    Recommend me a good coffee...

    Almost out of coffee. None of the stores around here sell anything besides folgers or starbucks brands whole bean coffee, so I'm looking online.

    I usually get either the breakfast blend from Cafe Altura or something from Alterra Coffee.

    Anyone else know of any good coffees? I prefer a light or medium roast...

    I generally buy green bean coffee and roast it myself.

    I do want to try that someday, but I don't want to smoke up my apartment and it's too cold to do it outside.

    Do you have any Safeway stores? If so, try the safeway select brand Kona Blend or Breakfast Blend. Both are okay. If you have Dunkin Donuts, their original blend is not bad either.

    No Safeways. I think I've seen Dunkin Donuts coffee in the stores around here, but never thought of trying it...

    I actually like Folgers just fine, thanks.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Dunkin Donuts has been making coffee for 40+ years, so they have to know a little somethin, somethin about coffee. It is our everyday coffee right now as casa de jsharr, but I am not a coffee aficionado, I just like it hot, black and not bitter.

    Actually, I've never tried theirs. Illy has great espresso beans. Do you live near a Wholefoods? They usually carry a bunch of tasty bean selections, many of them organic or fair-trade.

    Actually, if you happen to have an Aldi's near you, the Grandessa German Roast they carry is actually a really good coffee. (And it's cheap, too!)

    <$5 a pound.

    Nearest Whole Foods is probably about a five hour drive.

    I'd rather just order online.

    Dunkin' Donuts for a good cup of American Joe. Not burned and you can stomach it black.

    Doood, you must grind the beans right before you brew it. It has much less acid that way. Also, the darker the roast, the lower the caffeine. I recommend organic coffee. It Mother Nature's favorite.

    Most mornings I do use organic whole beans. Folgers is just for the mornings when I need more of a caffeine kick.

    A couple votes for Dunkin Donuts so far, maybe I'll give it a shot...

    T.....do you have a Trader Joe's in your area?

    They carry a coffee I have grown to LOVE in months of late. It's a medium roast organic peabody coffee from El Salvador (or somewhere in Central America). The best part is that its actually pretty cheap too. I get it here for about $5.99/13 oz. can.

    I like this. Probably too dark for you, though.

    Don't you go to Michigan Tech? Go to the Keweenaw Co-Op in Hancock, they have awesome coffee! It's like a small, independent Whole Foods.

    Give Dunkin' a shot. Like you, I live in a rural area with only small stores, a Kroger, and Wal-Mart. I know the Wal-Mart sells Dunkin' Doughnuts Coffee.
