The Celestial Seasoning teas are in K-Cups, now. I have Earl Grey and Sleepytime.


Pac, I'm glad you fixed your coffee problem and have back up info for the next time you are in a mood to change up your coffee maker.

Yeah, lot's of information tp file away.
If my current maker bites the dust for real I can see me stepping into a Keurig. Hopefully by then the Vue will come down in price, as well as the V cups, and someone will offer an empty V cup to use your own grounds.

Eight O'clock seems to have improved a lot since Tata bought the brand.

Eight O'clock was the houre brand for the A&P. I don't know if they are still around. But the brand has survived.

My uncle used to grind his own in the A&P store, Eight O'clock brand. I still remember, as I used to spend my Friday's with him when I was a kid. He bought his produce at Scolio's if anyone is interested, lol ;^)
I see Eight O'clock on the shelves at the grocery stores, but there hasn't been an A&P in my area in years.

We shop at a regional chain that carries the old A&P coffees and a grinder. We tried that for a while and didn't see a significant difference.

Frankly, most mornings, I don't find myself rating the taste of the coffee. I just need the caffeine delivered by a hot liquid. It gets me going and gets me going...

There are still one or two somewhere in the country. Dolly Madison was also a house brand of theirs. I think their house brands were bought by another company.

Well I found some more reports on the Vue vs Keurig's regular machine and at 80 cents/cup, yowza. Way more expensive than the K cup machines.
And that might be fine for folks who hit up coffee houses, but even in my world where I favor convenience it has me looking towards the cheaper K cup machines... if I go that route.
Today's coffee was bland, but drinkable. I am going to play with different amounts and then pick up a "better" brand to compare that. I think I have reached that point where I want a bit something more from my coffee in the way of flavor.
