Haw. And might I add, Haw!

via Battlepanda:
They may be unlikely competitors, but McDonald's is giving Starbucks a run for its money when it comes to coffee.

According to a report published in Consumer Reports magazine, McDonald's serves up a better cup of joe than the mega coffee chain.

Testers compared a medium cup of black coffee from McDonald's, Burger King, Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks. They found the best cup of java under the golden arches.

The magazine said McDonald's coffee was "decent and moderately strong" while the coffee from Starbucks "was strong, but burnt."
Take that, former employer of mine!

It was a bizarre experience, working there. I'm not partial to coffee in general, and I loathe Starbucks in particular, but I worked there for over a year. Huh.

I disagree about McDonalds coffee (death!) but Starbucks coffee sucks. Second Cup is only marginally better.

Both burn the hell of their beans making for pretty bad coffee.

If anyone has been to South America (oh Columbia) the coffee there is so nice you can drink it without sugar/cream even if you always put in lots up here in North America.

That said just switch to Americano's or long espresso's—it's like coffee but without the burnt taste.
