Even though I appreciate fine coffee like Starbucks, Peets, or the many great independents, I don't consider myself a coffee "snob".  I've had some very nice brews from the most unlikely places.  In Sunnyvale, where I live, I have to praise the very best coffee bar I've ever seen at a 7-11 convenience store.  These guys run a tight ship--they rotate the coffee frequently, you have many choices from decaf to dark roast, and they have a lot of interesting flavorings and sweetener choices.  I like the fact they put the coffee in thermos containers instead of regular pots on hot pads.  This is one of my coffee pet peeves--not matter how short a time a brewed pot of coffee is on a hot plate it starts to "melt down" as I call it.  The coffee gets cooked, concentrated, and has a burnt taste to it.  Not so with the thermos arrangement-- the coffee is hot and fresh.  I love when a business takes pride to produce the best product they can--
