  • McCrapé OMG!!!

    Yuck yuck yuck!
    Hey all,
    today i had the worst coffee in i cant remember how long. Thats right it was even worse than uni coffee, which is pretty damn hard to beat!!!
    I was at a Maccas kiddy party and was offered a coffee... i went along with it thinking who knows maybe the girls working are trained (like maccas chick ). Boy was i wrong. Talk about over-extracted, burnt, scalding, eww yuck words cannot describe feral rubbish eek!
    I politely pretended to drink the large skim cap all the time trying not to make obvious gag motions (so as not to offend the buyer/host) and as soon as the first person had finished i couldnt get to then bin quick enough.

    Im not saying all branches are like this (Thornleigh NSW) or all the staff who work there. But this was terrible to say the least.

    Anyone else with a horror story feel free to add :P

    Isnt Thornleigh the national headquarters for Maccas?

    I really dont bother going out for coffee anymore. Saves me from being disappointed.

    If I get breakfast at Maccas, its usually black tea.

    Keep searching, you might find something suitable...But you also might be tossing quite a few coffees on the way.

        Why on earth would you want to try anything worse than Maccas "coffee" ???

        Oh well, if you must, I can suggest Donut King at their various kiosks around Sydney and, I suppose, the rest of the country.

        Notably Narellan but I suppose all their outlets would be comparable.

        Their "Cappuccino with a bucket" is the go.

        Gives ya a good scorin laddie !

              Is that as opposed to

              " He squirts, he scours " ?

                WOW...
                No need to be rude!
                If you had read my original post i didnt go out of my way to visit the place. I was there, got offered a coffee and accepted.
                I wasnt expecting the best i had ever drank or anything but i wasnt not expecting what i got either.
                Im not here to be insulted... Keep comments like that to yourself next time please!!!

                  Has anyone drank Krispy Kreme coffee before?  Its actually enjoyable although Im lost with words to describe its taste except that its rather grainy and nutty and very American.

                  Worst coffee I ever had would have to be Pelligrinis in Melb. I threw the whole cup away after a few sips. Totally burnt, absolutely zero aftertaste except for charcoal. The guy doesnt even bother to tamper the grind after he puts it on the group handle. Whacks it straight onto the machine from grinder. The milk for a cappucino was frothed to the consistency of a flat white but what felt like big bubbles scooped on.

                  I could have made a better coffee by over extracting a used group handle for a second time but doing the milk properly.

                  And FYI this has happend numerous times and definitely maker related considering others using Vittoria arent usually so bad.

                    Ive eaten at Pellegrini, an institution in Melbourne. But to my recollection never had a coffee there.

                    I have spoken to tourists from Sydney who say visiting is the highlight of their trip.

                    The owner, Sisto Malispina -- he has the most incredble raspy voice-- claims its the citys first espresso bar.

                        Hi NE14COFFEE

                        Really no insult intended, I was trying to be flippant not rude (or crude).

                        Reading it now it certainly reads rather badly.

                        My apologies to all.
