Iced Coffee

Our coffee at work is made with a Flavia machine. It makes individual cups of coffee. There's quite a large variety of flavours, including espresso, moccachino and cappuccino. The various flavours are neatly displayed in a drawer system.

Unfortunately, like anything mechanical, it tends to break down a lot. Most recently, the coffee maker on our floor has consistently displayed this message:

Waddaya mean "cools down"?

I'm guessing this is a result of Liebeck v. McDonalds.
No one is ever going to be able to drink hot coffee again.
Nice goin' guys.

I like my coffee hot.
In fact, the hotter the better.

Look ... I promise not to sue if I spill it on my lap.
I mean, really ...
If I put a cup of coffee between my legs and drive off,
I should expect to spill it and burn myself.

You play with coffee, you're gonna get burned.

Whatever happened to taking responsibility for one's own stupidity actions?

I'm drinking not hot enough Starbucks right now. I like to feel the burn when I drink coffee.

Cat: I have a serious Starbucks addiction. I agree ... you should scald your tongue on the first sip.

My husband gets his cup of coffee out of the coffeemaker and then puts it in the microwave to make it hotter.

I had minor surgery on my lip and I've been drinking my coffee through a straw. I still like it hot but my straws are melting...

I just can't drink it warm....Ewwww!

I'm visiting your blog through Little Miss Sunshine's. I'm not drinking coffee right now, but this still made me laugh. I did have a Margarita at lunch so everything is even more entertaining right now, but I love the picture with the frustrating when you need your coffee!
