Okay, that's it.
I can't take this anymore.
Coffee should taste like coffee. If you find that unpleasant, you can always thin it with milk or disguise it with sugar.
Flavored coffee is an abomination on par with the musicals of Rogers and Hammerstein.
Whatever today's flavor is,** it smells just like the stuff we used to use to polish the woodwork when I lived at The Pit. I can't get it past my nose. This occurrence has become more and more common as the AEG and her friends discover more and more "interesting" flavors that they just have to try.
I will no longer drink the "good" coffee at work. I can't do it anymore. I just can't. The free, weak swill that comes out of the vending machine is better than this.
* Sorry to ruin the sense of doom and futility, but I liked the alliteration.
** Addendum: This coffee is apparently called Tamsyn, and I have no idea what it's supposed to taste like (other than "artificial and natural flavors"). I'm not aware of a flavor called tamsyn, and Google returns no helpful matches on the search for "tamsyn coffee."

I know this is late but I just got my internet back.
I am very picky about coffee. I hate flavored coffee because it tastes fake and the artificial stuff in it gives me a headach. Recently I have turned into a coffee snob and will only drink good quality coffee that I grind myself before brewing or from a coffee house. I will drink it with real milk or cream only and refuse to taste it sweetened. I used to drink Folgers all the time but then I tried some quality coffee that I ground at home and now I am spoiled for life. My dad gave me a cup of folgers coffee the other day when I was visiting and I nearly choked it tasted so bad!!!
I found out that if I bring my own cup of any size to the Barnes and Noble coffee shop that they will fill it for only 53 cents. A great deal and very good coffee.
They have really good coffee at a great price at Cost Plus World Market... Anywho

Re: Coffee blather
Sounds like we're kindred spirits, then.
I had to teach myself to drink the weak stuff at work. It's not very good, but it's free and I've gotten worse coffee in restaurants. The important thing (I guess) is that it's free. When I make coffee though, I grind my beans at the store. It's not the same as doing it at home, but it works and it's definitely a step up from Folgers.
As for additives, I put milk in my dad's coffee because it's so strong. Otherwise, I prefer it black.
