“But even a bad cup of coffee is better than no coffee at all. New York has great water for coffee”

American director David Lynch said, in a story published in Time magazine on October 1, 1990:

“I like cappuccino, actually. But even a bad cup of coffee is better than no coffee at all. New York has great water for coffee.”

Lynch’s words have frequently been included in collections of coffee quotes.
