Anybody f'coffe?

Twice maybe I've paid through the nose for a coffee in one of these those places, but never again after reading that. Mind you, if we inspected only half the kitchens in places we eat we'd be in for a rude awakening.

Anyway's who the heck drinks iced coffee, or iced tea for that matter? 

Anybody f'coffee? No thanks. Wink

It's not a nICE way to treat customers. Would leave a foul taste in my mouth.

When it comes to foodstuffs we all like our "extras" but prefer them not to be the hidden ones.

Most people are funny like that.Smiley

 

And just when you thought it was only foreign ice you had to avoid.

I'd forgotten that episode.

Strangely though it seems a lot more clean and hygienic.

Baldricks coffee and dandruff or Starbucks coffee and do do?

And Baldricks mud coffee wins hands down.

This reminds me of the Carly Simon song  "Your so vain", where she sings "there were clouds in my coffee"

I'm sure its not just these chains that have problems with hygiene,  as the people that wash their hands after the toilet is very low (from both sexes)  as you can see with the number of people that just walk past the communally hand washing areas outside loos.  

In my local coffee shop, they have lots of coffee bean art  (like the ones below) on the walls and they get  dusty, so I presume it's an area for bacteria too?

Well for men at least, it makes some sense to wash your hands before you go to the loo as well. But we don't of course.

It has been said (but check with snopes?) that one study on bar peanuts revealed the presence of 27 different types of urine.
