coffee - Page 2

post #21 of 91
I've been roasting my own for about 10 yrs on and off. I enjoy roasting at home....but we have a very good roaster nearby too.

I prefer french press or espresso...but my wife usually gets up first and makes a drip pot.

Ethiopian Yirgacheffe is my favorite single origin bean.

I have more $ tied up in coffee stuff than I do in smoking equipment. I just realized that....

Intelligensia coffee is a great place to order roasted coffee from. It arrives at your door about two days after roasting.

We too roast our own and man what a difference in quality and in price. I buy from sweetmarias.com and coffee is about $4.50 per pound - we make expresso every morning for our drive to work. I actually have some roastinng as I type this - our son and his family just left with the small stash we had

Whatever is on sale in a medium roast.

My favorite Gevalia Coffee Costa Rican Pea berry but can't afford that stuff everyday. It is not a flavored coffee btw just a really good medium roast.

My everyday coffee is folgers special roast.

Ever since I started drinking coffee from my Keurig K-cup coffee maker, everything else I try just tastes nasty. I really like my Emeril's Big Easy Bold. Whenever I'm away from home, I can't wait to get back so I can have a REALLY great cup of coffee.

I like the original cowboy coffee when I get it, Arbuckles. Otherwise plain old Folgers.

I wake up with Folgers. Have yet to try Dunkin donuts, out here in California we don't have them yet.

Maxwell House Master Blend has been my coffee of choice for years. I recently bought a bag of Dunkin Donuts regular blend & it's good stuff. I'm not convinced its worth twice the price of MH. A friend of mine swears by Chock Full O Nuts & I plan to give that a try the next time I buy coffee.

Being here in Italy, I figure I would drink there coffee. So far about a year I have been drinking Kimbo coffee. I agree that with coffee and cigars they should taste just like that ......coffee and cigars

I'm a little late to the party (haven't read the entire thread) but I'm a Dunkin' Donuts coffee guy.

I live out in the country and I like to have my coffee fresh brewed as I stumble out of bed; I buy bags of Dunkin' Donuts medium roast whole bean (the "normal" blend) and set my Cuisinart coffee maker up before I go to bed to go off like an alarm clock *every* morning. Heck, the nearest Dunkin Donuts is more than an hour's drive from home; when I get near one, I stock up on the 1 lb bags of whole bean. If you buy them in the store 4 lbs at a time, you get them for $5/lb (which is SIGNIFICANTLY less than the price at the grocer for the orange bags, which are only 12 oz and cost more - works out to nearly $10/lb average)

I don't like all the flavored coffees and the dark roasts. If I have guests come to the house that want something different, I have a spare coffee maker for them to use because flavored coffee going through my machine seems to take several pots to get the after taste out of it. icon_mad.gif

I also take my coffee with cream and sweetener (I use Truvia sugar free sweetener because I'm a 4 glucophage per day guy)

So much about a cup of coffee is everything else that goes in to it: The quality of the water, the creamer used (I use half-and-half), the temperature of the brew, etc. I like everything about travel EXCEPT for the morning cups of coffee because they're not the same and not exactly what I want.

Another home roaster here. Been roasting my own for at least 7 yrs.

Some of my favorite beans are Ethiopian and Yemen. And on that note I have a Red Sea blend that has a dry smell like chocolate covered cherries after grinder. Just wonderful stuff.

This thread has a lot of good stuff happening in it so I have made it a sticky. Be interesting to see where it leads and how far it goes. Thanks for getting it started, Pike!

Big fan of Duncan Coffee's Cafe Kilamanjaro & Costa Rican. Duncancoffee.com or Texascoffee.com. Duncan's is a local roaster here in Houston. They've been around for about 100 years and have several great single origin, blends & flavored coffees and several teas as well. I order online and in a day or two it arrives at my door still warm from the roaster!!

Also a big fan of Britt from Costa Rica and bring home a bunch every time I go to CR.

I can't stand coffee unless there is a ton of sugar and cream in it. I stay away from it since it usually give me a stomach ache. I drink tea daily. I converted a old coffee pot into my tea pot. Makes it easy to brew my tea in the morning.

I've really been getting into teas lately. But for coffee I love Kona!
