At my work, we have one of those fancy-ass Swiss machines that probably costs more than I get paid each year and grinds the beans for each cup individually. While it makes pretty good coffee (the beans are the Starbucks commercial), I still think the coffee I make at home is better. Don't know why. Pride of workmanship perhaps?

Great coffee. Berry Coffee (local, I think), and I can make a fresh pot all for myself whenever I want and it's awesome.

sucks, but it's free. I normally only drink the one cup I bring with me from home and drink water after that

We have the one from Costco, the Costco brand. You are suppose to donate 25 cents each time you fill your cup.

There is a Flavia machine in the coffee room for the "higher ups" of our company. All the other coffee stations in the building have the standard Community Coffee, which is kind of a given since we are in south Louisiana.

I get free coffee everyday, we brew it in my office. It's nothing special, and I like my coffee black. It does the job.

Free Starbucks ground coffee. Since Starbucks generally tastes like shit, I bring my own beans to use in a smaller coffee pot.

We also get several kinds of tea and hot chocolate free.

Not my favorite coffee in the world, but pretty good for free.
I was at a party tonight where the host had Dunkin' Donuts Coffee, pre-ground package from the grocery store.

Pretty good stuff, I'll keep my eye out for it at the store and if the price is reasonable I'll pick it up next time I buy coffee.

We have the "Signature Collection" coffee. I'm not sure who's signature is on it but it ain't worth a shit. However it has gotten better since we started ordering the "Columbian" coffee as opposed to the regular; but hey it is free!

We got one of those fancy Flavia machines with 5-6 types of coffee, 4 types of tea and a hot chocolate option. No cost and always fresh, I like my job.

That, along with the Austin Powers statue that said " Lateralus was looking at my man meat in the gym."

First impressions of a new workplace never die....good times.
