I honestly canNOT find the perfect coffee to brew at home. I would typically buy what's cheap/on sale and 'whatever- it's coffee.' haha. But when it's over, I end up going back to Folgers and it tastes great. But after drinking folgers for a week, it's suddenly not so great. I have liked Maxwell House on and off over the last 12 hours, but I never buy it to brew at home (it gets brewed at work usually). But, like I said, I don't think any of them are really my all-time favorite. I haven't found it yet.

Stumptown French roast, fresh roasted and ground at home for every pot. Here in the PNW we know coffee. The rest of the country is hopeless.

I think it's very annoying how those from the PNW like to rub it in others' faces that they have the best taste in coffee. That's just it - taste. We are all allowed to like what we like and those in the PNW have a preference for a certain type of coffee, while other parts of the country and world have other preferences.

I love Folgers everyday. Kaladi Bros Alaskan coffee is a close second. Some restaurants serve an anonymous coffee that I love, and when I go there, I barely eat because I'm drinking cup after cup of coffee instead! Starbucks is overpriced crap, IMO. I only go there in dire emergencies. When I'm out, I like McDonalds or Panera Bread's coffee. The popularity of the Keurig coffee system mystifies me. The coffee it makes is consistently bland and weak, even if I fill my own K-cup. Plus it costs around $75/lb with that method

^^^This. We buy the 2.5 lb bag of Seattle Mountain beans - freshly roasted in the store. Great coffee and a great price. It's usually $12.99 - $14.99 for the bag. I grind my own but you can also use the store's grinders if you want to bring home the ground version.

Lately I've been experimenting with the coffees at Trader Joe's. I am really digging their New Mexico Piñon coffee and their 100% Kauai.

If I'm going to buy coffee outside the house, I'll usually do Dunkin Donuts for iced coffee.

Trader Joe's Wake Up Blend and Breakfast Blend. Both are good medium roasted coffees that are Fair Trade (no slave labor) and at a very good price. Not a fan of the slave labor thing, but I am also on a budget. Starbuck's burns their coffee IMHO, but many people like burnt coffee. We now have a Pete's in our area and they also burn their coffees. Way overpriced, but I am used to Trader Joe's, so I like value.
