched over from their own Ritazza coffee to Dunkin' Donuts Coffee. I assume they got a sweetheart marketing deal for this, considering that Dunkin' Donuts does not have a strong presence in SoCal. I have heard many interesting things about Dunkin' Donuts coffee, especially given the coffee wars against Starbucks right now. With all of that, I was eager to try this mystical east coast coffee.

So, do people actually drink this, or do they pour it directly into the radiator? BLEEEEECH! This is nasty. I have a 16 oz decaf, which is what I always get, and I have had to pour so much sugar into my "coffee" to make it drinkable that I might as well have eaten sugar cubes directly.

Mind you, I'm great connoisseur of coffee, but I know good coffee from bad coffee. I don't often get fru-fru drinks, instead sticking with a plain ol' boring cup o' decaf. I understand decaf has some flavor issues over fully leaded and am willing to live with that. There is a Starbucks in our building on the concourse level, and I may consider going there for an overpriced cup of decaf which I also have to dump sugar into, though not as much. Or I can go across the street to Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. Either way, I have to go back upstairs to the cafeteria to get my muffin... *sigh*

...and when will there be a Peet's around here anyway? That's another place I've heard much about but have never tried.

On another related topic, Starbucks is apparently "doing something big. Like Venti Big." on Tuesday, April 8 at 9 am Pacific. Free coffee?
