Could be funny, or could be childish overstatement.  Depends on the context.

I warned you before, Peter, you can't get satisfactory understanding of nuanced ideas and emotional communication from excerpts of English sentences without providing more real world context for examination.  You have a pronounced habit of taking snippets of conversation out of context and asking our opinions, often with no apparent concern for your inflammatory role in the matter.

You a right.  Only because someone copy and post it in a Chinese forum, I could not find the original post.

BTW, I've got an impression that the filter coffee by siphone, pourover, and even ice-drip coffee, are getting more and more popular in US as well as in Austrilia.  Anyone have any comment about it?

Oops- didn't realise Kaffa Cafe was your business Peter. In that case NOT funny. Sorry.

Posted July 6, 2013 link

If Peter has a sense of humor it is incredibly funny.

There's a CG link then I think it says 'If I were in China for the rest of my life and there was only one place to get coffee and it was Kaffa Cafe I would drink tea.'

Posted June 30, 2013 link

That remark is definitely not flattering. But, Peter, as long as you don't get only reviews like that one, don't worry too much. You can never fully satisfy all customers.

No, I don't worry about the customer, and I can understand that the words in the link above was from someone who never tried our coffee, and said it in some special mode, maybe for some of my words or general impression about me.

Anyway, I couldn't find the original post and find out the real reason for it.

I posted it only because someone copy and pasted it in a Chinese forum, and it reminded me of it.
