I’ve been forced to admit it even to myself: I’ve gone back to drinking coffee. In honor of this event, here’s a series of reports about the coffee I’ve drinking around the neighborhood.
First up, $1.38 Target lobby coffee.
Pros: Decent basic lobby coffee served from insulated carafe. Reasonably fresh. Not burnt. Ice conveniently located at nearby soda machine. Large cup only $1.38 including tax, free refills as long as you hang around the snack bar at Target.
Cons: Basic lobby coffee usually offered free in hotel lobbies, waiting rooms of business establishments and so on. Paying for it always seems slightly wrong. Ambiance in snack bar at Target: dull to horrible.
Verdict: Not worth an extra trip, but well worth drinking if you happen to be at Target anyway. Price is right. Drink up and collect at least a partial refill, minimizing time in snack bar, then drink the rest of the cup at your leisure while you shop.
