A small matter of procedure

This brings us to the question of whether to tip the coke into the half-empty coffee cup, or the coffee into the half-empty coke can. Factors to be taken into consideration include, but are not limited to, the following:

i. The preferred ratio of coke to coffee,
ii. The preferred temperature of each component liquid (separately and/or combined),
iii. The relative pricing of the component liquids (see Appendix I),
iv. The desired quantity of the resulting combination.


Update:
It was agreed that we would look into the possibility of providing an alternative container for the combining of the two liquids. [Action point: JM to investigate.]




Appendix I



In August 2003 a 330ml container ('can') of Coca-Cola ('coke') retailed from Cambridge Vending Machines Ltd. ('the drinks machine') at £0.50.

Coffee followed a more complex pricing matrix, viz.:

BLACKBLACK WITH SUGARWHITEWHITE WITH SUGAR
Fresh Brew£0.00£0.00£0.00£0.00
Instant Medium Roast£0.00£0.00£0.00£0.00
Espresso£0.10£0.10n/an/a
Cappucinon/an/a£0.10£0.10


All types of coffee are sold in the same measure, that is, "small plastic cup".
