I visited a cafe one day with my friends. The waiter recommended that we try the specialty coffee they advertised.

We agreed and soon the coffee arrived. As we drank the brew, we realized that it tasted terrible, just like dirt or mud.

 

Disgusted by the fact, all of us complained immediately.

 

The alarmed waiter rushed over and said, "Well, gentlemen, it was advertised as freshly ‘ground’ coffee!"
