Where are you buying coffee when you’re out? Are you buying it because you enjoy that coffee or because it’s convenient at that location?

I’ve found convenience is important but good reasonable priced coffee is important as well.

The poll has multiple choices

I buy it as a 'treat" and because I enjoy it.

I enjoy Mc'Ds coffee, it's close, great flavor, reasonable in price. I also will get a cup at Circle K at times when I'm on the go, however that has been a while. Mc'D has a senior price that can't be beat.

In the last three years I have bought maybe five coffees in shops, for a total expenditure of about $10. I make coffee at home. If I leave early I take the homemade coffee with me. I bought a travel cup.

Hmmmm.
I'll get a cup from the in-store Starbuck's when I'm grocery shopping. When traveling I like Sheetz coffee, the Seriously Dark Roast. I think Starbuck's is somewhat bitter tasting.


For home consumption I get whole bean Columbian Dark Roast. We've started drinking a couple varieties from a local roaster called Oyster Reef and Eco Reef.

Mrs. NBP also likes flavored coffees occasionally, especially chocolate raspberry.

I rarely buy coffee since I don't like strong coffee. I have a certain way I like it and usually carry it with me in a larger coffee travel mug. Every now and then I'll buy a special iced coffee that I consider more of a desert than a coffee.

^^ I too don’t care to “strong” coffee and have to avoid those shops that sell it. I have noticed however that I can get some places to give me have regular and half decaf to cut some of the “strong” favor and enhance the coffee for me.

I enjoy using my own travel mug and homebrew but can’t always take it with me to some locations during the day.

After years of drinking grocery store swill we finally found Schwan's coffee.

This coffee is so smooth that you can drink it all day with no stomach upset at all. You will find this coffee online or door to door so give it a try if you want some really great coffee.

We find the medium roast to be our favorite but there are two other blends to choose from.........

I love Seattle's Best coffee, but it can be hard to find here in AZ. Lucky for me, it is the coffee of choice for my employer.

My husband strictly likes MJB, but has found the Kirkland brand to be a sufficient replacement.

I also like Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf for a special treat now and then. I love their tea lattes.

I've found Seattle's Best sold at Borders Bookstore. Great coffee but a little strong for my liking when I buy it at the snake area inside. Making it at home I can make it to the strength that I like.
