    For some of us who "get up with the chickens", that morning cup of coffee is essential.

    We used to have a small retail store that sold wonderful whole bean coffee (among other things) and guess I got spoiled. Now that the store is gone, we're trying to find a good whole bean coffee at the grocery stores. So far, 8 O'clock Original is the best we've come across but we're open to suggestions.

    What's your favorite?

    P.S. Oh, and good morning, hope you're enjoying your 1st cup of the day!

    I like making an Americano with dark roasted espresso coffees, many would say it's ruining the coffee, but I've learned to like it.

    I am spoiled with my coffee. Our oldest daughter works in a coffee shop.... One of my favorites is 1/3 espresso and 2/3 monsson Malabar.

    I like a strong cup of coffee but that might be a bit much even for me!

    Starbuck's breakfast blend. I use a lot of milk and this stands up to it.

    Starbucks Blonde. The lighter roast has more caffeine. And so tasty.
