    Great idea! I generally like a moderate to dark roast. I've been spoiled the last few months with this:



    My manager bought it for the office and we pay to keep it stocked and maintained. It's pretty awesome!

    My favorite coffee in it is from a local-ish company:



    Italy last week was another great experience in coffee, espresso and cappuccino galor!

    Nice idea Tom, Perky Rep!

    Moderate to dark roast as well, and like Tom a bit of cream no sugar. But, I also have to go with decaf, which makes it a little more difficult to try out different coffee brands. Then there's finding decaf coffee that has not been decaffeinated with methylene chloride but uses the Swiss water method. So if you've got a recommendation fitting the above, let me know, always looking for something new in the coffee department.

    Decaffeinated coffee is all about flavor, and we pay our decafs special attention to bring forth the best. This darker version of our decaf is ever-so-slightly smoky and spicy, with gentle notes of chili powder and black pepper. This fully washed, organic coffee comes from Honduras. Big in flavor, this coffee was naturally decaffeinated without chemicals.

    Love mine the darker the better!

    I have an older coffee/ espresso machine that we use for every day.

    Just bought a french press again... Been years as the old one we had broke many years ago... Does create a nice taste.

    I like a small bit of cream but sugar ? Heck no way!!!!

    I am " ok" with Starbucks.... Love Peets as well...

    Fellow LOGger Lee owns a store in Minneapolis called 5 watt coffee... They ship beans all over... Don't very nice unique stuff!

    Invested in one of those cone grinders in spring... Overall love it... It is quiet.... Gets the job done quickly.... Let's you set the coarseness.... And had a timer so you can bring " just the right amount "

    Love my leaved teas as well... Mostly drink teas in the AM but switch around a bit.

    Currently sitting in a s'bucks waiting for the family in Batavia... Sorbet the day working at a surgery center in the southern burbs and we are all going to see a kids musical version of Shrek tonight.

    Easier to hang than to go home and then leave right away!

    Best coffee I have ever had was in Costa Rica. It was black, strong, not bitter!
