Good coffee....caffeine to a smaller extent because of the coffee addiction. "Good Coffee" (Arabica beans) though has much less caffeine than "crap coffee" (Robusta beans).

We probably all have a cycling addiction at least to some extent or we would not have ended up here in the first place.

I've gotten so fanatical on it, I won't drink crap coffee anymore. Our work coffee wasn't horrible (the coffee itself that is), but I got sick of it being inconsistent because of people who ruin the pot by being impatient and sticking cup under while its brewing and stuff like that. It might be good one cup and crap the next.

I finally started making my own. I keep a cheap burr grinder at work now, bring in my own beans, grind it fresh each day and make it in my own steeping cup.

Sounds like a friend of mine. Before we trek out in the cold on a long Saturday ride, he grinds his own beans and brews the most, wonderfully rich cup one could ask for.

I didn't mean to insinuate it was always in that order. I meant it was random whether it was any good or not.
