Personally, I think he went a little over the top there. Folgers isn't THAT bad.
I grew up on Farm Coffee, boiled in a stovetop percolator until it achieved the consistency of blackstrap molasses. It was taken black, and was concentrated enough to keep you awake through both senior English AND economics. Just the memory of it makes me a little jittery.
I don't drink much coffee anymore. What coffee I do drink usually comes from Tim Horton's, which I find to be a nice, smooth blend processed in the customary fashion, which is good. Tim Horton was a hockey player and I don't think I could drink something that was made by a bunch of big guys in Canada eating coffee cherries and processing them civet-style.
Which brings up another interesting fact: Kopi Luwak is not, in fact, the grossest coffee out there.
There's Elephant Poop Coffee, which is processed along the same lines, and sells for more than a thousand bucks a pound. And there's Jacu Bird Coffee. Same thing, bird version.
And then there's the coffee made by Bill, a guy I work with, which is just nasty. It makes Farm Coffee look like weak tea. I'm not kidding. I use it to patch tires on farm wagons. Bill Coffee will put hair on your chest and scorch it off at the same time.
And come to think of it, I think he uses Folgers.
