I went and got my ice cream in the end and I'm very glad I did.
Oh you're being an ice cream piggy now, hmm?

There is a place about 5 blocks from my apartment, called Cafe Verde. They grind their own beans, fresh for each cup of coffee, and make each cup individually. Now THAT is good coffee. Get quite a nice buzz from it too. Same price as Starbucks but at least worth the price. Free wifi too, so it's all good.

Quite frankly if you were unable to get a good cup of coffee in South America I'd be surprised.

I'm more of a tea man myself these days, haven't been much of a coffee drinker at all since my early 20s.

Coffee is good here, but it is amazing to see how many people here actually drink the crappy flavored water that Starbucks passes off as coffee. Shocking.

I don't mean to be pedantic but isn't even a good cup of coffee still just flavoured water . . .

Yes, but at Starbucks all I can really taste is the hot water.

I wouldn't mind if it tasted like hot water actually, instead of the horrid, bitter pish I was subjected to the one time I had coffee from Starbucks!

Oh an ice cream challenge, eh? Wonder who could beat you on that?

Yeah, you did mean to be pedantic, or you wouldn't have made the comment. It was a good one though.

I couldn't tell you what that coffee snobs like because I still think that a cup of Nescafe instant coffee tastes just as good as any other good cup of coffee I've had.

As I said, I'm much more of a tea man than coffee

The two of you should form a branch of pedants anonymous.

I was envisaging you two as the only members. You could pedanticise each other to death.
