Get over it!

My wholesalers do drop a pound of something good from time to time in my orders. Jamaican Blue, Kona Gold, Mayorga. Too expensive for everyday consumption. I do enjoy a strong cup with an Habano.

Get over what?

Does anyone here order green coffee beans and roast their own? A friend of ours used to (perhaps still does; they've moved) order Kona beans through the mail and roast them in an old hot-air corn popper. Unbelievable fresh taste. Best I've ever had.
It was at a family owned and operated sugar shack and orchard in Canterbury New Hampshire; the owners put on a sugaring off as their gift to the community. Premier dance master Dudley Laufman pulled together a band of fiddlers, flutes and acordians...and called dances in french and english; they played all day and the coffee and donuts and cheese and maple toffee and even the pickles to combat the sweet, were all free. It was a wonderful time, with friends meeting old friends and making new ones; it was a bit of old New England culture and all unadvertised and just plain neighborly. They were selling maple syrup and candy...but that isnt what it was all about.

We all sang the Maple sugar song: several times with gusto

"Bubble Bubble Bubble goes the pan;
Furnish better music for the season if you can;
See the golden billows; watch their ebb and flow
Sweetest joys indeed, we sugar makers know."

I think we're all entitled to our own tastes and opinions. That's the purpose of a thread to discuss everyone's favorite coffee. Maybe there is something out there worth trying that I've never heard of.

And who said they prefered Starbucks?I think Starbucks is overpriced and overcommercialized.

And DD had fabulous donuts!

I personally drink Folgers Classic Roast because it's readily available here in the big can. I use 1.5 times the recommended dosage, though!

El ... shame on you ... go to Krogers and get some Community New orleans blend or if you can find it the "Hotel Blend". That is if you're gonna drink that already ground up stuff. I love driving through Baton Rouge, La. and smelling the coffee roasting (Community)all the way to I-10.

I get 8 12 oz packages of Green Mountain "Breakfast Blend" and to a lesser degree "Vermont Country Blend" shipped here every 5 weeks ... whole beans! I also try a new variety out of their catalogue when the fancy strikes ... even some of their foo foo flavors ("Pumkin Pie" coffee ?????)!!!

The wife will have a pound of whole bean Green Mountain "Lake and Lodge" if we run short of her regular Leelanau beans. It is a bit heartier and very rich smelling. If coffee only tasted as good as it smells I would be a coffee addict.

Designer coffee is not in our budget. We mostly drink good ole Folgers French Roast and honestly I think it's great. When I do get coffee out, it's at our local gas station/convenience store they have Green Mtn Coffee and I like to try the unusual flavors and blends. I am friends with the manager of the place and she gives me my coffee for free (this makes it especially tasty) in return I make minor repairs, take the garbage out to the dumpster on extra cold mornings, shovel snow away from the front door, etc. Works out good for both of us. Sunday mornings I get my Sunday paper and my free cup of coffee, then drive across the street and get a Dunkin Donut coffee for my DW.
