Good, cheap, honest coffee

I miss paying $0.60 for a small coffee from the cart on the north-west corner of 33rd Street and 7th Ave.

Here in London, it’s nigh-on impossible to get a coffee for under £2.00, as they insist on putting a freshly-made espresso shot in every cup, the customer (me) paying for the privilege. The fact that the carts in New York serve so much coffee means that the filter coffee that they produce can be nothing other than fresh.

The wide abundance of good, cheap, convenient coffee in New York is something that I miss hugely.

    Don’t know where you are going, but the going rate for an double espresso in London is 1.50.

    The americans don’t know how to make espresso, similarly many in UK don’t either.

    Who the fuck drinks filter other than your nan, it died out years ago!

    “The americans don’t know how to make espresso…”

    Perhaps, but at least we know how to use capital letters appropriately.

    Get a grip and pop down the pub for your workday refreshment!

    Coffee is the devil’s urine!

    The coffee’s fresh but the filter itself has been re-used 100 times.

    Any unused coffee is set aside to boil hot-dogs for the lunchtime crowd.
