    Really good coffee?

    Can any of you recommend a good flavored coffee...just coffee itself, not a flavor added. I have been using the same old national brand for years and it just does not taste good anymore. I only drink one mug of coffee a day and it should be good!
    Thanks for replies... Janice

    I felt the same way and went from Folgers to Maxwell house. I really don't like flavored coffee. Buy a couple little bags and experiment. You might surprise yourself.

    The problem here is everybody likes different kinds of coffee. My grocery stores sells coffee by the pound, so if yours does, you could just buy a small amount of several of them and find one you like. Some times I see little bags of coffee, they use ten in gift baskets. If you want really good coffee you should buy whole beans and grind just enough for your one mug.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I have a Keurig that I use during the week, on weekends we make pots of Starbucks Verona or Christmas Blend- freshly ground of course. For the Keurig, my favourite is Tully's Italian Roast- delicious coffee.

    I buy folgers and mix it half and half with fresh ground from the grocery. Just right, economical yet rich
    We also make our coffee freshdripped, by the cup, no pot coffee.

    After trying all the fancy and local coffees I find I like Maxwell House regular roast the best.

    I love Kona coffee. It is a bit more expensive coming from Hawaii but so worth it. If you only indulge once a day, the cost isn't that much.

    I also like the smaller roasteries that do small batches at a time. I love coffee and try all kinds of organic and fair trade coffee.

    IMHO, they are so much better than the more common brands and the cost is worth it.

    I use Georgia's Market Organic Crème Brulee and it's wonderful. However, I think it's only available at Georgia's Market here. When they were closed for renovations, I bought Starbucks Vanilla Something coffee at the grocery store and it was good. Eight O'clock coffee also makes some good flavored coffees

    I drink 2 cups a day and I too want it to be GOOD, I've been using Folgers Black Silk but I think they must have changed it because it just isn't as good as it was. If you find a good one let us know.

    I love strong, but good tasting, coffee and am a huge fan of Starbucks Verona. The Verona k-cups are hard to find and they don't have them at Sam's Club, so I go with Pike Place. And I love Dunkin' Donuts.
    I love the smell of Best Press in the morning!

    We have come up with our own blend of Coffees. We bought some Kona Chocolate Macadamia and thought is wasn't quite right but liked the mild smooth taste...so I started adding it to our other coffee that we didn't like too much and have experimented with it a lot...my latest blend is 1/2 and 1/2 Kona Choc. and Don Franciscos Kona. We don't like dark harsh coffee so this makes an easy to swallow one for us.

    My faves of regular coffee are 8 O'Clock. Duncan Donuts. i hate Starbucks but actually like their Blonde Roast. Gloria Jeans. Give it to me straight, hot and some bold. Tastes are all going to be varied.

    That is sort of the way I make mine, a little brew basket with coffee grounds inside,
    hanging from the top of a mug. Pour in boiling water, add the cover and let steep 7 min. I quit making by the pot when hubby lost his taste for coffee completely that last year he lived, he passed a couple years ago.

    Thanks for replies. I appreciate it. My cousin and her hubby visit me often from Dallas area, and they bring their own coffee, so maybe I should ask them what it is. They grind it themselves before they come.
    I will look at the store next time I shop and make a decision for a change. Leaning towards the grind your own, at the grocery.

    Try storing your coffee upside down so the coffee oils are always on the top. Have you ever noticed the last batch is the best. That's why.

    When we moved to another town, our regular brand didn't taste as good. Finally, we discovered it was the water, so changed brands which made coffee taste good again. Now, when I rarely drink coffee, I prefer Starbucks which I grind myself. Used to love Maxwell House Italian blend. It was strong but not harsh or bitter. My dad drank his coffee boiled in a pot and was fussy about it. Learned to love that method and used it when we camped yrs ago. I do love a strong coffee. Most of my coffee drinking friends drink colored water.

    Our favorite is Costco's Kirkland brand. I also like highlander grog, but have trouble finding it.


    Also, if you have just noticed that the coffee doesn't taste right, try cleaning your coffee pot. I've bought the coffee pot cleaners, and also just run white vinegar thru a cycle, followed by a cycle or two of just water. It can really make a difference.

    I'm not a coffee drinker but I always bring Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee from Jamaica (it's not flavored) and everyone raves about it. I suppose you can get it online, but it's probably pricey.

    My favorite coffees that you buy the beans or already dround are: Dunkin' Donuts (which I can buy at the grocery store & Costco because we do not have Dunkin' Donuts in San Diego yet), Starbucks Christmas blend and their Pike Place. I was given a Keurig coffee maker for Christmas and have been trying a lot different brands and flavors.

    When we travel and I have to make coffee I usually make it with bottled water because we have a water filtering system and some places their water is a lot different than what I am used to.

    I love flavored coffee too, but I make the regular coffee (I like Dunkin donuts or Starbucks) and add the DaVinci sugar free vanilla flavoring. I have tried the coffee that is already flavored, but it wasn't the same.

    I also love Kona coffee. We have a coffee grinder so we grind it fresh when we use it.
