I've been buying the Papa Nicholas brand beans, assorted flavors, and sometimes I make Greek coffee in the morning.

The cheapest coffee we can find,  whatever's on sale, augmented by a coupon.  We don't care about taste, texture, aroma...we just want to wake up.   Cuisinart coffee maker.  [it was a gift, and we have used wonderful beans with it...we're not impressed].

Coffee is one of the greatest pleasures of our life.  Hubby is not allowed to buy coffee.  I can always tell if he sneaks in the Fbrand or the chocfulonuts garbage.

Anathema be upon me, but I drink american coffee made in an automatic drip machine.  3 cups, almost half milk.  I need lots of liquid in the morning.  I need to sit for a long time to allow myself to wake up.

Cheap, black, coffee. I can enjoy a rare treat of fresh beans and a french press, but for the most part it just needs to be strong and black.

Recently splurged for a Keurig.  Love it.  Trying different brands of the bold variety.  No cream or sugar needed.

 

I was talking to my sister about the Keurig, and she told me that she had one that she no longer used in the basement.  Didn't like disposing the individual containers.  She is apparently a bit more of an environmentalist than I am.  She gave it to me, so now I have one at the office, too!

I'm not much for coffee, I'm afraid.  Every now and then I'll splurge and get a caramel latte but in the morning I really like my tea.  Earl grey, black and strong. 

OK ... where am I going?.. and WHY am I in this handbasket??

Coffe, like anything else,  is only pleasurable if one cares.  We don't care.  Even if I cared, HubbyDearest does not.  Look on the bright side,  the likelihood of you ever being insulted by "inferior" coffee in my home is slim.  So to each his own.

Truth be told we keep the good stuff for the weekends and special occassions (friends, etc). During the week though the cost of coffee was (good stuff like Peets or Blue Bottle etc) was eating so much into our budget that we decided to only use it for special times. For every morning we use ok quality coffee in large tin cans. Probably makes you cringe but you know what we had to make some cuts and that was one area we were spending entirely too much on.

 

AmazingGrace I hear where you coming from. Koukouvagia I love great tasting coffee and I total hear what your saying but for us we keep it for good friends and good times not every morning. If I made more money and it was an issue I would buy bags of blue bottle, intelgentsia and peets and enjoy it multiple times a day.

guatemalan sunrise is my brand...extra spoonful for me!..black as a bahamian moonless night...just a cup or two will do... use some random drip maker now as our water is soooo harsh with minerals here they get ruined early out ...and yes i've tried all the vinegar solutions...just not good for the long haul...so now i just buy cheapys and replace them every 6 months...other than breakfast i only drink tea, & lots and lots of water... well of course besides cocktails of course...no sodas, no beer..once in a blue moon will have a double espresso for lunch, but those are dangerous..had an espresso machine at my last restaurant that was dangerous always being at my disposable...kinda glad when it broke.....bloody mary's are really my weakness...god, just the name makes me want to have one...a meal in a glass...asparagus, shrimp, pickled green beans, spice..whatever you fancy...sorry, guess you're really asking about coffee, so let's just stick to the guatemalan sunrise...straight...

No worries, there's no judgement on my part, remember I'm the one who loves instant mashed potatoes.  The truth is that good coffee can be very expensive indeed.  I don't waste any money on starbucks or dunkin donuts.  And since we've both cut way down on caffeine we each only drink one cup in the morning and that's it for the day.  Cafe du monde is not spectacularly expensive, it's about $7 for a 1lb can that's filled to the brim.  Cheaper if we get it in chinatown.  It lasts us quite a while though since we only make enough for 2 cups.

 

Not too long ago in an attempt to save us even more money hubby bought us one of those huge cans of Kirklands coffee from Costco.  I hated it, every cup of it and it went on for 2 months.  Never again.  I don't want to be a snob about it but I gotta enjoy my one cup of coffee.

Yeah that's my gripe.  I toss my grounds in the compost heap.  But it's SO quick and fast and every cup is the first cup.

I have been searching, searching, searching, AND searching for the good, hearty, fragrent coffee bean that I can so vividly remember from my "growing-up" years. But to no avail ! So, instead of coffee have been drinking Green Tea with honey. (But not satisfying for getting the day started.)

 

Now I think that maybe I have found my coffee......Gevalia's Traditional Roast. We bought the whole bean and did the grinding ourselves......and was I ever surprised !!! It is just what I was looking for !!!

 

They offer a variety of roasts, so for my next shipment I ordered the French Roast. I intend trying them all. Hubby and I had been trying all of the different commercial brands on the grocer's shelves.

 

Now no more disappionting weak, off flavor, dishwater at my house !

Scottish Blend Tea, PG Tips Tea, Good Earth Green Tea, Cafe Du Monde Coffee (Chickory coffee) when available.
