I was reluctant to drink it after having done KP several times and watched the cooks dump some egg shells into the coffee grounds. When I asked, I was told it added to the flavor and made it less bitter.

Adding salt to coffee also cuts the bitterness. If I must drink cheap coffee, I'll add a pinch of salt and drink it black.

When you are brewing in that quantity - FIVE GALLONS at a time on each side, the coffee can get really strong very quickly. Egg shells help. The 190-200F water kills any bacteria on the shell.

Yes, the Army serves coffee THAT hot.

I hope they go national. Their product is THAT good. BTW, they do ship throughout the US. Their best deals are on the internet and through their e-mails.

^^^Me too. I am not brand loyal by any stretch. I have tried and liked many coffees over the past few years. And I have also tried and disliked many coffees. I wasn't always a coffee drinker---only began drinking it regularly after moving from a warm climate to a cold climate. I must say I have never had a bad cup-o-joe from Caribou Coffee. And, like many others here, I am not a Starbucks fan--although I will have a café latte when I visit the bookstore that has a StB in it. At home, I am currently enjoying some blend from Trader Joe's. Bruegger's Bagels also serves decent coffee, IMO.

Like he said Not that the Stumptown is my favorite, but the choices in the poll don't include any of the good stuff, except Starbucks. I buy Allan Brothers coffee, whole bean, and grind it for each cup.

I like all three, it's not an either/or situation. Just depends on my mood.
