I shop at Aldi's and like most things, but their coffee is not one of those that I like!! And I definitely am not snobbish about where I shop. This dislike of their coffee is just my opinion of course!! And, as a side note, their instant decaffeinated coffee is the absolutely worst stuff I ever put in my mouth, as it made me ill just sipping it.

-- How about a Jamaican Blue Mountain Brand?
-- There a few monasteries who sell coffee.
-- I also got a catalog from a Wisconsin company named Seroogy's which does chocolates and a lot of coffee bean offerings.
-- Williams Sonoma has Bouchon Bakery coffee -- Medium-dark in the Viennese style roast coffee - Sumatra Golden Pawani is dominant, supported by African and Latin American coffee beans.

Your own suggestions or recommendations?
My friend got married in Jamaica in August and brought back Blue Mountain coffee for everyone. It was great.

Peetz's Domingo or Cafe Solano. Very mild blends.
Then their Sumatra and Uzuri for a bit more potency.

I bought Trader Joe's Bolivian coffee. Pretty good.

Community Coffee with Chicory is our favorite as well. For along time we could not buy it here in north Alabama and would bring a supply back when we went home to visit.

You can order it on-line or on Amazon. Usually, ordering it on-line is cheaper.

I found what I'm doing....a MD roaster called Baltimore Roasters....they happen to have just a few stores/cafes and one is in may area....I can order whole beans or they'll grind it on order ...as little as a 1/4 pound! So I can get several small sort of 'taster' amounts!...AND they have TEAS...AND no shipping, AND of course they have a website, AND they're local. Yeah! It's perfect.

I believe coffee is like beer.

Take the labels off the containers and you might be surprised which get rated the best.

We can buy it at Publix now. Occasionally, I will find it at other stores.
