    I may have a ruined palate, or maybe I am just so
    unsophisticated that I cannot grasp the finest stuff
    in life that money can buy. But I just don't get the
    sudden coffee worshiping with its accompanying army
    of hipsters and high price tags.

    Coffee is coffee. It sucks or it is good, but it wakes you
    up like any other upper drug. Why do I have to distinguish
    between an organic, arabica bean harvested in the
    mountains of Nepal from a damn spoon of soluble
    Nescafe? And, most importantly, why do I have to pay
    7.99 for a stupid cup of black water? And, please, for
    the love of heaven: barista? Really? As a career choice?
    It is damn coffee, not rocket science!

    If places like San Francisco would replace their zillion
    nauseating hipster cafés with homeless shelters, their
    problem would be solved.

    Give me a cup of damn soluble Nescafe any day, for
    0.99 a cup, and let's all be happy.

    Down with the hipsters and caffeine fashionistas!

    Agreed.

    You must have a ruined palate.

    Are you competing with FMF's "coffee" thread?

    Do you mean Thread 166502?

    Not really, FMF is a snob and his thread is taste-centric. This one is more
    all-encompassing as it addresses the whole coffee worshipping cult and
    its cultural significance.

    So, what do you drink?

    I saw this dishevelled guy in the street playing an accordion and singing Breakfast in America.
    I went up to him and said that's Supertramp.
    'Thank you very much he replied, could you give me a a pound to get a cup of coffee?'
    So I gave him a quid then followed him to see where you can get a coffee for a pound.

    I like to place warm butter in certain places where people
    don't usually do so.

    Bullet proof, baby.

    Maybe you should try putting coffee beans in there, too. Might give you that little lift your palate evidently no longer does.
