I don't like their coffee but when I think about how hard it must be to make that much coffee taste the same everywhere I have to admire them.

I like McDonalds coffee better than Starbucks. It's blend of south American arabica's and they don't burn the living shit out of it. It isn't great but it isn't all that bad in a pinch. It's better than the coffee at the fancy hotel I stayed at this weekend for sure.

It's pretty difficult to ensure consistency in a product that is being supplied by numerous farms across the world, roast and ground on numerous machines with potentially different manufacturers and certainly different serials across the United States in house and/or by co-manufacturers, and then drank by millions of people worldwide. Oh also having to take into aged inventory/product shelf life, blah blah blah. The industrial coffee supply chain is an amazing thing. I always want to contribute more than I do to these discussions.
