** And none of these hold a candle to the awful that is truck stop or gas station coffee. Name a mistake made in the brewing process; cheap ''robusta'' beans of dubious quality, too hot of water, too fine or coarse a grind, machines that are never cleaned well, the pot standing too long on the hot plate, etc.

* One ''Film/TheThreeStooges'' sketch has the Stooges attempting to open a diner by building it themselves. One of their first customers complains about his coffee, so Moe drinks from the mug to see what's wrong. He grimaces, then says, "That's not coffee, that's paint!" He grabs another coffee mug, drinks from it, and makes an even worse face: "The paint was better." He takes another drink from the mug of paint as the scene ends.

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.

* There are two main strains of the coffee plant: ''arabica'' and ''robusta''. ''Arabica'' is far more flavorful and slightly lower in caffeine content, whereas ''robusta'' is nearly flavorless and relatively high in caffeine. The latter is also, true to its name, more robust and able to be grown more easily and in more environments than ''arabica'', which prefers high elevations and shade. Thus, ''robusta'' coffee is much cheaper to grow, and is the main ingredient in very cheap coffee blends and instant coffee, mixed with a small amount of ''arabica'' coffee for flavor. 100% ''arabica'' coffee-- the kind you get at any self-respecting coffee house, and these days even on most grocery store shelves and fast food places-- is much tastier than a ''robusta'' blend for this reason. And now you know.

* ''Harper'' begins by showing the low-rent life of Paul Newman's title detective character as he wakes up. He sees he's out of coffee, so he uses yesterday's grounds in a filter pulled from the trash. He doesn't like the result.
