    I work with these 2 Quebec'ers who constantly diss me because I drink 'regular' coffee. I honestly can't stomach Starbucks coffee, or any of that euro tasting trash. Regular folgers or maxwell house is my choice. All these euro-wanna be's paying $2.50/coffee just to try to feel like they're better.
    Just my humble opinion,of course.:wink1:

    I drink 1 or 2 starbucks coffees a week with 4 shots of caffeine just to keep me up in those early overtime hours at work... usually Friday and Saturday...
    So it's not like I'm trying to be one of those high class yuppies, I just like the flavor I chose. 4 shots of caffeine is pretty strong, puts me on full alert all morning with only 3 or 4 hours sleep....I don't know any other market brand coffee that can match that....

    With all due respect, I never liked the 'Nekkid' option.

    Seriously:
    • If you have a poll, people use the Nekkid option for crap and it sways the results, so what's the point of the poll.
    • It's not spelled properly
    • This is supposed to be a serious poll.

    So, call me a rebel if you so choose, but you won't find it on any poll I produce.
    If you choose not to vote, like diesel4me, then that is your prerogative.


    I take offense to my polls being "Random". To what ends must I go before this classification is lifted? Is not every poll considered random?!

    Regular - Community Coffee. Maxwell House and Folgers suck in comparison.

    I'd say that falls under regular. Not nasty enough to classify as starbucks or the euro stuff. They jare ust a little more full bodied and are extrememly consistent in their brewing process and how long the coffee sits.

    Timmy's coffee does not taste like "regular" coffee, and if you crossed the border and started telling people up here "Geez, this tastes just like Folgers!!!!", you would be immediately arrested and executed within 30 minutes.......

    Just so you know. :deal: :rotfl:

    There's Tim Hortons all over Michigan here, tastes the same as when I go to Ontario. It's definatly different than Folgers, but doesn't have that 'euro' taste.
    I'll drink Tim's coffee....no problem.
