Coffee - What is your favorite?

I couldn't find a previous thread so I started one.

I am actually looking for a new, high quality source.

My wife and I have been drinking Gloria Jeans coffee ( regular hazelnut is our favorite and others) for 30+ years. Due to a recent management change, they eliminated a special bulk purchase that they offered for years...so I am in search of a new source......(besides, their customer no-service dept. is inept).

During the years we have tried many other brands (Door County, Berres Brothers, Dunkin Donuts, Gevalia, Starbucks and many others) but have yet to find a Hazelnut flavored coffee that is equal to Gloria Jeans....although Gevalia comes in at a close second choice.

We do enjoy some non-flavored coffee as well (Starbucks, etc) but prefer top quality flavored coffees.

So....what are are your favorites?

They have the Douwe Egberts concentrate in one of my work's other offices.  I'll drink it for the caffeine, but the taste is ok at best in my opinion.  It comes in about a 1 gallon container frozen.  You thaw it before you put it in the machine, and the machine does the work mixing it with the hot water.

Few years back I had some at a Casino east of Hayward during breakfast that was amazing. It was so good it was almost like a breakfast in every cup. Found out later it was some sort of consentrate.

Here's one I found recently in the grocery store that I like, and it's made locally in Sheboygan.

Torke Coffee

Wasn't there someone on here that was talking about mixing a dark and a light coffee?  They sell one like that.

I've found it at the Pick and Saves in the Madison area, I'm sure they sell it elsewhere, and it looks like you can order it online from their website as well.

The best coffee I've had so far is Jamaican Blue Mountain, whole bean.  Dark Roast.  Kind of pricey to get around here, but if you take a vacation there you can get it reasonably on the way back home.  My daily grind is Kona Dark Roast whole bean.  Usually prefer it black, however a bit of creme is okay too.  Here's a tip - if you go to Canadia ('eh?) and ask for regular coffee (thinking you'll just get black coffee) you'll get it loaded with creme and sugar.  Blech!  LOL

We have Caribou at work and it's pretty good.  I drink about 3 cups a day black.  At home I use a French Press thanks to a suggestion from a few people.  French press makes your coffee taste/feel 10x better imo.  You just heat up  a few cups of water in a tea kettle or the microwave, throw in some grounds and stir them, wait 4 minutes and press the grounds down.  I prefer freshly ground beans from a local roaster, but typically just go with either Folgers or Dunkin because of price.

I've gone minimalist.  I buy the Hills Bros 2# beans at Woodmans for $10.49.  Good quality, several varieties, can't beat the price.

I do pour-overs - better coffee, only as much as I want, just as quick, no clean up.  Heat 2 cups of water in glass measuring cup for 3 minutes in microwave, grind coffee and prepare pour over in the meantime.  Superior coffee about 3 minutes later.  Do the procedure 2X when filling a thermos.

Melitta pour-over cone

If you have ever seen the inside of a coffeemaker, where it is wet & warm every day, you might just agree that pour-overs make sense from the sanitary point of view alone.  My wife and I prefer different roast levels, so this was our solution.  K-cups and the machine are just a successful marketing ploy.

Black, occasionally adulterate with a bit of cream.

If you go to a roaster, and they carry "Tanzanian Peaberry", try it...gooooood stuff. (And if you're unaware, "peaberry" is not a flavor, it's the way the bean develops/grows).
