Just thought I would take a survey and see what kinds of coffee everyone drinks…...

I personally like Folgers and Kroger brand coffee. Black. No cream or sugar. Call me simple. I do like the occasional starbucks visit, but they have just gotten too expensive to go on a regual basis.

Well, let me know what is everyone else’s choice.

Dark roast, freshly ground, very strong, black, no sugar.

No Dunkin Doughnuts or Starbucks, please.

Yuban original. Ground coffee beans and water. If you add anything else, its a soda pop.

Black with sugar. Surgar makes it taste better.

Fresh ground Starbucks dark and bold, brewed at home in the morning. Starbucks on the way to work. Starbucks between 1 and 2, and then I brew another pot of Starbucks late afternoon. They may be closing some stores around the country but probably not any within a 60 mile radius of my house. Black, strong, hot and frequent.

Tim Hortons is the fave up here in Canada.
I’m looking at a proper brewer and some decent coffee now as I only drink a bit and it has to be good or its really bad.
I have almost completely switched to a brand of Green Tea from China.
No additives ( cream or sugar and delicious once your tastbuds are trained.)

I’ll drink all kinds, but my favorite is a Guatemala Antigua, medium roast. I love to mess around with roasting my own. I have a little small-batch roaster and buy the green beans over the net. It’s amazing how one can “adjust” the same coffee beans to a multitude of flavors by changing the roasting time by just a few minutes in either direction. Then, of course, the grind makes a difference too.

There are 100’s of kinds of coffee beans available, and you can roast coffee beans with any hot-air corn popper…so give it a try. You won’t believe how un-exciting the canned coffee tastes after you’ve spoiled yourself with this little side hobby!

Over here in Malaysia I enjoy Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. Of course, I’m not picky. I’ll brew and drink just about anything – instant, decaf, whatever.

Kenya AA with Tanzania Peaberry and Ethiopian Harrar as second and third choices (beans – ground just before brewing); Yuban as the “Crap, we’re out of coffee!” pantry backup. Then there are two vacuum sealed cans of Café du Monde Chicory Coffee in the basement in case of tornados or ”Nuke-U-Lar” attack. I’ll take mine with enough whitening agent to yield a saddle brown cup of Joe, or black’s good too. If involved in a forced march, would be willing to chew grounds.

Thomas Premium Blend from St.Louis (they sell it locally where I am) and Cafe Du Monde’s coffee and chickory. I do like mine diluted with the white stuff and some sugar, tho… I’m with Doug- I’d chew the grounds if I had to. I don’t do Starbucks anymore, too expensive. I’d rather buy a tool…
