    Who here loves coffee? What's you're favorite kind of coffee?

    My favorite store bought coffee = Dunkin' Donuts. Good shit, blows away that craptastic stuff they serve at starbucks. Bleh.

    When I make coffee at home, I like Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee... At nearly $50 a pound it's not an every day coffee... But it's GOOD! The smell of fresh ground Jamaican Blue Mountain is totally intoxicating, it just smells that damn good.

    As for a coffee maker, I use (and can't reccomend enough!) an aeropress.

    I love coffee.
    My favorite coffe I get from a local coffe shop. It's their Breakfast blend. Not sure what kind of beans are in it but it sure tastes great.

    If they have the peaberry that is amazing. It's baby coffee beans, and just amazing. It's also more expensive than liquor so I don't buy it much :)

    I love coffee, but I go through phases where I drink it everyday, and then I go months without it.

    But I usually like the strong stuff with a lot of flavor.

    I could not live without my coffee. :D
    First thing I do in the morning, everyday of my life... :lol:

    I seriously love coffee. I have it mostly in a Bodum or sometimes in a expresso maker.
    I buy mostly equitable coffee from Ethiopia or Mexico. "Velouté" mostly (more cafeine)!

    I loves me some joe. I actually like Starbucks and Carribou stuff, but I will admit to disliking the prices. When I'm at home I usually ending up brewing some run of the mill type stuff. I really need to start buying "better" coffee. I do perfer quality coffe though.

    I drink a local blend from a great shop thats been around here for 15 years or so, Mexican bean made. Tim Hortons isn't that bad, but I don't like run of hte mill coffee besides Timmies whatsoever.

    And I had a McDonalds coffee today as I was half-concious at work, and that was hte most God-awful thing I've ever forced myself to drink.

    I love coffee, it is another of s7eve's essential food groups in fact I am constantly looking for ways to include coffee in meals. I put coffee in my pies, on my meat and most cooking, in my ice cream, on my nutella sandwiches, well you get the idea. I appreciate fine coffee however (and let me tell you I get shit for this all the time) my favourite coffee is and always will be Blend 43.

    My friend, who is a manager at a McDonalds, says they used to re-used coffee grinds until the 'Premium' coffee came out, then they had to change it each time. :nuts:

    I'd rather go to Dunkin' Donuts or Wawa for cheap coffee. (Wawa especially, their coffee is legendary!)

    Hey, whatever tastes good to you :yesway:

    ...Personally.... A freshly opened can of folgers brewed with bottled or filtered water makes one hell of a cup of tasty coffee! It only works for the first cup, but MAN is it delicious.

    Dunkin Donuts coffee is fuckin' awesome. I am a coffee snob, I have my own espresso machine, I buy and grind gourmet beans, I just love coffee period. I hate to admit my DD love but it's true... Damn, I think its time to brew a pot right now.
