I love the Costco blends, but I have recently come to love the New England Coffee Co. blends (macadamia nut is the best, I think). Looks like the company is based in Massachusetts, and Stop and Shop sells it all over (of course) New England: Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, etc.

Anybody else try this brand? The beans make a rich coffee, without any bitterness like you sometimes get in other strongly flavored blends.

Fresh coffee works for me. I add a little flavored coffee to a regular blend. Just to give it a little hint of another flavor. Yes, my kids like coffee, with lots of cream or milk.

Funny,sometimes taste change...as a kid it was always milk and two or three sugars...but for 40 years it's been black, and lately ,one splenda...I wouldn't think of hiding the taste of a premium blend (my Gevalia) with milk!!!!

Probably not a very exciting choice but Folgers has a new "Brazilian blend" that I've been enjoying lately.

Lately, when I have the time to make French press coffee, I use Illy Cafe espresso that i grind myself.
But, on most weekday mornings when I'm in a rush, I'll use my Lavazza Point cartridge espresso machine. Just push one button and, voila! I have a delicious cup of espresso in seconds.

I actually discontinued drinking coffee, spent too much money on teeth whitening products. I made a switch over to this new shot called Euphorix: www.euphorixusa.com

They're actually based out of NJ @leethebard!

Mostly I use coffee from Monmouth Coffee in London, UK, but that's because either I or my brother is making the trip about once a month.
 
If I need to pinch hit from the store, Peet's Coffee Major Dickason's Blend.

Haven't used branded coffee in years. We purchase green beans online (Burmans) roast 2 or 3 days worth at a time and grind every morning in a burr grinder. As another former californian I will say Peets is very good. I will only drink StarBUCKS in an airport if there is no other recourse.

It does depend on what is on sale at the store. My oldest daughter insists on grinding the beans fresh(since she was a teen no less, she's now 24). She actually has been drinking coffee since she was 2. One of my most embarrassing moments was in a local convenience store. Two elderly women were at the check out when my little 3 year old Katie said in her very loud 3 year old voice "help me to get my coffee Mommy!" Those two old ladies looked at me like I was a criminal! Oh, well. She's taller than me so there goes that theory!  So I buy only whole bean. Sometimes Dunkin Donuts or Peet's or Gevalia or Starbucks. Sometimes I do buy coffee beans at Fairway Market or Fresh Market. They both have quite varied choices from all over the world. Consequently, I usually don't get coffee when I eat out. Nothing is quite as good as the coffee my daughter makes each morning before work! A talent, I guess!

We tend to buy whole beans and grind right before brewing, and purchase either Wegman's Espresso, Peets French Roast, Dunkin Donuts, or a dark roast Starbucks.
 
We used to really enjoy Kirkland/Starbucks when we were Costco members.

Community Coffee when I can get it, Eight O'Clock, though I miss the more exotic brands, like Bokar, or Luzianne. I like chicory

I just recently bought a 4 cup Mr. Coffee for personal use. Everyone in the house gets up much early than me plus they put the coffee and water in the night before and use the auto timer. By the time I get to the coffee it's sludge.
So I've been trying a new brand almost every week, usually Publix has one of the fancier brands on sale each week so I give that a try, So far tried New England, Dunkin Donuts, 8 oclock, Chock full of nuts, Gevalia and Folgers Gourmet plus a few others I'm forgetting. Still waiting to try Seattles Best, Newmans, Peets and few others. So far I like regular Chock full of nuts pretty well.

I have been a lifelong coffee drinker and buy the beans to grind just before making.
Other day I picked up a bag and it didn't feel right. On looking closer at the bag, not only
Had the amount of coffee gone down, the price had gone up !
It also didn't taste as good, I don't know if the taste had changed, or my elderly
Grumble was on high !

Just now trying Seattle's Best level 4 which is described as being medium dark and rich. Had to cut back a little on the amount I used in my little 4 cup Mr. Coffee compared to some other brands but after that adjustment I'm enjoying it.

These days we use the Nespresso maker and coffee pods. Expensive, but a good variety of delicious coffees and convenient.

hey buba, I will look for that based on your recommendation. Don't know whether it makes it this far South. I try to drink Noble, Noble Coffee Roasting | Ashland Oregon
which roasts here in Ashlandia, and drink Buckmaster black satin for my everyday coffee.  :)

We've been longtime subscribers to Gevalia's home delivery and we've just never been disappointed by their various roasts. Doubt we'll change anytime soon.

Master Chef, $5.28 per 33 oz can. A Walmart brand.  
 
For years we (wife & I) used Maxwell House.  Then changed to Folders dark roast.   ... About 2 years ago now when coffee prices were going through the roof, I saw a lady load her cart with 6 or 8 cans of Master Chef from the store shelf.   ... Folders was in short supply, so we tried the Master Chef and been drinking it since.

My fav New Orleans brand - Cafe du Monde. (coffee with chicory) 
 
While I love love love Whole Foods, you get ripped off there trying to buy coffee.  Cafe du Monde goes for $10/can.
Online you can get it for about $6.25.
An Asian grocer near me sells it for $4.25.  Same.  Exact.  Can.
 
Pays to shop around.

Oh good to know, I'll have to take a little look-see.
 
My understanding is the whole New Orleans coffee+chicory thing started in the civil war when supplies of just about everything ran lean.  Some enterprising bright soul knew roasted chicory had a very coffee like flavor and used it to extend what limited supplies thay had.  As the war, and the years slid by, and even post war supplies were lean, people just got used to the flavor.  Then not only got used to it, desired it, never went back.
