Norm Walsh discovers the crapness of English hotel coffee
. I felt compelled to write.
On behalf of the nation let me apologise for the coffee. Most of the coffee served and drunk in this country is absolutely rotton, and there's really no excuse. No doubt some of your more churlish correspondants will bang on about Americans' inability to make tea, but if the truth be told most of the tea here is rotton too. Sorry.
If your little sojourn brings you through Birmingham, feel free to drop in and I'll try and serve something a little more palatable.
I know its presumptive of me to apologise on behalf of the entire nation, but I just assumed we all would be ashamed once we get over our collective love of Nescafe.
smellygit said Good point. Perhaps we should ask Norm to apologise too? [added 8th Oct 2003]
I've got to say the coffee in American hotels might be filter but its still rubbish. And on top of that you're in America ;) [added 7th Oct 2003]
OK, I'm going to step on my soapbox. American coffee? What does that mean? US coffee shop coffee or Colombian tinto? You know, nothing pisses Latin Americans off more than being lumped in with the USA! We're Americans too, they rightly point out. And once you have sipped Colombian coffee in Bogota at 10,000 feet elevation, nothing else in the world will do. OK, I'll step down now. [added 13th Oct 2003]
