Who has the best coffee?

Hardee's coffee is ok, Duncan Donuts is not too bad either. But my question is, does seven eleveen have good coffee?. I know Starbucks is good but i do not have a starbucks in my area.

Starbucks coffee really ain't that great...well, I guess compared to Duncan Donuts and Seven Eleven it is (the theory of relativity as it relates to coffee).

I don't know where you heard that Starbucks has good coffee, but it certainly wasn't from anybody who likes coffee.

Go find a Local Coffee Shop (LCS) that roasts their own. Failing that, get thee to a Peets.

locally, that would be Mazzaro's at 28th/22nd... not only freshly made Italian pastries, breads, and two-pound muffins but the barista is *awesome* too!

Around here, there's a little café called Jeneane's that's darn good. They roast their own coffee and has a wide selection of French & Italian pastries too.

Ok, I admit it...I like Starbucks alot.
a 24oz Vente just cant be beat for
NY Thruway miles.......Dunkin' D-Nutz is
OK, but I believe a lot of them run water
through the grains twice or something like that.
More often than not, its just brown water.

you dont mind supporting Ronald Mcdonald,

- sure!

- IIRC, Mazzaro's is closed Sundays, open 9-6 M-F, 9-2 Saturday...

- the sandwiches are *very* good - $4.50 (almost too much for one sitting)... almost...

Coffee

Sounds like you're in the North East.

I'd suggest some companies that support cycling teams-Jet Fuel Coffee or Jittery Joes.

I buy organic coffee too at my local health food store. They have a whole little rap on it how it doesn't hurt the environment, good for the native economy, and doesn't exploit children, etc. Oh and it tastes good too.

We bought an organic, free trade Sumatra at our local coffee shop. It's seriously the best coffee I have ever tasted.

You've just made my little dogs very nervous. They're happy to hump each other, but you put some crazy fear into them.
