Bad coffee is so disappointing. My mother complains about her office coffee all the time. So she has a system. She adds her own instant coffee that she brings from home to it. It works!
I drink the jet fuel work coffee and enjoy it more than some chain shop coffee (see: Dunkin, Starbucks). That said, I need my coffee either black or to not taste like coffee at all, so it doesn't bother me.
I really dont care for Dunkin but I really like Starbucks, just wish it was a bit cheaper.
regular coffee in Starbucks isn't that bad. But what I do is I drink a lot of ice coffee. I used to add espresso shots to it. Now I just get the shots over ice, much much much cheaper!
I'm a huge fan of what I call "function hall coffee." Mass produced. Always a little sweet. Comforting. I drink instant coffee everyday. I used to live with this girl who was a Starbucks barista in another life. She was terrible. The worst. While we were living in Poland she was always on about how she missed "a good cup of coffee". This was weird to me because in all our local coffee shops they brewed up beautiful Italian coffees from big fancy machines and the first time I had one I was in heaven and all she said was "I still miss Starbucks." I was suspicious of her from that day forth.

Yeah as much as I like Starbucks, I'm sure everything in Italy is better.
You have to pay for the coffee in my office. I drink water. It's free.

We have a Keurig at work, and the lady who buys the k-cups is always adventurous, so our coffee is always hit or miss. I try to bring in my own k-cups, so I know it's good coffee.
Over Christmas she bought an egg nog coffee. I kid you not it tasted like vomit aftertaste. It was that sour-burning taste. Grossest thing I've ever tasted IN MY LIFE!
Before I finished reading about the egg nog coffee, I thought "that sounds amazing." I'm sorry it was so terrible!
That is awesome and aside from being hit or miss I think the Keurig is probably the best way to go to avoid being disappointed by work coffee. I had the misfortune of also trying the egg nog coffee cups and agree with you 100%. Took me way too long to get that taste out of my mouth lol
