I agree, I have a Keurig and love the Newmans own special blend organic.

LOL I had a buddy that swore by Community. Could never get past the chickory. When at the track, I used to make coffee in an old beat up camp coffee pot, 8 oclock boiled for 5 minutes, turn down heat for grounds to settle. Yum! No perculator, no drip. You get to taste all the coffee oils that normally end up on the filter. Last cup was always kinda crunchy.

Excuse me if I come across as elitist, but...

Fresh roasted coffee is best. Buy regularly from a local roaster to ensure freshness. Grind just before brewing. If you can, chat up a local roaster, and ask if they offer public cuppings. That way you can taste several coffees at once to find the perfect cup to suit your tastes.

Light, dark, medium roasts? All a matter of taste. The 3rd wave is all about light roasts, but I prefer the dark side. (+1 for Peet's) Dark roast is Steve McQueen - bold, rich, ballsy, and deep. Light roast is Libarace - fruity, sweet, flowery. Which are you?

Chickory is an abomination.

K-cups? Sure, on a stripper pole.

Home roasting is good way to test your smoke alarm, but leave the coffee roasting to the professionals. Only a well maintained drum roaster can provide the necessary air flow, temperature, and batch time to produce perfectly roasted coffee. You can make wine in your bathtub too, Jiffy-Pop, but it probably tastes like crap.

I'm a professional coffee roaster and I approve this message.

Find a store that has Costa Rican coffee. In particular look for a Costa Rican Tarrazu. But most of the coffees from Costa Rica are good. The real secret to make any kind of coffee better is to buy a cheap grinder and buy whole bean coffee. Then grind what you need for each pot. Greatly improves the taste!

Another fan of NOLA....Cafe du Monde with chicory, buy it through Amazon, and brew it in my Keurig in the little device that holds loose coffee. Goes good with my Vegemite in the morning!
This isn't a joke, I really do that............

No mention of Civet coffee yet . You know ,the one where they feed the bean to the Civet and it craps it out .It's said to be the best coffee available (and very expensive) as the bean has been affected by the digestive juices of the animal .
What ,no takers ?

BTW ,Zarraffas coffee over here is the goods .Dont know which beans they use though .

I've had it, its very good.

Full strong coffee flavour, very smooth with absolutely no after taste.

Don't think I'd pay for it though, its just too much. One of my work colleagues had some given to him as a present, so I drank it for free!

Yeah, and only "certified" mechanics found in dealerships should work on my motorcycle, change tires, change the oil, remap the ECU, add or swap parts, etc.

Seriously, it would be nice if I had a local roaster - may try to find one. I gotta admit though, the popcorn popper roasting method looks pretty cool and easy. May be worth a try if I can find a thrift store popper like the one shown on the video.

One more for the Eight O'Clock bean coffee. I run it through one of these machines, and I love it. I've owned this machine for just over two years now and have never had any trouble with it in any way.

Jura Capresso Coffee Team GS Jura Capresso Coffee Team GS


We grind & brew a full carafe of coffee every morning, and I've never had to clean out the grinder part of the machine. I love how it has settings for volume, coaseness of grind and brews at 200F like the commercial machines. I do clean the machine for scale build-up, but the grinder has NEVER clogged and doesn't throw grounds everywhere. Every bean it grinds goes into the filter basket and nowhere else.

Works for me.
