my old coworkers would only put one little scoop of coffee in the machine to make a whole pot of coffee. when you don't put enough coffee for the amount of water you wind up with weak, bitter coffee
every time i made it i put in the correct amount and they would be like "wow! you make good coffee!"
no i just put in the amount of coffee you're supposed to. you should try it sometime
@Taweret When I worked out of an office, the coffee from a Keurig, so my friend and I bought an espresso machine instead. Because Keurigs are peewater coffee.
@breakfastgolem people will say they don't like 'strong' coffee when what they actually don't like is bitter coffee but what makes it bitter is not putting enough coffee in
@Taweret I assume different people supplied coffee when it was their turn?
I almost wonder if it's "gotta save the coffee I have to buy the next tin"
Of course that's what the massive tins of folgers are for. Coworkers.
@lapis no it was just had the giant jar of folgers. the company paid for it. it was part of the office supplies orders
@Taweret ...I'm now mad at my brother's workplace for cheaping out. I know it's not that much money but it's the principle of the matter
You have inspired me to make coffee. Presumably properly
I hope you leaned into that and didn't ruin the magic.
To this day, they're sipping their crumby coffee and thinking "I wish @Taweret was here. She could really make a good pot of coffee."
