** In Scotland, there are numerous small ferry terminals in coastal areas that take people out to islands. These essentially consist of a ticket booth, a waiting room and (if you're lucky) a vending machine that offers coffee, tea and soup, all of which are thin, boiling and flavourless.

* Another factor that contributes to this trope is the freshness of the roast. Green (unroasted) coffee beans can be stored for years with no ill effect, but once they're roasted (giving them that familiar brown color), you've got about two weeks to brew them before they're considered stale. You see that "Roasted On" date clearly marked on that bag of coffee at the grocery store? [[SarcasmMode That's right, you don't]], because they don't want you knowing how long it's been sitting on the shelf or else no one would ever buy a bag more than two weeks old. The section in the grocery store with the whole beans is sold in bulk bins is a crap shoot for the same reason. If you want truly fresh coffee, you've got to find a reputable local roaster or else do your own roasting at home.

* Serious coffee fans prefer burr grinders over blade grinders because the latter often leaves inconsistent particle sizes, leading to the problems with over-and-under-extraction described above. The whirling blade can even burn the ground beans. Burr grinders grind the beans evenly, which is essential for getting a good extraction.

They're the only kind of grinder found in commercial environments, either in coffee shops or supermarket bulk bean sections.

* Another Creator/WarrenEllis-penned example, from his run in ''ComicBook/{{Excalibur}}'': there were a few lines indicating that Moira [=MacTaggert=]'s coffee was just awful (issue #88, in special, was a bit of a ragfest).
