    What coffee do you guys and gals enjoy?

    I just got a new coffee grinder and am itching to throw some new beans in it. What do you folks like?

    I'm a Peets man from way back. Get yourself a pound of Major Dickason's Blend. You won't be sorry.

    Lavazza.

    It goes down smooth... imported from Italy.

    San Maritz- It's from Switzerland. Also imported. Almost as strong as Lavazza, but just as smooth.

    Jacobs- also from Switzerland. Stronger than St. Moritz, but definitely just as smooth.

    All great coffee.

    It's fair-trade and a % of profits are donated

    It's tasty, too - and relatively cheap for 'gourmet' beans,
    usually on sale at my local market.

    Macy's European Coffee House out of Flagstaff, AZ. They're small, privatly owned, and roast their own beans. Good stuff. I like Black Dog and Costa Rica.

    Been buying from Intelligentsiacoffee.com They roast and ship quick. Usually into our hands w/in 3 days of roasting. I just bought a Jura Capresso S7 superautomatic for my wife. coffeegeek.com gives good recommendations for best coffees for different machines. We upgraded from Capresso's superb Coffee Team coffee maker. It has integrated conical burr grinder.

    Any coffee you buy in a store has been in storage for weeks or months (esp. Illy in those nifty cans in the supermarket). Almost any freshly roasted, whole been coffee tastes great if you have a conical burr grinder - not the little lawnmower blade dealies that Braun and others make.

    If you really like coffee, study info on coffeegeek (another great community website, like bikeforums), and your quality of life will improve.

    Try Old Java, a great coffee used in the stovetop espresso method or espresso machine.

    Regardless of what type of coffee you get, I personally think French press is the best way to make it. Lots of flavor, without a lot of acid.

    I'm a N'Yorker so there's only one to drink...

    Chock Full O' Nuts.

    BTW, a little bad coffee/cycling joke...

    It was rumored that after Lance won #6 Chock Full O' Nuts was going to introduce a coffee honoring him. It was to be called...

    Hi,
    I don't know how to answer your question. Everyone
    is telling you what they like. Let me tell you what I know.
    Back in the 70's I used to buy some of the world's best coffee.
    It was great stuff. I used to get a Columbian that if you used sugar, you'd skip the sugar. I have always been a cream and sugar guy. I used to drink it black just for the taste. I haven't had coffee that good in over 20 years.

    If you don't roast it yourself, coffee is highly perishable.
    Buy it locally, from someone that cares about coffee.Don't buy more than 3 or 4 days worth. You won't get the world's best (unless we're talking 20-40 bucks a pound) but you'll likely get a good cuppa. Try different beans and blends, and
    try different approaches to brewing them. I used to run good medium roast coffee freshly ground through a cheap (but it had a pump) espresso machine. The results were really tasty. I am not suggesting you buy a cheap espresso machine, I am suggesting you experiment. A coffee that blows in your current brewer may taste really good brewed a different way. Take a look at the Krups Moka review at Coffee Geek. I haven't tried that one. But I really want to. I have been told that making espresso is a black art not one in a million can do properly. I wouldn't know, I have never been to a place approved by il cognoscenti. Which is where I part ways with those that make it a religion. If you want to, be my guest, in fact, invite me over for a cup

    Kona Blend (10%) ... even better with a splash of Bailey's or Kahlua.

    I'm with PhattTyre on the point of a French press. Great for coffee or tea.

    While I can rarely find a place that serves it, the best coffee to me has got to be full-on Turkish coffee.
