I second the "cooked coffee" syndrome. After the gang at the office  
started abusing the coffee maker (with Folgers among other things) I  
started toting a thermos full of coffee to work. The only problem was  
that it tainted the flavor after a few hours. The best solution I've  
found is a French Press mug; I'm not at the mercy of the leave-the- 
coffe-maker-on-all-day, Folgers drinkers & I can brew just enough,  
just the way I like it.
