My preference is Kirkland signature brand coloumbia supremo bean coffee from Cosco; comes in a 3lb. can. Very bitter taste at first try,several experimental pots later, I found out I was using too much. Now after several dozen cans, over a few years, I always get a good cup of coffee as needed.

I always buy Kroger's Spotlight brand. The whole beans when they got'em (it also comes ground). According to a kroger warehouse guy I knew, the Spotlight brand has a decent percentage of Arabica beans. It does taste good and at 6 bucks and change for a 39oz bag it's a decent deal.

Red package Eight O'clock used ot be a favorite, but there is no longer an A&P near me. Chock Full o' Nuts columbian or New York is the standard at home now. For Christmas my wife and I put packages of Dunkin' Donuts coffee in each other stockings, then the first one up makes the coffee. When we have to do a quick pickup at CVS it's Maxwell House, but it's not my choice brand.

Costco here in Austin sells several varieties of beans under the Seattle Mountain brand name. I like the Columbian, Sumatra, Costa Rican and as a change I also like Community coffee. There used to be a brand called 8 o'clock but I can't find it any more.

Dunkin for us. We buy the 5lb bags (whole bean) that the franchise locations use direct from Dunkin. Grind fresh as we go. The 1lb bags they sell are not the same bean or roast. Go through a silver 5lb bag every 4 weeks.

My coffee choice is a bit unusual -- I buy Lutheran World Relief Fair Trade Coffee from my church. The money goes to a great cause (sustainable farming), and you have a variety of selections (both whole bean and ground). The Organic Ethiopian coffee tastes like a slightly less bitter form of Starbucks Breakfast Blend. If you can find this coffee, I recommend it. You can also get a variety of tea and instant cocoa.

For an interesting take on Starbuck's, have a look at this old article:
http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/e/a/1999/08/01/MAGAZINE13027.dtl&hw=Laura+Fraser&sn=008&sc=727
(Note that I am NOT a Starbuck's fan, I am a Peet's fan. This article only tells part of the story, but
the origins of Starbuck's are not with Howard Schultz, as he would generally have you believe, they were in fact originally started by the current Director (formerly Owner) of Peet's. It's truly a long and not-always-so-nice story.)

I don't mean to be a propagandist or anything... my answer I guess ought to be that when I drink it it's usually Peet's (for me coffee is a treat, I used to be addicted and had a lot of pain in withdrawal... seriously).

Newhall Coffee Roasting Co., Newhall Blend, a medium dark roast.
This is a Southern California firm that micro-roasts in small batches. Once you've had their product, you won't look at Peet's.

Folgers first choice, then Maxwell House French Roast

Loved Louisianne but can't seem to find it any more in the supermarkets. Fell in love with it a long time ago when visiting New Orleans and used it faithfully but it seems to have dropped off the edge of the world up here in the midwest.

Can't stand Starbuck's.

It's really -- and I mean REALLY -- easy to roast your own. Fun, not expensive (in fact, cheaper usually) and really educational. The FreshRoast roaster is available at many places online for under $100, and unroasted beans are available many places online (my favorite is Sweet Maria's (www.sweetmaria.com).

It seems inconvenient to roast your own coffee. And it is, a little. But not much. And once you've had really fresh coffee that's roasted properly, you'll never want to go back.

I have no financial interest in FreshRoast or Sweet Maria's.

I grew up on Dunkin Donuts coffee it was the best. Moved to the West coast Bellingham WA in 1999. First sip of starsucks literly broke my addiction. Fortunately Canada Tim Horton's right across tho border. Life love and work brought me to China. I have 3 choices starsucks 2 hours away 3-1 instant everythings in a packet milk sugar maybe a coffee bean in it not sure.Learned to bring mass quanities of coffee each trip to US customs love me.
Got back US October 2007 wen't to the grass-roots of my childhood CT and DD. What crap they serve now bought bags and bags as gifts for friends in the NW and for China not one person liked it sadly i didn't know how bad it was till i was back in China.
What's in my cup did bring 2 large Folgers French Roast which i keep perking draining straining trying to re-roast it dry it and re-use it or 3-1. My e-mails to DD (anger) were replied to with a thank you for your faithful loyalty to DD in appreciation here are $1 off coupons and buy 5 bagels get a 6 th free.

I buy whole bean coffee mail order from a place called Baronet's in Hartford, CT. Been in business since the 30s. Super high quality fresh roasted. The have a wide variety of Central & So. America, African, Pacific and others including rare coffees. Their prices for 1 lb bag is often less than the 10 and 12 oz bags all the others sell, including Starbucks, Green Mountain, etc. Plus I think Baronet's is fresher and of higher quality.

On the East Coast, you can't beat this old favorite - Martinson. Deep rich flavor, not at all bitter, brews a wonderful cup. Drink it black or with cream, it always satisfies. This brand has been around since the late 1800's for a reason - it's damn good.

Martinson's is now owned by Canadian firm Mother Parker's Tea & Coffee Inc. The Martinson's brand was bought and sold a number of times. I have to take a look and see if that coffee roasting plant just off Route 46 is Palisades Park, NJ is still operational. You could always smell coffee passing through there. You can get Martinson's coffee in NY/NJ supermarket chains such as ShopRite.

Eight O' Clock makes some reasonably priced whole bean flavored coffees. With recent price increases, I've downshifted to the local blend in the S-central US--Cains, pre-ground. It's not too awful if you keep it in the freezer after opening it.
Cafe du Monde once in a while makes a nice break from "standard" coffee. Vietnamese markets often sell it for less than other grocery stores.

Whole Foods Organic Pacific Rim Blend--whole beans that I grind just before drip-brewing it. Strong, dark, rich, with a slight "chocolatey" finish. My favorite, by far.

Currently, we're drinking a breakfast blend from a vendor of fair trade / certified organic coffee. We've been going this route for a year now. The coffee is exceptionally good, and more money goes to the actual coffee grower instead of the corporation.

I don't think anyone from a coffee company is going to post the straight scoop here. I do remember that when the Hoboken, NJ plant of Maxwell House was supplying this area back in the day, my mother noticed (negative) product changes at a time when there was a steep runup of coffee prices. I passed the old Martinson's plant in Palisades Park, NJ the other day. The Savarin sign is still on the building, but the space is occupied by warehouses and other types of businesses. People's tastes and pocket books also change. Honestly, I don't have any long term memory of the taste of a particular coffee.

Hey Lee, just a side note, I've had Gevalia coffee several times (I order it when I need a new pot, then discontinue it), and it's not bad - but the Martinson is equally as good a cup, and much less expensive. In fact, it regularly goes on sale at Shop Rite and some other local markets for as little as $1.99 per can, if you belong to their 'valued shopper' program

I remember all 3 of the A & P brands. I didn't drink coffee in my youth but I could have stood next to the grinding machine all day, it smelled so good.

I mentioned that I roast my own beans with Ethiopian Yirga Cheffe or Harrar my favorite beans but I got a great deal for my work coffee. Senseo has/had a great deal offering a machine, 18 pods, a container and a bunch of coupons all for the $15 shipping and handling charge. I believe the web link is/was www.sharesenseo.com The coffee that came with is excellent imho and I'm pretty fussy. So far I found the best deal on pods at Amazon.com but I'm still searching. Delivered, they come out to 29 cents a cup which seems very reasonable for a great cup that even has a crema on top.
