    I like your style. I only eat the Chicken and Mushroom pot noodles.

    McDonald's and Costa both use the same quality of coffee beans. The main difference is that McDonald's is made by a machine, and Costa use a barista.

    Didn’t know that, but would make sense as McDonalds is rather nice have to say and do like a Costa. Not a fan of Starbucks, but not have to say I’ve not had that many.

    In my opinion, Starbucks do so well, not primarily on the quality of their coffee (which I think it good), but largely due to the drinks they do with all the extras.

    Might be a bias from the States, but coffee in the region I live in feels semi-religious.

    0) Don't drink coffee or drink tea alone -- really?! (I like tea, so this isn't my view)

    1) Corner coffee -- delis, restaurant chains, gas stations, etc.

    2) Brand coffee, to go -- Starbucks, Tim Hortons, Dunkin' Donuts, etc.

    3) Brand coffee, at home -- Folgers, Chock Full O' Nuts, Illy, etc.

    4) Dedicated coffee -- any local roaster, where you're using a french press, Chemex, Aero press, nitro, cold press, or some other delicious nonsense.

    I span the gamut because 'why not?!', but many I know are seriously and fully into one of these camps!

    Mc Donalds and Gregg's use fair trade coffee beans same stuff, been trying to buy a bag but keep forgetting to ask what exact beans they use on the rare occasion I'm in

    I'm drinking this just now decent coffee there house blend beans are quite good too [​IMG]

    Don't really drink the instant coffee anymore since the good lady bought me a Dolce Gusto last year.

    Love a latte everynow and again, was buying the dolce gusto boxes at between £5-6, then discovered Lidl's own make at £2.99 for x8 capsules.

    Dynamite with a wee sweetener chucked in...
