    Where to buy the best coffee
    I love coffee. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to get good quality coffee at a reasonable price?

    I have seen so many affiliate programs popping up with so many different coffees available, it can get really confusing.

    What do you coffee drinkers like to drink?

    Suggestions please

    If you just want to buy coffee for personal consumption (vs. promote sales via aff program), I suggest Blue Bottle in SF area. They are very serious about making the best coffees. They even get tourists from overseas stoping by to try their coffees. The sell it online at http://www.bluebottlecoffee.net/. If you are ever in the LA area, go to LaMill in Silverlake. I had the best cup of coffee in my life there a few months ago. They have a website too - http://www.lamillcoffee.com/,

    The very best espresso is Illy - They have an aff program at CJ. It's way expensive but worth it. :-)

    I grind my own beans so I get mine from coffeebeandirect.com. I love coffee and it's so much better fresh ground. My coffee maker grinds the beans and brews the coffee 30 minutes before I wake up.

    I currently drink Seattle's Best for my morning coffee (filtered).

    For espresso, apart from Illy that has already been mentioned, I personally think Lavazza is good.

    Greg, thanks for sharing the link. I'll definitely try them out.

    Take one fresh store-bought can of Maxwell House. Then use enough coffee in the pot to make SERIOUS coffee.

    The best coffee I drink is 12 cups of water in the coffee maker plus 8 HEAPING scoops of Maxwell House regular blend or "master blend."

    No joke. I've gone to just about every coffee house here in our lame little burg (NOT noted for coffee, I will add), and I've tried a variety of ordered "gourmet" coffees.

    Nothing is as good for a rich, strong cup of coffee than the above Maxwell House recipe. Sorry if that offends you coffee gourmands out there.

    I grew up in a family of REAL coffee drinkers. The sort of coffee drinkers who'll tell you that "too strong" used in the same sentence with "coffee" is a serious grammatical error.

    the Roasterie
    I'm a tad biased since it's a local company to me (and the Bean Baron is a pretty cool guy)...

    http://www.theroasterie.com/

    In particular I like Dark Mojo and Full Vengence ... But one of my customers is a big fan of their Classic Cup Cafe blend which isn't bad at all.

    I'm with you on this one! My coffee can peel paint and has been known to make some of my guests shed tears Now, I make a sissy blend for my guests and keep the paint-thinner blend for myself. If you love it strong, buy some super dark espresso http://www.coffeebeandirect.com/prod...roducts_id=232 grind it, fill to the max and brew. If that won't wake you up, you're dead LOL

    Thanks for the suggestions. I like Maxwell House up to a point, but not much.

    It is like comparing Hershey chocolate to Lindt. Yeah, you like Hershey, but you would much rather have Lindt.

    If I'm making American coffee (dark water IMO) I use Chock Full of Nuts - I've found it as good as any other "pricier" coffee.

    Writerguy - your Maxwell House mud is scary! I drink espresso but your brew sounds positively lethal.

    And I agree with Geno on the Lavazza as a second choice for espresso.

    LOL @Greg: "If that won't wake you up, you're dead."
    Peace,

    I use my Keurig and love the Tullys French Roast or Green Mountain Double Black Diamond.
    Right now my favorite seasonal one is the Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice with Pumpkin Spice creamer. Yummy!

    I love the Keurig k-cups as well. The Green Mountain coffees are yummy, the Double Black Diamond is my favorite.

    I find the same coffee over time can lose it's taste, so I like to mix it up. My mom swears by Maxwell House too...

    If anyone happens to be in Toronto, I recommend www.darkcitycoffee.com - it's online ordering, I get my beans delivered

    It's not much more expensive than premium beans found in the grocery store, but it's the one guilty pleasure I will never give up! Fav part of the day is that first morning coffee.

    I'm a coffee lover from way back. Exceptional coffees in my opinion are Coffee People; http://www.coffeepeople.com/default....53043274149356

    And for espresso, Allan Brothers can't be beat; www.allannbroscoffee.com

    These are both NW companies where the best roasters in the world are...
