Use to be a diehard Folger's fan. But when Hurricane Katrina hit their plant in LA, they jacked up their prices and called it Gourmet. So now it's whole bean 8 O'Clock coffee. I grind it to an espresso like texture. Extra strong, so the spoon stands up in the cup with 2 level teaspoons sugar and T.G. Lee half & half.

Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

Black for me please and whatever is on sale ... we splurge once in awhile and buy a nice bag of beans when we are back in Oregon. My SIL knows all the good places these days :)

Never heard of the stuff you folks mention being a fave! We're not very "gourmet" here at my house.
This household is the same, too. Folgers has always been my favorite! I tend to have mine black, but I occasionally have it with cream and sugar. It depends on my mood.
A little kindness goes a long way.

I like Peet's House blend. Became addicted when I lived in California and now have it shipped to us once a month.

Oh my goodness! Yesterday I had lunch with a friend at Cafe Sabarsky in the Neuwe Museum on the Upper East Side. It's an Austrian cafe, and the coffee!!! Viennese Coffee "mit schlag." -- enough schlag for a family of four! -- and what wonderful coffee. I can still taste it.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

For my taste, the Costco stuff is pretty good. I alternate between the Columbia Supremo, and their Indonesion, I do buy gourmet coffees, and prefer Kona to any other. Always fresh ground, and french pressed.

i like flavored coffee. i buy whole beans and keep them in the freezer till i grind them one pot at a time. when ever i go anywhere there are beans i grab a bag and go down the rows. i chew one bean and if it tastes good some go in the bag, by the time i get to the end of the row my bag is full. i mix all together. at the moment my freezer hold a nice blend of french roast, jamaican, kenya, hazel nut, pecan, almond, chocolate praline, white chocolate, coconut, marshmallow, vanilla, cinnamon and a few others i can't remember. it smells like heaven when i brew a pot. friends call ahead to tell me to put up a pot. coffee-ann is usaully coffee ann some biscuits to go with. halloween tradition is soup, coffee and biscuits. my best friend comes over as soon as she runs out of goodies, for soup (i think she gives out doubles just to run out quicker LOL). i love mine with sugar and 1/2 & 1/2. if i am out it has to be burger king turbo light and sweet.
