After the old forum software breaking in a way that we were unable to fix, we've migrated the site to a new platform.
Some elements aren't working as we'd hoped - some avatars didn't survive the transition, and we're still having issues with attachments that weren't added as inline images, but we're hoping to have that all sorted out soon.
Who has had a Maccas coffee of late?
Oh dear, while hubby, junior no. 2 and I were out and about last night I decided to grab a Maccas coffee.
I think it was the worst coffee I have ever had, it was like charcoal. Never again, even worse than the On The Run servo coffee a few months back.
Considering all the advertising they have done about their coffee, baristas blah, blah, blah I thought it might be ok. Wrong!
I kind of feel bad for the poor kid that has to churn them out and then be on the receiving end of the backlash :-[
I average about one Maccas coffee per year I don't know why I guess I'm just a sucker for punishment or perhaps I just really need the caffeine ! Anyway the flavour profile never seems to change with charred toast and cigarette ash being the predominant flavours / aromas in so far as I can tell! It's like those old school Italian roasts on supermarket shelves that always taste the same and I can only assume that they are made this way to punch through the milk for large takeaway coffees and / or so that the flavour does not deteriorate any further (than what it already has)
Some Maccas coffee is not bad, it all depends on the passion/skill of the barista. It is pot luck, just like the hit and miss coffee in qantas lounges. Airport coffee can be horrid.
If desperate a maccas coffee with sugar has saved the day, but only under duress.
When driving around Europe a few years ago, I did come across some nice coffee from Maccas from time to time. A lot better than some of the small town cafes we came across.
Would still have to be better than the 7 Eleven coffee on offer.
Never tried 7/11 coffee no doubt Europe has a different roast for their coffee ?
Yep, I to average about one desperate measure a year and can reliably attest to it being drek! At least they don’t charge much for their dreadfulness.
Had one about 6 months ago it tastes like an ashtray crossed with a camp fire but in a good way
