    I [​IMG] LOVE [​IMG] my coffee. I was wondering what brand you drink, & what's your favorite kind? I drink KAUAI Hawaiian coffee. It's not as good as Kona (my favorite), but its not $18 a pound either. Sometimes I do have to splurge on the Kona though.

    I love Kona. I have a friend who brings me a pound of the real stuff when she goes to visit her folk in Hawaii.

    Otherwise, I like the different varieties that my Keurig affords me.

    Well, I "like" to get the flavored coffees in the small one pound packs (or less) at the grocery store. I like the Hazlenut & the French Vanilla, plus a few of the others. I also like a good Free Trade coffee. I prefer to grind my own beans.

    Failing that, if I buy a major mass market brand, then I prefer Folgers. Lately, my wallet has been settling for Maxwell House, which is definitely not my favorite. However, it's had a few good sales & I stocked up. When coffee goes on sale, I buy six or eight big containers worth.

    I am a big buyer of generic / store brands. Coffee, however, is not a product I can handle in store brand. The exception is for Sam's Club store brand, which is pretty good (but still more than I want to spend right now).

    French roast or most any dark roast, except Starbuck's (tastes burnt) or Dunkin Donuts. Even like the Publix or WalMart store brands.

    I get Ibis, fair-trade organic coffee, grown by a woman's co-op in Africa. Roasted locally and ground at home, bought from my friends at Wicked-Brew for about $11/lb. I like the dark roasts. I used to spend $3 a day and wait in line for someone to make my coffee for me, so $11 a lb. is relatively cheap.

    You would think living here in Latte land, I'd be hooked on Starbucks, Venetos, or Seattle's Best, but "no". They are OK for an occasional Latte, but I like my Safeway brand French Roast. I drink 1 or 2 pots on my days off, brewed dark. At work it is Douwe Egberts. I'm infamous for drinking it till I'm shaking and can't hear well. [​IMG]
