Oh no, I can't get it out of my head. "Coffee Fresh, coffee machines.  
Coffee Fresh, coffee machines..."
This is worse than the Carvel jingle. I had that stuck in my head for  
years. "Carvel, ice cream. Carvel, ice cream..." Uh oh. Well, at least  
it's an improvement.
You're evil Tom.

Don't you know you're not supposed to post links to others selling coffee
products!
OK, I bought one because I was entranced by the song.  So sue me.

June of 2003 I was *forced* to attend a meeting in Lillestrom  Norway, a
quick commuter train ride just outside of Oslo.  My hotel was in Oslo.  I
don't remember if coffeefresh was the brand, but everywhere I went, there
were these coffee dispensers.
Slide your cup under the spout and if you wanted coffee, push a button.  If
you wanted espresso, push a button.  If you wanted a moka, push a button.
If you wanted hot chocolate, push a button.  Fortunately, there wasn't a
button on the machine for chicken soup.
The coffee that most resembled what I'm used to while I was in Norway was
the coffee I got in the airport, from of all things, a TGI-Fridays
restaurant.  They had a Technivorm (sp?) and I'm pretty certain used a bean
blend that was different than what was used in the coffee dispensers.
Cheers,

Given your posting regarding that jingle:  I strongly urge you to seek help 
from a mental health professional (or a good bartender) immediately.

What in world ever got you to go to that site in the first place?!
Are you considering becoming a distributor?!  ;-)
I love the line on the home page:
   "A tasty, freshly made coffee helps make relations easier, at work 
    as well as at home."
I'm at a loss for words . . .

Ya got me, made me look. Quite the jingle. Then clicked on the Coffee Fresh
4000 model and found:
"Type: Instant.
Serves: Coffee, Espresso, ...Wiener mélange, ..."
Wiener mélange??? Uh, with or without mustard!

Coffee Fresh 4000? Isn't that the dreaded interrogation machine that 
Sadam is hooked up
to so he'll confess?  Plenty of caffeine to prolong the sleep 
deprivation and then the endless
playing of the corporate ditty to trigger his karaoke impulses to start 
singing like a canary
and then to break down any remaining resistance the horrid Weiner Melange.

I'm just making up for the time I failed to send the list a link to 
Star Trek Coffee featuring the "Borg Raspberry Assimilation Blend" 
and "Tribble's Choice". Now I can't find the web site ....sob...

Just got the Dolby 5.1 working on my new pc. I would suggest the sewer 
pipe, drugged, or psychotic environmental settings really had a lot to 
the jingle.

No "Borg Raspberry Assimilation Blend" or "Tribble's Choice" - more's the
pity - but here at least you will find "In the Hands of the Prophets Blend,"
"Federation Supremo" and (of course) "Vulcan Decaf":http://www.starbase1.com/scripts/search.php4?type=Gourmet%20Coffee&PHPSESSID=ca3cf12912e79b90c817fab99aaa1b21Roast long and prosper.

Speaking of galaxy...Galaxy Quest may just be my all-time favorite movie.
Those who have not seen it are missing some serious fun.
On second thought...if your tastes run to European movies in black & white
involving a lot of discussion about the futility of existence, Galaxy Quest
might not be your cup of tea...(or coffee).
