    The coffee was stale again. What did it take to get people to make decent coffee?

    Good raw materials and modicum of training on suitable coffee making equipment, and as another poster alluded to, they would have to care whether or not you enjoyed your coffee.

    Detective Inspector Lance Spector was sitting at his usual spot at the local Java Hut enjoying his fourth mug of what they kindly referred to as coffee when someone tapped him on the shoulder. It was John "the Snitch" Carbunkle and he looked very excited about something.

    "Thanks Carbunkle, I think I can deal with him. But I hear there's a new guy in town who could be a lot of trouble - has already created a lot of disturbance in some areas. What do you know about him ...?

    You mean that guy from down by the docks? Don't know too much really, think his name, well his street name, is Navy cause he's got big anchors tattoed on both his arms.

    "Try to get as much news as possible, I wanna know what he's up to - before things start happening, not after... is that clear? And report back as soon as you have anything."
