Welcome to Hell. Here's your coffee cup.

MUG: Styrofoam cup made by Dart. Styrofoam cups are the object of much 'Green Hate' for being environmentally unsustainable. But on the bottom of the cup I found the recycling code 6. Yes, evil styrofoam can be recycled. What can you make out of recycled styrofoam? Answer: Insulation, light switch plates, egg cartons, vents, rulers, foam packing, carry-out containers. Truthfully, these cups keep the coffee warm, and keep the hands from getting too hot... and you can make light switches out of them when you're through.

COFFEE: White Bear mystery Arabica coffee. Drip-brewed (Bunn-like brewer) into a thermal air-pot. Certainly not the worst coffee I've ever had. The reverse is true as well, but it is far better than the usal "gratis coffee" you find offered for consumer consumption. It does smell good when brewing (I should have stopped there, or had a cup of the fresh-brewed). From the roaster: "Darker Roast, premium quality blend, ideal for resturants, hotels and general taste (City Roast)." I'm not sure if "resturant" is a different way to spell "tire store" or not.

NOTES: I'm back at Discount Tire for a slow leak repair. The sugar canister by the air-pot is from a brand called Dixie Crystals... which I would have suspected to be a methamphetamine alias, but is actually a sub-brand of Imperial Sugar.
