I like coffee but am essentially a coffee wuss. I get the Blonde Coffee at Starbucks to put it in some perspective.
French press coffee usually reminds me of waste water. If the coffee is strong enough to take the enamel off of your teeth or so dark that cream and sugar can not touch it , then I usually order hot tea.
Most restaurants are much more likely to offer you a refill on coffee than they are to remember that you had asked for more hot water so you can make a second cup of tea.
If they are reluctant to provide additional hot water, why do they bring you a single, undersized tiny pitcher of hot water that will not fill your mug.
The coffee and tea cost the same price
To receive the same cupful would also be nice.
