* [=McDonald's=] coffee also has this reputation, especially since they used to burn it by serving at 180 degrees F instead of 140-160 like most restaurants. Before an old lady got third-degree burns and sued.

* This is Ms Smith's reaction in ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' when she tries drinking a cup of the cheap instant coffee served at a police command center. On the other hand, she thinks that Kimihito's coffee is the best brew ever, which confuses the heck out of him because it's the cheap instant stuff.

* Instant Coffee (brewed and then freeze-dried and packed) has a very strong reputation for this, at least in the U.S. Then again, if you find yourself needing instant coffee (i.e.: [[MustHaveCaffeine you need the coffee]], but lack the time or money for a properly brewed cup), then BeggarsCantBeChoosers. The trend pretty much started in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII where time and space constraints meant the troops had to settle for instant "Cup o' Joe". In Europe and Asia, it's a different story. Instant coffee is actually the main type of coffee consumed at home, even in places like France where food and drink is SeriousBusiness. The instant brands sold there do tend to be of higher quality than the kind Americans are used to. On the other hand, instant tends to dominate in markets like the U.K. and Japan, which have historically been tea cultures and simply may not know any better, and which have tea-brewing infrastructure (read: super-fast boiling kettles) that make making instant coffee very easy.

Good coffee can be really good, while bad coffee is Bad to the Last Drop. It might be very cheap, very poorly brewed, or very stale coffee, or it can be ersatz substitutes for coffee that just don't make the grade.

Good coffee can be really good, a connoisseur's delight, while bad coffee is Bad to the Last Drop. It might be very cheap, very poorly brewed, or very stale coffee, or it can be ersatz substitutes for coffee that just don't make the grade.



* In the ''Literature/InDeath'' series set in the 2050-2060s, genuine coffee is an expensive luxury that only the rich can afford, most people making due with an artificially flavored substitute. Considering that the ersatz coffee on tap at Cop Central is notoriously bad even by ''this'' lowered standard, the top-quality real coffee that Eve's multi-billionaire husband Roarke supplies for her is treated as rarer than liquid gold.

* Coffee snobs see Starbucks coffee as this, due to the chain's use of dark-roasted beans. Serious coffee fans prefer lighter roasts, typically medium roast ("full city") or lighter. Darker roasts, sold as "French roast" or "Italian roast", obscure the regional characteristics of the bean. You're really only tasting the roast at this point. Roasters typically use [[PolishTheTurd poor-quality beans that would otherwise be thrown out]] for their dark roasts. Many coffee fans also dislike the overly smokey flavor of dark-roasted beans, which is why many of them nickname Starbucks "Charbucks."
