Allegro roasted fresh at Whole Foods.
Currently enjoying Ethiopian Yergacheffe (sic).
I also like Harrar for a mild roast.
For a heavier roast I prefer a sumatran bean.
Espresso roast for the mocha
for packaged coffee I do like the Illy, its really
good in a bodum too.

anything not starbucks? all their blends taste the same,
overroasted, and over extracted.

I always brew coffee in a Bodum(french press), however I prefer espresso to even the press.

Ditto....although mine is a regular press, not a french (only difference is direction of plunger to remove grounds).

Cocoa beans - which while greatly anhd repetitively denied as having any benefit what so ever by the FDA has probably 30-50 proven bonuses for things ranging from helping to prevent numerous cancers to increasing blood flood to help cleaning the digestive tract.
Versus
poisons and acids that are sending people to early graves and having other side effects that seem to go unnoticed by the rest of the world

Get the real stuff not the crap that they sell over here or for the tourists, was fortunate enough for a while to get the real stuff from Jamaica.

You would not recognise it from the store bought product here.


And if you really want to go coffee nuts drink Bustello Cuban Coffee

LOL....did you read my favorites mentioned? I listed Bustello as my favorite store bought coffee.

The Jamaican Blue Mountain I got was a gift (with some other coffees) from some fancy coffee shop. I think it was supposed to be imported from Jamaica.

I noticed that too, but was going to be nice and let him get away with it.

So were you talking about coffee beans or chocolate beans for all that goodness, TG?
