Ugh, they bought 2 huge buckets of Folgers Classic Roast.
Tastes like burnt.

Luckily I drink coffee maybe once a month.

It's one of the reasons I only drink coffee at home, or bring it in on rare occasion.

I also like certain flavored coffee creamers, I can't use plain milk and sugar.

if its that bad (yes folgers red can coffee is pretty awful) you might be buying coffee for the whole office

You could always swing in and make a pot on your own from a secret stash, but I remember several times just making a new pot, you get there and the whole things been ganked.

If you're in a union you can organize a strike.

Otherwise you quit.

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL, I am going to tell my boss this later.
I'm going to form a union.

I honestly just took some today because I wanted to taste Folgers. Holy damn it's nasty.

I bring my own in. Some of the team rooms here have their own coffee maker (mine doesn't) or you can buy Starbucks at the cafe. I only do that when I really need a change up.

If you want good coffee in the US you should make your own. It's really the only option.

If you have a stove at the office you can bring a small espresso maker and just brew your own at work.

I'd be terrified I'd drop it and stain my cloth car seats. Starbucks is expensive, although I love their coffee.

I might drink less than a gallon of coffee a year anyway. :p

Luckily my workplace has great coffee always freely available, but if it didn't I would just go buy some or bring it in from home.

I don't. Our coffee machines grind and brew single Starbucks cups, and its pretty good. Like this:

Back when I worked at an office that didn't have free coffee (and what they sold wasn't great either), I just brewed my own at home and brought it in.

Bring my own in a thermos.

Bingo. We have a cafe downstairs that sells refills for $1, so I get that if I don't have time to bring coffee. There's a $3/month coffee club that has horrendous coffee that I refuse to join.

We've had this technology since at least the 50s so why does Starbucks exist?

Brew at home and bring it in a contigo thermos. They...never...leak. I can literally throw mine in the trunk and take it out when I get to campus and itll be fine.
