What are your favorite brands, types, roasts, additives, etc ?

I prefer a light roast in the morning then switch over to darker roasts
during the rest of the day. No favorite brands for me.

I am retired, so I only have 5 to 7 cups a day, hot and black.
Before retiring it would average 10 cups a day.

I like using a press, but have found the Keurig to be useful.

Most any kind of "Donut Shop" or "Breakfast Blend" is my personal preference.

Add Stevia and some type of cream (prefer 1/2 n 1/2, evaporated milk good too). All preppable. I'd save up as much "good stuff" as I could manage, then go instant for the long haul.

My favorite is Brazilian coffee, but bought in Brazil. I tried buying imported Santos a couple times and was dissappointed by it.

They make it with hot milk for breakfast down there and it is heaven!

Nowadays I trade off between Italian espresso "Medaglio D'oro" or just regular columbian coffee .

Usually drink it black, but sometimes will put a little milk in it.


Bought a fancy cappucino machine a year ago and that makes a great cappucino or latte with the Medaglio d'oro.

Most mornings it's Folgers, although McCafe is growing on me. I like either with a little sugar and a little evap milk. 4-6 cups made in a $store auto drip pot.
Around this time of evening I make a few cups in a french press. I'm having a Starbucks Blond Roast right now, I didn't buy it, a guest left it. Occasionally, I put in a little vanilla, chocolate or cinnamon in the evening cup.
On weekends we change it up and boy are we fans of French Market! Hubby drinks his straight up, I prefer mine with scalded milk and a little sugar. No sugar if there is something sweet on the table for breakfast.
When I need something high-test I reach for the bag of Death Wish Coffee and I make that in the press because I am afraid it would disintegrate the $ store pot LOL
When it comes to coffee, I can drink just damn near anything. Dad used to make a pot in the morning and let it set on the stove all day, heating it up before he poured a cup. If I am camped with the Natives we just boil whatever was cheap until a spoon stands up and call it good. If someone shows up with a can of eagle brand everyone is their friend

I roast my own. Fresh roasted is the only way to go for me. Been doing it for 15 years.

Current favorite is Kroger's store brand breakfast blend. There are a couple locally owned coffee shops near me one of which is locally roasted Brazilian coffee. The owner is a former coworker of mine. She's Brazilian and her family is very big in the coffee business down there. So she and her husband not only serve it in their coffee shop they have made a good business importing the beans and reselling them. And yes, prior to their business taking off he was a rocket engineer with Orbital.

I loathe Starbuck's coffee. Utter rubbish. The one thing I have learned is the roasting process they use in Europe is different than in the US. It's not burnt and bitter.

Circle K coffee is fine by me as is Dunkin.

Truth be told, I haven't had what I consider to be decent coffee since I was last in Europe or working in Bahrain.

I'll gladly get the Great Value brand Donut Shop coffee at Wal-Mart. I think the 12-ounce bag of grounds is four dollars, with the thirty-six-ounce bag of grounds being around nine bucks. I'm also a fan of Folger's 1850 Pioneer Blend. The 12-ounce bag of that usually around seven dollars, but I've seen it on sale for six.

I'm not really too picky, but when I prefer to do something on the higher end, I'll roll with whatever Black Rifle Coffee Company is serving. They routinely do sales events where percentages or portions of purchases are donated to veteran charities, as well as police. The company is veteran-owned and operated.

Folgers trash coffee normally, just don't want to hassle with anything more than hot water, dump it in, when I get up. I need(?) my drug of choice right away to kick start my brain into gear.

Now if you're talking about good stuff, well, back when my wife was involved in some sort of coffee club thing, we could get vacuum packed bricks of coffee from all over the world, if we wanted to pay the price. The best was Ethiopian, fantastic stuff straight black, a floral taste, with a good kick. The Kenyan should have been a controlled substance, but if you wanted to chop wood until you had a heart attack, or have a machete party with the neighbors, it was the way to go. Talk about getting fired up, oh, it also was the definitive cure for constipation.

French press, boiling water from tea kettle, Starbucks pikes peak or Tim Hortons.

Mix it up with Texas Pecan or Houston Blend from HEB (BEST GROCERY STORE IN THE WORLD)

I spent a week in the Goha Hotel on a hill above Gondar, Ethiopia. The coffee was wonderful but slow in coming. I like frequent refills and that just doesn't work in Ethiopia. I think they brew it one cup at a time and the cups are demitasse.

I did bring some Ethiopian coffee beans home with me.

Russia also is another hard place to have coffee with breakfast. If I ever go abroad again I will take an adequate supply of Folgers coffee bags and just ask for hot water.

Butter coffee made with Maxwell House French Roast and Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter. Whip it up using a milk frother, like the one in Steverino's images above. Smooth as silk.

Butter coffee is also called Bulletproof coffee.

Lately I have been using the Stanley stainless steel camping French press at home. Allows me to bring the coffee to a boil on the stove and remove all the carbon dioxide and foam, before pressing the coffee. I use espresso ground coffee like LavAzza, so the grounds run right through the screen of the French press. So let it stand and the grounds settle out for a few minutes after boiling. Also found the very fine grounds pack into sludge at the bottom of my cup. Never really notice any of the grounds while drinking, until the last sip.

Not many folks know about French market , you must have spent some time in Louisiana lol. Every now and then I'll get some Cafe Du Monde shipped to me from a relative.

Over 4 cups a day of french press coffee can increase ldl cholesterol.
Around here most use k cup pods nowadays. I don't drink coffee often anymore. Though when i do its usually a 30 ounce iced coffee or 20 ounce hot coffee in an insulated mug. Don't notice much of an effect.

Been buying 2lb organic bean coffee from BJ's wholesale club. (like Sam's Club)
Just bought a 6 months supply. If shtf I don't want to be caught without coffee.
Also have a lot of freeze dried instant coffee from "Franklin's Finest". It's good for instant coffee. We don't drink it regularly. It's a long term set aside prep.

I pull a shot of the Cottonwood and add 15 seconds of hot water for an Americano. I usually drink two in the morning.

I also will drink a shot after dinner with some desert.

I drink Turkish Coffee every now and then. It's a PIA to grind by hand but worth it.

I'm kinda of a coffee snob.

Original Chock full o' Nuts Coffee is my coffee of choice. I only drink 1 or 2 cups a day. I never drink any coffee after 11 am.

I am looking at storing instant coffee long term. Any suggestions?
