I just bring my monster jug and have it filled up. Or the thermos if I'm travelling light that morning.

Ya I heard about that. I suspect it's to compete with McDonalds.

Even though their sizes will be about the same McD still makes a better coffee.

Who would ever have figured that? eh?

Randy, can't say about your area, but here McD changed their coffee in the late summer. Much better than our famous Tim Hortons'.

I wouldn't believe it until I tried it. It is better. And Tim makes good coffee.

Might just be a Canadian thing, don't know.

I went to Hawaii about 18 years ago. When I went back a couple of weeks ago, the girls on the beach were pretty much the same size but the cup sizes were definitely bigger.
