    Sumatra for weekdays. Flavored on the weekend (walnut-maple-bacon from Kalamazoo Coffee Company is my current favorite.) Whole bean. Grind my own just before brewing. Use a Bunn coffee maker. Heavy cream.

    Coffee is coffee to me. I drink whatever is on sale for my Kurieg.

    This woodford reserve double oak aged Guatemala Gesha coffee is my current favorite. Rather cost prohibitive though, so my go to is usually a Sumatra dark roast. No sugar no cream. Chemex pour over. Ember mug to keep temp accurate.

    Bones coffee is my go to when I want flavored coffees on the weekends.

    Been on a Peru or Mexico kick from a local roaster lately. Lighter roast which I think mixes well with summer. Grind prior to making. Aeropress. No cream no sugar.
    Got a new cold brew maker for Father’s Day, trying to find the best roast for it.

    Best roaster I have found and I tried a lot across the nation.  I place an order and they usually roast and mail it within 24 hours and it's at my house 2 days later.  Optimal degassing period is another several days and then it's singing!

    Yeah, but that Flint water is an automatic upgrade for any coffee.

    That brown water would at least make the coffee a richer brown color.  I live outside the city and my house is on a well.  However, I work in lovely downtown Shangri-La (aka Flint, MI).

    My Flint water story:  I worked downtown when the water screw-up occurred.  I went to use the toilet and noticed the water was brown.  I thought “For Pete’s sake!  Some a$$hole didn’t flush after himself.”  So I flushed the toilet and the water didn’t change color.  I figured that was not a good thing.

    I get 5# bags of Columbian from Dean's Beans about every 6 weeks. Roasted day of order (depending on what time I place the order) and ships out the day it's roasted. Arrives the following day.
    I grind the beans for the morning cup when I'm ready to brew. I use a KitchenAid pass-through grinder for this (slow grind so no heat build-up). Then let it brew in the maker for consumption. Either right into my mug, or into a vacuum insulated thermos for consumption once I get to the office. 
    I used to get the beans from a place called Gloria Jean's but they've pretty much no longer around (not sure if they have any stores left, anywhere). Was a shame since I could get the 5# bags from them too. But, the coffee from Dean's Beans is a LOT fresher.

    Check them out sometime. 

    BTW, I've tried Starbuckers, DD, etc and have not had even a decent cup of coffee from them. I've given up on getting good coffee from any chains. The place I'll have breakfast next Friday (a little cafe in Freeport, ME) has decent coffee. I go there once a year for a 'cheat' breakfast. ;)

    My favorite coffee? Jamaica Blue Mountain. When I have arm and a leg to spend.

    Otherwise, a local roaster, Zen Cafe, does a good job, and their Ethiopian is a preference when I only want to pay 3 fingers.

    But over the years, far and away the brand most bought is 8 O'Clock original.

    I’m the only one in the house who drinks coffee, and it’s one cup at most. so I get K cups. It’s a treat when I can have some fresh coffee in a pot. Anyone have any recommendations for single serve other than the keurig?

    I buy whole beans and grind by hand in a javapress hand grinder. I make the coffee in a Aeropress.

    Folgers Instant!

    Ok, I'm a tea drinker not a coffee drinker so I really couldn't say what a great cup of Joe tastes like but I keep some of the Folgers on hand just for cooking/rub purposes.

    No coffee here. My grandma said it would stunt my growth... 
  • I generally cut Starbucks dark roast (whole beans) with espresso. I like my coffee strong enough to stand a spoon in it. 

    This is may be controversial to some, but I actually believe that bean to water ratio is more important than bean quality, with most people using too few beans to water. Give me mediocre beans in correct (to me, anyway) ratio over great beans at incorrect ratio anyway. 

    I am no barista, but I get compliments on my strong and flavourful coffee from all who visit my abode.
