Caramel Schnopps? I wish I was going today so I could find some. That would would be really good after I come back from snowshoeing. I'd add a little coffee to it of course.

Peppermint Schnopps is great in hot chocolate.

Mint chocolate coffee is good too. And I think just about any liquor would be good in coffee!

my mom used to do it too, though I never knew why until Bewitched said that! I've never tried it, but I'll have to keep it in mind.

Green Mtn Coffee is my fav, DD is okay, Maine Coffee Roasters, not so good, New England Coffee, easy to taste why it's half the price of good coffee. Love the one cup at a time Green Mtn Coffee machine.

Now, My Dad used to say it would put hair on your chest. But, I told him "I don't have any room for hair, so give me a little more coffee"
Favorite is Green Mountain...can't wait to get it again.

For "every day standard" I usually have Folger's Columbian or French Roast on hand. For weekend treat I usually have some Gevalia on hand, usually Mocha or Cinnamon (but occasionaly Jamaican, or Kenyan or Guatamalan).

When I need a real good caffeine fix, this is hard to beat:

I do like Green Mountain and New England. And even though I like the foo foo flavors, Bob that pumpkin pie one didn't do a thing for me! lol.... Southern Pecan and also the Hazelnut from Green Mountain are my favorite flavors. There's a breakfast blend that's nice, and I like the Vermont Country Blend too.
Ugh, hazelnut...gag me with a spoon. My wife likes it, I made her get a seperate brewer just for the hazelnut- I can't stand it and I can still taste the essence of it even after 5 pots of regular coffee have been brewed after.

For coffee out, it's DD if there is one, or Tim Hortons as a second choice. Starbucks is only for the times I want a mocha cappuchino and there is no specialty coffee house around.

My coffee has to be hot, black and sweet, milk just polutes the flavor (except the cappuchino).
