Why does coffee from gas stations and fast food rest. taste so water downed vs. coffee from starbucks or an indie coffee shop?

cuppED- they are more than likely using pre- measured, pre-packaged robusta coffee in air tight bags...enough for 8 cups of nasty coffee. Most specialty shops grind their own arabica, and weigh them to their specs on a scale..here in Florida we have Hess gas stations who believe it or not sell half decent arabica coffee by the cup. Stop at a coffee shop on your way to the gas station.
