the coffee market is fierce, and why wouldnt it be? the last time i got a SMALL coffee at d.d. it was 1.51,!!! so i grabbed my ankles and bought the cup, vowing never to buy another!
i do like coffee, probly drink too much, since viewing a segment on the cooking channel, i always grind the beans just before making, makes a huge difference.
on the road, i tend to buy green mountain coffee in the stores that carry it.
and because im on the road alot, i get to know the cheaper places (stores) that sell it, some stores still sell a 12 oz cup for 79 cents, while others will try to get 1.39,
at 1.39 its about a 500% mark-up

i always hear how "bad" it is, even from the folks that will wait 15 minutes in the d.d. drive-thru to pay an enormous amount of money for coffee everyday...

So who likes pumpkin spice coffee?

Pumpkin pie spice is excellent in coffee for a nice treat too....just sprinkle about a tsp or two onto the grounds before perking

Oh, a hint my southern family swears by....if you have coffee that tends to brew bitter, add a pinch of salt to the grinds before brewing, it takes away the bitterness

Me! I put cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice in my grounds occasionally. Yummy!

Hey if I'm going to ruin the taste of coffee, I'll do it with Jack Daniels.
