Have done some experimental roasting, and currently get single origin beans from an enthusiastic professional roaster. But can also be satisfied with cans from vending machines. Edit: can't drink UCC cans though, that stuff is nasty.
I've experienced too many substandard coffees from dedicated coffee places to look down at the idea of McDonald's. I can remember the three worst coffees I've had in the past year- Pacific Coffee, a stall in Fortress Hill that was just big enough for a fancy machine, and Coffee Academics. The last was definitely the worst.

I also regret that there is no Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in Hong Kong. It had been my go to choice in Singapore - good consistent coffee and many branches.
This was mid-morning so they're just have been at least a modest stream of customers who'd had their drinks and not said anything.
This was at one of the bigger branches that I've even heard people compliment. They've been fine other times, but it was surprising that it was that messed up for an entire morning.
I'm originally from a coffee snob city. This would never have happened back home- baristas would have not let it slip, and if they had, the first customer would have said something.
However one wants?
P.S. Oh, how many times I complained on cappuccino at 7-eleven poor girls had to re-do it several times. But I just can't drink empty milk or coffee machine flushing.
Agreed, McCafe americanos are quite nice and it's open very early. Some of the fancy artisan places often open later than advertised or are understaffed in the morning with staff waltzing in late.
