I boil water and pour it over the grounds in one of these:



best coffee to be had at home, beats any machine hands down (IMO).

For beans, I like these guys:

but agree with the posts that almost any good local roaster is worth it.

Sweet Marias is great... If you buy already roasted beans, you have no idea how great coffee can be. Within three days the flavor profile of an already roasted bean detriorates to a noticeable degree. I roast, and consume in 24 hours. Burr grind it, french press it... whatever... but roasting your own will open your eyes to just how poor pre roasted beans are!

We quite enjoy Ceremonial Dance Mildly Dark Organic by Tribal Java. They are whole beans and makes for a really nice pot of coffee.

I use a Bunn coffee maker and Folger's classic roast for most mornings while getting ready for work. Folger's is decent coffee and the Bunn coffee maker is very quick and easy. I drink ALOT of coffee through the day, so cost is a factor. I also like the Cafe Bustelo and some of the dard starbuck's like French roast and Sumatra. When I have time and whole beans, I like to use my French press.

I've heard about the "roasting your own beans" deal and would like to try that sometime, but it really seems like too much effort.

I have found that whenever I find something that seems like too much effort it only means I haven't drank enough coffee yet that day.

P.S. I like 2 double espressos in the morning. Any bean will do. I also really like McDonald's coffee.

One of a couple things I will order in McDonalds (the only fast food I eat,..rarely) is their coffee. Lots of folks are changing over from the more popular places since they changed their coffee. It is good.

Choose grind #7 for drip.

Buy 4 pounds and shipping is free. A full pound costs less than $10.

They roast on Mondays, so order on Tuesday morning and ask for this week's roast.

Sweet Maria's and Coffee Bean Direct have been good historically too, especially if you get into home roasting. I drink espresso and I used to roast my own, but now I just buy Zabar's Vienna Roast whole beans exclusively.

They're still running a bit behind because of the hurricane, but things should sort out soon.

Buy local. Screw Wally World.
LoVe your promoting buying local! Great idea! I need to look into what is available via Freshfully.


We've been buying Community Coffee (out of New Orleans) since I've been going down there. Of course, it's available here in Birmingham but you can buy online. It's the smoothest and richest flavor for the money and for an everyday, drinkable coffee. It reminds me of a coffee you'd get at a nice restaurant or upscale hotel.
