WOMP – Jan 18, 2010

Statoil coffee.

One of the interesting things here: the gas station, Statoil, offers these little mugs for sale. You can then get unlimited coffee, tea, and hot chocolate from any station. Pretty good marketing, in my opinion. Free is good, and if a little 150NOK mug can influence customers to come to your stations instead of the competition, even better. The mugs themselves have a recognizable shape, and bear a little Statoil stamp, turning every mug owner into free advertising. Way to go, Statoil.

As for the taste? I heard that the hot chocolate was bra (good), but unfortunately that function was broken. I chose espresso choco, which was neither espresso, or choco. More like an americano (though the hot chocolate wasn’t working, so maybe the choco part wasn’t, either).

Strong coffee aroma hides an acidic brew with undertones of burnt chest-hair. Blessedly caffeinated, it’s only perk. 1/5 stars.

[UPDATED]  The Espresso Choco function at the Statoil machine is now my go-to for caffeine whilst in class.  The addition of hot chocolate makes all the difference.  Like creamy mud, with chocolate undertones, now.  2.5/5
