I buy from a local roaster, Larry's Beans. www.larrysbeans.com

Right now at home, I'm enjoying 3 Moon Peru, and Uganda Peaberry. I also like their Authentic Nicaraguan and Columbian. They have a bunch of awesome coffees, but this 3 Moon Peru is a nice blend of big flavor and smooth, non-acidic. I have their Costa Rican in the humidor at my office.

Larry (yes, there is a Larry) has also signed onto fair trade practices and "green" production facilities. Most of his coffees are around $12.00 to $13.00 / lb. I buy whole beans and grind them at home.

All in all, great people to trade with and great coffees for reasonable $$$.

I also buy whole beans from Fresh Market. Their Tres Rios Costa Rican is very nice. Lilly Coffee (canned/ground in gourmet shops) is a bit robust for my taste, but I buy it from time to time and drink it occasionally.

I find that I don't like to spend more than $8 a pound on coffee beans... given that you can make anywhere from 30-40 eight-ish-ounch servings of coffee from grinding your own beans (depending on the prep method, strength of coffee, etc.), it's definitely a bargain over buying cafe coffee, without sacrificing fresh-ground taste. Even if you spend $10 on a pound of beans, you still come out ahead, given that $10 at, say, Starbucks will get you, what, two and a half cups of coffee? But I'm a bargain-hunter.

I was shocked Honey Dew wasn't listed but then realized it's probably only in New England. I chose DD. It's simple, inexpensive, and hits the spot.

I like DD. I wish it were available in whole bean form locally. Ground only, though.

Like many we are cutting back on things we do not need but the one thing we haven't cut back on is the Gavalia coffee. We've cut back on a lot; cell phone extras, we got rid of the Verizon wireless notebook, dumping the land line and we got rid of HBO but so far we have kept the coffee.

A little pricey I think it runs around $32.00 for two pounds which lasts us a month.

I like it, I can tell the difference.

Now adding Eight O'Clock whole-bean French roast to my favorite list. Just ground up my first pot's worth this morning... delicious.
