    Interesting coffee comments

    Anyone ever ordered an espresso, only to be warned and given an apologetic look, and told that its a REALLY small cup of coffee?

    That has actually happened to me twice!

    Hahaha

    After I got my espresso (it was really bad cup), I was just telling my wife, and we were wondering what was going through the mind of the person who took my order.

    I reckon they must think I am an idiot, for 20 cents more I would have gotten frothed milk with that.

    My other horror experience was in Malaysia. I ordered an espresso, only to be given an espresso sized cup filled with filtered "espresso" blend coffee. Can you believe that?

    Funny story Thomas. I generally ask for a "short black" when ordering an espresso.....sort of implies a deficiency in quantity, but hopefully not quality :D

    I was once trying to be clever and asked for a Pygmy. Straight through to the keeper!
