I had GM only once when McDonald's was using it. It was all right. Better than what they were using prior to that. The first kind they had was so gross, I couldn't get past the first mouthful.

What can I say. When you are in a hurry on your lunch hour, you go to the closest place near your work.

Glad I could give you all a chuckle. Every once in a while the frustrated Creative Writer Wanna-Be in me sneaks out and has fun.

I figured the word "coffee" in the first paragraph was a give-away. Guess I was wrong?

I hear you Andy. The coffee was good enough, but it was all starting to taste the same. Plus, they have grown so large compared to when we first started buying it, they now felt all "corporate" to me. If you don't have a store-bought coffee you adore, you might want to check Dean's website. They list the coffee shops and stores that sell either ground coffee or sell it buy the cuppa. Might be one near enough to you to try, or along your route as you shop around town. We're enjoying Dean's a lot right now. We'll see how we feel about it down the road.

We only drank coffee in the morning and always used a regular coffee pot.
Since my MIL likes coffee throughout the day, my wife bought a single serve machine. Keurig is the name.

She also bought this little container that holds ground coffee and is used in place of the K-Cups.
You ad your own choice of coffee and as much or little as you need and it fits right into the K-Cup receptacle.
So no need to buy "their" coffee. We can use any kind we want. Its always Kirkland Signature 100% Colombian.

However, when I am in Costco next time, I will look at the K-Cups and see how much they are. Sometimes it pays for the convenience.

We also bought the 'use your own coffee' containers. My issue is that you cannot get enough coffee into the container to make a good cup of coffee.

Is it true that in the US, you all drink soft light coffees all day long?
In France, coffee is drunk at breakfast time and after the lunch. 3 coffee spoons of coffee (mix of robusta and arabica) for a mug.
In the morning or afternoon work break, dishwater coffee at the office machine.

Excellent read and your passion for coffee shines forth. My wife of 43 years and I share your passion for the caffeine bean. We enjoy too much coffee to opt for a Keurig machine and our Cuisinart coffee maker is on a timer so it is freshly brewed as we wake up. I hope you don't get 'jilted' by your new coffee relationship!

I have the standard drip Mr. Coffee maker. Serves me well. As soon as one pot is made I remove the spent grounds and prime the maker for the next pot. I also shut the maker off. If I want a hot cup, I can put it in the microwave to heat it up. I don't like leaving the coffee maker on for the sake of keeping the coffee hot. I found that after a while, about halfway through the pot, the coffee is bitter. I believe it is because the heat of the coffee is going up through the hole in the lid and leaching the bitter oils back into the coffee. Now my coffee has no bitterness right down to the last cup. :For the amount of coffee I drink each day, I would need a couple of cases of K Cups each month. angel:
