What brand coffee is good?

I was picking up tools at my local Canadian Tire store on the weekend (18V cordless drill, palm sander,..oil and filter etc) and noticed they had a digital Black and Decker 12 cup coffee makers for $15,...so I bought one.

My ex made the coffee and it was horrible so I drank instant. So I bought some Maxwell House and it's,...okay, but not great.

What are good ground coffee's for those who make it?

Nothing in the world matters to me, except myself, my family and those I consider family. Absolutely nothing else.

I'd have advised you against the B&D coffee maker. I bought one last year and it lasted 2 months.

Maxwell House does suck unless you buy the dark roast and put huge heaping scoops in.

There's a lot of good coffee to be had. Maxwell House is not one of them. If you're after supermarket coffee, try Eight O'Clock. But the best is to find a local brand to support.

For $15 I am not expecting much . Handsome bugger ain't it LOL



And yeah it sucks,..but I drank Nescafe instant Hazelnut or French Vanilla, plop of milk and a Splenda.

Was pretty good. The Maxwell House won't last very long,..I can make it stronger

Yeah, but at times you can get a Mr. Coffee on sale just like it for $19 and it will probably last 5 years. So when my $15 B&D croaked after 2 months I was pretty pissed. Heck, the $8 Walmart special lasted a few years, lol!
