[quote=Hey Kool-Aid] Anyone ever try the coffee @ Wawa…cheap and good![/quote]

I thought you only drank Kool-Aid.

  Here I am trying to participate in a non-market based conversation...dropping the biases (sp?) for a moment...and along comes Moraen who just can't let it pass!  So that's how you roll hey dude?!?   I actually just like the name...Although I do like the firm where I work, I don't drink the Kool-Aid as much as one might think.  When I signed up for this board, and saw the references to Kool Aid, I immediately thought of the big pitcher breaking through the wall and all the kids yelling "hey Kool-Aid"...and thought it would be a good name!

  You a Jersey Girl?   I lived ther for a brief period, and Wawa was awesome.  Don't remember the coffee, but those stores kicked arse.

What’s a Wawa?  Is it a convenience store/gas station place?  I sort of remember stopping at something like that when I was in VA a few years ago. 

  In the midwest we have QTs.  My dad says the coffee is really good.  But he's old, half his taste buds are dead, and he spent too many years in the Army to know what good coffee tastes like.    Back to my question earlier about the coffee in Italy - is there anywhere here in the states that makes their coffee the way they do in Italy?  I can't imagine a chain like SBUX would have the time to do it that way.

  Now you're talkin!  You must be on the I-95 corridor somewhere between PA and VA.  Can't say there's a better place to go if you're looking for a quick bite and drink.  I'll actually take the Wawa Orange drink and a steak and cheese Shorty any time of the day.

Army coffee literally tastes like diesel fuel mixed with turpentine.



Spiff. Here you go.

The Italian Roast is likely what will remind you most of Italy. But I urge you to try the Colombian.

Spiff...Wawa food market is a great, clean convenient store, up and down the East Coast.  My store of choice was in South Jersey (not there anymore).  My wife had a friend send us a bag of it and we brewed it up ourselves...just not the same though!  They also have those flavored creamers which personally I don't care for, but my wife loves them.  After shopping for years at Wawa, 7-11 just doesn't cut it!

Sounds a lot like our QT’s.  Very clean, no matter when or where you go.  Very consistent.  I pass one on the way to work every morning and my truck just automatically turns into the store to get my 32oz Coke.  I’ve tried to stop, but the truck just has a mind of it’s own.

Cool thread.... One, because I drink coffee by the pail, and two, I think it could coffee preference could be figured out regionally. 

The Dunk'n Donut crowd (me included) are probably from north of the Mason-Dixon.  You can't swing a dead cat in Boston without hitting one.  South of that line, and you're probably for a little something else.
East coast Wawa, mid-West 7-11, down here (dirty south now) a Circle K or Tom Thumb for the quick, cheap, keep me awake please, cup of coffee.  I can't answer for the west part of the country

I had a little bit of Cracker Barrel coffee this morning at a breakfast meeting. I have to say I prefer the Dunkin coffee…
