These professions drink more coffee than any job


By web gangsta | Published:

A lot of people can’t start their day without a good cup of coffee.

Some employers have even discovered (like they should be surprised) that providing FREE COFFEE to their staff actually increases workers’ productivity and happiness vs those companies where coffee isn’t readily available.

How to make perfect coffee, every time


By web gangsta | Published:

Ah, the quest for the absolutely perfect cup of coffee.  It’s what Starbucks has built their reputation on, as has Keurig, Dunkin Donuts, McDonalds, and any number of locally-owned coffee shops around the country.

Songs have been written, one would think, about the quest.  Certainly, coffee played a major part in the writing of said songs.

Why Your K-Cup Coffee Habit Sucks


By web gangsta | Published:

How much do you love your coffee?

Are you so totally addicted that you have to have a couple of cups of coffee at the drive-thru even before you get to the office, then brew your own “special” pot just because you can?  Do you have your own coffee station in your bedroom or master bathroom, because coffee is The Most Important Thing for your Morning?

Then maybe you’re one of those people who went out and purchased the KEURIG K-CUP COFFEE BREWING STATION, in part for the easy convenience of being able to brew a single cup of coffee without having to brew up an entire pot.

For households that have just one coffee drinker in the family, the Keurig system certainly makes sense.  Less mess, less waste.  How could this be a bad idea?

Hotel guests prefer coffee over sex


By web gangsta | Published:

Even the worst hotels in the country offer two things in every hotel room: a bed, and a coffee pot.

Now, that’s not to say that the bed is going to be the cleanest or most comfortable, and the same can be said for the coffee pot’s cleanliness status.

But at least the coffee is typically available in a single-serve package that (one hopes) hasn’t been tampered with.

The best path to success is to drink beer AND coffee


By web gangsta | Published:

When it comes to beverages, there are COFFEE PEOPLE and NON-COFFEE PEOPLE.

There are also people who LIKE BEER and those who HATE BEER.

Some parents have even gotten into the habit of lying to their children about coffee – telling them that you must be 16 years old before you could legally buy or drink coffee at all, putting coffee squarely into the “adult beverages” world that is usually exclusively assigned to alcohol.

Ah, coffee.

For some, the smell of coffee is the equivalent of a new morning, a fresh day ahead.

Starbucks and other gourmet coffee shops have brainwashed the world into believing a $4 cup of coffee is superior to anything that you can brew at home for pennies a cup (we’ve since learned that’s not true – otherwise, why would those same coffee shops be selling coffee beans to take home for self-brewing?).
