A Coffee Expert Reviews Cheap Coffee Using a 5-Star Rating System

Los Angeles-based coffee expert Wes Johansen sits down and reviews cheap coffee in this video by BuzzFeed. The coffee taste test included 7-Eleven, Denny’s, McDonald’s, Maxwell House, Folgers, Starbucks, and Dunkin’ Donuts. After smelling and tasting each brand, he then scored them on a 5-star rating system. Folgers and Dunkin’ Donuts’ coffee both reigned supreme with 4-star scores.

Can coffee really be this bad?

Legal, A New Line of ‘Wake and Bake’ Cold Coffee Beverages Brewed With Cannabis Extract

Legal Beverages

Legal is a new line of cold coffee beverages brewed by Washington State food and drink company Mirth Provisions that takes advantage of the state’s new marijuana laws by incorporating 20 milligrams of locally-grown cannabis extract into the recipe. In an interview on MyNorthwest, creator Adam Stites refers to the line of flavored coffee drinks as “wake and bake beverages.”

We want the experience to be more similar to that if you had a nice IPA or glass of wine. We don’t want to pack so much THC into every one of our drinks that it’s unpleasant, especially for people that are just getting into marijuana.
