Why coffee on a plane tastes so bad

Just say no.
I don't drink coffee on airplanes. I also try not to drink it at Starbucks or any other place where they make it in vats.

Here's why it tastes so bad on planes.

The water. The water used to brew coffee comes from the same tank as the water you use to wash your hands in the bathroom, and apparently it isn’t the cleanest.

Well, that's just disgusting.

The brewing process. At 35,000 feet, water boils at a much lower temperature, which messes up the extraction process so that only some of the coffee solids get dissolved.

You. It’s not all the coffee’s fault, because your taste buds are also part of the problem, thanks to cabin pressure, dry air and altitude, which weakens your taste perception.
