Black coffee for me.
Used to drink it with cream and sugar, but when pregnant for daughter 30 yrs ago, the cream bothered me and then it was to sweet so lil by lil the sugar left and now it is black only

my favorite coffee is Tim Horton's coffee - use to get just at the resturant but now it is in the grocery stores.

Hmmm sounds good think Ill go make a pot

I prefer the Freshroast...I generally like dry-processed coffees, and they produce a lot of chaff. The Freshroast just blows it out, but the Caffe Rosto recirculates the hot air, and the chaff can build up quickly and stop the air flow. You might consider starting out with a hot air popcorn popper. Same baych size, and much less $$$ to get started.

And let me mention here that if you think you want to roast your own coffee but don't want to make a big investment in something you're not sure of, no worry. You can roast coffee in small batches in a hot air popcorn popper. Please note that the popper needs to be of the type that has the hot air inlets in the sides of the roasting (popping) chamber, not on the horizontal bottom surface. Find them in thrift stores for under five dollars. Find good instructions here

Wow! This thread has inspired me to try some new coffees. I am a coffee whore of sorts and as long as it's not instant I am all over it. I even have the bad habit of making a pot before bed, having a cup, and then microwaving cups in the morning. I prefer the stronger coffees but don't care for flavored. If I want flavor I'll add Bailey's...
