Where is your favorite place to get coffee?

Mine is this locally owned coffeehouse by one of the commuter train stations in my neighborhood.

I actually grind my own coffee!! I think it tastes better! I bought a bag of Millstone beans from Sam's Club about a month ago or so and the bag isn't even 1/4 empty yet!

If I drink coffee (and that is very rare indeed), I get mine from a little square can labeled "General Foods International Coffees", Irish Creme flavor! smile.gif

When I buy coffee to make at home, I have a subscription to Gevalia. Love those people. When I'm out, I go to a little coffee shop in town where they make espresso fit to slide out of the cup and slap yo' mama. They're some of my favorite people in the world. LOL

I purchase green coffee beans from a co-worker who has a micro-business on the side and roast them at home. It makes the BEST coffee and green coffee beans have no known shelf life, so keep forever. Once coffee has been roasted and ground it looses flavor very quickly.

At work I have Kaladi Roasted Coffee beans available, which I can grind for my brew.

I almost never purchase coffee away from home or work. It just doesn't taste the same.

Life is too short to drink bad coffee or cheap beer.

I drink Caf Olimpo, It's packaged a few miles from where I work and is by far the most popular brand out here where I live. Sort of a regional thing since there is a big rivalry between this area of the country and Chiriqui Province where the big coffee plantations are.

One thing about living down here is that a person would have to work really hard to find any coffee, packaged or not that had gone stale. Most of what is produced is exported and many of you are probably drinking coffee from here without even realizing it. I think it is funny when I have the chance to meet new gringos here and they order cafe americano which is a regular coffee cut half with hot water. Coffee here is really strong and flavorful. I was always a black coffee person until I came here, and this coffee is impossible to drink without adding milk and sugar. Or the classic style like the country folks drink it, milk, sugar and a chunk of white cheese.

I never have cared for Starbucks. All the Starbucks around here taste like they brew their coffee with mop water. I prefer Caf Luna (the local coffee house mentioned before), Dunkin' Donuts, White Hen (a local chain of convenience stores), and the newer BP and Mobil stations.

Coffee Times, on Regency road, in Lexington, right at the other end of Moore Drive from Nicholasville road, immediately inside the circle, turn left at the first light after getting off the circle, end of the street turn right then immediately left into the first parking lot. Their Highlander Creme is some great stuff, and they've got some hundred some odd other flavors too, which are great. If I go in there to spend time though, I almost always order a Mocha Jo or Mocha Josie. Don't get over there as often as I'd like anymore though, since I'm not in Lexington on a regular basis anymore. Live in Richmond, work in Winchester. miss Lexington entirely on a daily basis.

When I lived in Portland, Maine the best place to go for good brew was Java Joe's in the Old Port.

Most mornings I'd get a Bazooka Joe (with extra shots), and a Josephine Baker for a chaser (three shots of espresso in a dark french roast with cream and cinnamon).

Since moving to metro Boston the only coffee that's drinkable on a regular basis is Dunkin' Donuts, although I've enjoyed good brew at the Rosebud Diner in Davis Square, Somerville (down the road from the Burren for those of you who frequent the pub music scene); there's also a diner near Ball Sq. in Somerville that has decent coffee.

When I'm out, I tend to favor local diner coffee over places like Dunkin's and Starbucks. I don't like Starbucks' business practices; the way Starbucks comes into a town and drives out small businesses (in Portland, two well-loved coffee houses and a tea house went out of business after Starbucks moved in and started undercutting the competition). I also don't like their coffee - The few times I've tried it, it always tastes burnt, as though people don't have enough sense to make a fresh pot. The acrid smell is noticable to me anytime someone brings a cuppa on the train. Peet's, another Starbucks brand, treats their brew with the same distain.

At home, I usually drink Fair Trade coffees. When I find a place that mentions Fair Trade coffee on their menu, I usually order it, too.

I think if coffee is really good, it will stand on its own and not need milk or sugar.

The reason why Starbucks coffee tastes burned is because it is burned; they burn their beans when roasting them.

BTW, right now I'm enjoying a good house blend from Caf Luna.
