    I brought my own Mr. Coffee in and had it at my desk. It was always clean. Our office moved and the bastards said no more coffee machines at desks. I don't drink out of the community pots in the break room, I just pick a giant cup up on the way in to work.

    Only in extreme emergencies. I bring my own to work but if I need a boost, I might partake in the swill they have here.

    At netscape we had a cappuccino machine, a coffee maker and a pop machine that if you presssed the diet coke it gave you a can of miller genuine draft. We used to snag them for the train ride.

    Yeah the office has good stuff not that foodservice Farmer Boys that tastes like motor oil.

    I find myself drinking more coffee just because it's there. The secretaries, bless their hearts, like to bake but am I an asshole for asling them to mix it up and bring pies or brownies instead of peanut butter cookies every week?

    One place I worked had machines that would grind and dispense a cup at a time. We had choices of 4 or 5 different real good coffee. I'm sure they spent a fortune on it.

    yup, those fully autos aint cheap, like $2000-3000 min. Dunno why, it's just a pump and grinder built into a box.

    We used to have a coffee club in my office. Now I use those single brew coffee bags. They're not great but they do the job.

    We have the Kreug machine single cup model. We used to see we lost at least an hour a day collective by people going down on the street for coffee.

    Now they don't leave, and the increase in productivity far outweighs the cost of their coffee fix ...

    As Mr. Burns said " give them their tar-tar sauce "

    Our building has 300 people in it and coffee pot stations scattered around everywhere. I'm going to check the brand of coffee. It's horrible. You really have to douse it with extra cream and sugar to be able to drink it.

    Stay tuned. I will return.
