* In the ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' season 1 episode "Babel", Sisko orders a coffee from the replicator in Ops, and his immediate reaction to its taste is to call Chief O'Brien over to fix the replicator. Unfortunately, when he does fix it, O'Brien inadvertently causes a Bajoran booby trap (intended for the original Cardassian occupants of the station, but long abandoned and forgotten) to activate, unleashing an aphasia virus upon the station. Once the device is removed and the virus cured, though, the replicator goes back to dispensing bad coffee. (It gets fixed eventually.)

* In ''Anime/ZoidsChaoticCentury'', Fiona's TrademarkFavoriteFood is salt. She puts it on or in everything she makes, including the coffee. Van normally likes drinking coffee, but can't drink anything she brews up because she uses salt instead of sugar.

[[RealityIsUnrealistic This is not necessarily a bad thing in itself]], but we're not talking about adding a pinch of salt to the water before boiling like some coffee connoiseurs do.

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': According to Foggy, Karen's coffee-brewing skills leave much to be desired:
-->'''Foggy Nelson:''' If we're gonna be Nancy Drewing together, I think a certainly level of honesty is required.
-->'''Karen Page:''' What, you don't like my coffee?
-->'''Foggy Nelson:''' No. I hate it. ''[Karen can't help but stifle a laugh]'' I appreciate the effort, but the technique or lack thereof-
-->'''Karen Page:''' My god, you are such a dick!
-->'''Foggy Nelson:''' On occasion, some dickery might leak out. That doesn't mean I'm wrong.
-->'''Karen Page:''' Oooh. It means something.

* ''[[Literature/HonorHarrington Cauldron of Ghosts]]'': At one point, two minor characters have a conversation about the coffee served on Havenite ships. One of them insists said coffee falls under this trope:
--> For years, I had a secret belief that the reason we had such a hard time fighting the Manticorans was because of the Navy's coffee. The deterioration that crap must have produced in the brains of our officers and ratings didn't bear thinking about.

* In ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'', the "Blackish Foam" [[http://www.bogleech.com/awfulhospital/651.html served]] by Joe [[spoiler:([[ReforgedIntoAMinion formerly known as Jay]])]] counts as coffee insofar as it's served at a cafe, and turns out to be exceptionally poisonous when applied to an open wound.

** Some people swear by building up a patina of baked-on coffee oil on coffee brewers, in much the same way that one seasons a cast-iron frying pan.

The trope name is an allusion to the Maxwell House slogan "Good to the Last Drop".[[note]]Ironically founded by Robert Maxwell, a man notoriously corrupt and bad to ''his'' last drop - off the side of his boat into the ocean just before his business empire collapsed[[/note]]
