Snake oil

I don't get coffee. It's a fairly banal drink, and the vast array of variations appear to me to be just indifferent versions of the same blandness. I don't know what a 'good' cup of coffee is. I've drunk various supposed exotic long milky versions and short dark types, but don't find them any more agreeable than a spoonful out of jar. There's isn't the variety and depth that exists with beer and wine. I also don't believe I've lost a minute's sleep or had a moment's hyperactivity after too many cups. I dislike McCoffee shop culture, what so special about bloody Starbucks? It's not a lifestyle, it's a leg resting opportunity for shoppers.
