The same could be said of many foods though. Who was the first to look at a lobster and think yum? What about snails or leeche nuts or chicken eggs? All of these things would seem disgusting to people who do not know about them.

What about fugu? After a couple of people died horrible deaths after eating it, what possessed some person to say to himself, "I'll bet this fish is super tasty if I can only find a way to keep it from poisoning me. Maybe it will be OK if I smoke it first. Hey, honey try this and tell me what you think."

Geeze, I just love this place.

Mollyanne.......I'm heading out to TJmax. Thanks for the tip!!
Kona coffee is only surpassed by "Blue Mountain Jamaican." in my opinion.

Anyone use the Kuerig brewer? My boss at work had one at home so he bought one for his office too. Then he bought a third one. For traveling. Yeah, he said hotel coffee sucks.

I'll take 3 bags, please!!!

"Blue Mountain Jamaican" coffee at

(Kona blend is there on a regular basis)

vagriller...I've never experienced Kuerig but I

Both the Kona and Jamicia Blue Mountain at TJ MaXX are blends. This can be anything as long as it contains at least some of the advertised coffee.

Having said that, the TX Maxx coffees are pretty good.

We have Marshall's here, TJ Maxx's sibling store. I've tried some of their coffees but I have not seen Kona or Blue Mountain there...yet. I'll keep my eye's open.

[QUOTE=Kayelle;896025]Then there's always Kopi Luwak coffee, for a real taste treat!!

Haha isn't that the coffee Jack Nicholson drank in the bucketlist??? As far as my favorite coffee it is jamaican blue mountain... Haven't been there in years, but I use to go 2-3 times a year, and bring home oodles of bags of beans... It is superb coffee, but very expensive in the states...

Anyone in DC living in Jamaica???
