You're like us, Andy.........we have a Keurig and a French Press setting side by side on the table they sat..........one morning we are going to wake up and one is going to be outbrewed........

BTW, I stopped drinking instant coffee.
The cowboy method has been working well for me, either by the pot or by the cup.

But I also ordered this recently and have been using it and I like it. It beats using those Melita paper filters and the thing stores flat, and doesn't take up any space.....perfect for backpacking. I ordered a second one for use at work. I might order another one.

Good thing you stopped drinking instant coffee. Ick. lol. Though I did buy a jar of Nescafe once when we stayed at a rustic cabin, and it wasn't horrible.

I don't think there is any such thing.

When I walk into the store I'm confronted with a choice of at least a dozen different brands, if not more. Although Folgers and Maxwell House are still around, I wouldn't say they are standard anymore. I don't think I've bought either brand in over 30 years.

I used to buy only Lavazza, an Italian brand. It worked best in my espresso maker due to the fact that the beans weren't overly oily. Since my divorce, I've been using a cheap drip coffee maker, only because I don't have much counter space and it has a very small footprint. I still buy good coffee, though. Lately I've been getting it from Fresh Thyme grocery, where it's normally $6.99 a pound. Kona blend and Jamaican Blue Mountain are my favorite drip brews.

I only use instant coffee for cooking/baking (rubs, mocha brownies etc).

I got a Cuisinart grind and brew coffee maker several years ago. I only buy beans. I go to Fairway market and buy a blend of flavored beans. I love fresh ground brew. I am hoping to get the new version for Christmas this year. It has a hopper that holds a 1/2 pound of beans. You add the water, choose cups and strength it does the rest.

Flogers and the Keurig , was still the most common bought last year, so I guess people who dont care about coffee and just want something black still get that. Yeah I checked that up and I asked her and she said, yeah Folgers and Keurig was the brands she used. Lavazza is good, we can get it here too, but with our water Arvid Nordquist is better.
