So, Im sitting here at my desk, preparing to leave to camp out in Wal Mart for Black Friday (I want a GPS!), and Im sipping on a delicious cup of Mountain Blue coffee that I just ground in a antique coffee grinder (I was desperate).

My other favorite is Starbucks, but this one is kicking Starbucks butt.

What are you favorite coffee brands/ mixtures?

Mine is (dare I say) Duncan Donuts regular bean I grind myself. After drinking Starbucks and all the other overpriced designer coffees, this tastes best to me.

Santa Barbara Roasting Company and some of the Eight O'Clock coffees, believe it or not!
Verve in Capitola, CA also roasts some excellent coffee.

Trader Joes has some pretty good coffees at a reasonable price. I like their extra dark sumatra. We also have a very good local roaster here in Raleigh, NC. Tradewinds Coffee Co. They have several very good roasts. They supply many of the finer restaurants in the area.

When I'm out and about, I like Starbuck's brewed coffee, I won't spend the money for the fancy coffee drinks, but I like it strong and that's how they brew it. For at home, I usually buy Trader Joe's Bay Blend ( a dark roast) and mix in 30 to 50% their decaf French. Grind the beans fresh every morning and drink it black. I've heard that Jamaca Blue Mountain coffee is some of the very best, but I have not had the chance to try it. Is Mountain Blue the same?

I like organic Green Mountain blend as well as Starbucks's Pike Place.

I also looooove Kona coffee from Hawaii.

Sumatra or Costa Rican, ground fine, prepared with my Aeropress. (http://www.aerobie.com/Products/aeropress_story.htm - broken link)
We've had fancy and not-so-fancy machines but this makes the best coffee ever: Fresh, smooth and rich.
