Who drinks it? What's your favorite?

I like Folgers, Chase and Sanborn, Dunkin Donuts, and Starbucks.

The only coffee I ever drink with any real regularity is Dunkin Donuts' Ice coffee. My girlfriend always gets them so I like to have a few sips and then I'm over it. As for hot coffee, I actually like good ol' McDonalds - Lots of cream, lots of sugar...

I don't drink it very often though, I prefer green tea for its neutral taste and health benefits.

I'm a coffee snob. I grind from beans (old school hand crank burr grinder) every pot and use a manual drip or french press method.

My favorite beans are Millstone Columbian, but I frequently get Caribou beans. I'm a med to dark roast kind of guy and I prefer Caribou over Starbucks but rarely get coffee out.

On Saturday mornings it's usually a stop at McD's before playing. I find their coffee acceptable when eating a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit with hash browns before a round, or the morning after a party.

I blast one of these worth every workday on the way to work, black. I don't love coffee but I'm feel obligated to drink it for the safety of other motorists. At work I generally drink only water and green tea.

PSA- if you like nice mugs get the mug linked to above, it's real nice.

I get up around 6 most mornings, my wife isn't usually up for another hour or so after that. We picked up one of these thermos french presses, and the pot I make at quarter after 6 is still piping hot an hour later, which makes her a little less angry at the world for having to be up.

I drink coffee daily, almost always black unless it's really bad coffee and I need to disguise the taste. Mostly just drink the free stuff at work, which is surprisingly good (Seattle area businesses are good about that kind of thing, I've found). At home, I mostly have been using the french press lately, with whatever good dark roast beans I find on sale. I need to get a new press though, as the one I have now is not only tiny, but also lets a lot of grounds through. That one you linked to looks pretty sweet, chiggins, and not too expensive as far as french presses go. Anybody tried the Aeropress? I might be willing to get one if it is indeed as good/better than a french press.

The primary reason we got it was because we'd just broken our third carafe, and I think it was going to be almost as much to replace it (again) as it was to get the steel one. The thermal part was kind of a bonus :)

I use a moka pot every morning for my daily cup before work... and that's all I need for the day.
It makes two shots of concentrated coffee (not quite espresso-but close enough) and I mix that with hot water to fill up my mug - that's called an Americano. Sometimes I order a tall americano from that one place.

i dont drink coffee anymore but when i did it was Kona coffee from Kona, Hawaii all the way, best coffee ever made in the entire universe!

so whoever has not had this coffee, you are missing out and no other coffee is as good as this, and i know this!

so yeah, fly your butts out to Kona Hawaii and get yourself a bag!

BTW, i used to take my coffee like i take my women, lots of cream and lots of sugar. with Kona, it was black.

I have a pot a day habit. Black, sugar, cream, milk, doesn't matter too me. If it's good coffee it's good no matter how I drink it.

I got a coffee pot with a built in grinder as a wedding present (my wife doesn't partake) and it's still rocking after 4yrs of continual use. Always whole beans, brand changes depending on what packaging catches my eye and which one has the most well written description.

I must admit, I am intrigue by the French press, but have never used one. Someone care to enlighten me? Benefits? Drawbacks?

Cuisinart? I've had mine for 5 years now and its still going strong. I had to order a new carafe as the handle broke off the original, but otherwise its been great.

I have a French Press that I take camping, but it does not produce as smooth of a texture and you get more grit in it. It is nice because it only requires boiling water to make good coffee anywhere, anytime.

I also have a vacuum pump pot, and it is best out of this. It keeps it from getting bitter and produces some delicious froth when you pump it into your cup. I buy special coffee from time to time and enjoy it, but for my money 8'oclock colombian beans are darn good. Oh yeah, and I only drink it black.
