The best cup of coffee I ever had was an Ethiopian blend in the New Delhi, India airport. It totally surprised me.  Now every morning I have two HEB (a Texas grocery store) Keurig cups - an Ethiopian Yirgaccheffe (medium roast) and a Sumatran Gayo Mountain (dark roast) to start my day.  Wonderful!!

I start my day with 8 cups of heavy black coffee. I buy Costco whole beans (top quality at half the price) and grid 10 scoops each morning. Kirkland Espresso blend roasted by Starbucks) in my new favorite but their Sumatran and Ethiopian beans are great too.

I drink one cup per day.  More, and I have trouble sleeping.  But I do enjoy that one cup!

I worry about you, GAD.  Blood pressure OK?

Excellent. I always get the “oh wow, that is really good” comment.

I buy Costco whole beans (top quality at half the price) and grid ... each morning

This.

Kirkland brand for weekdays.  Zavida brand vanilla hazelnut for weekends.  Always go-cups.

I refuse to spend $7 or more on a cuppa joe.

I make 12 cups a day at home and it costs me about $3 a week for great coffee, you can’t beat Costco on coffee. I thought about K-cups but even at a low 25cents a cup that would cost me $21 a week and they don’t taste near as good.

That and if your coffee maker bites it, you can get a new one for $20.

HA! that happened to me about 6mos ago, I got up pressed the start button and click nothing, I tried again, click nothing, panic was starting to set in, I unplugged it and plugged it back in, nothing! Garbed my keys and off to the supermarket the only thing open at 7am, and what did they have but a nice black&decker; 12cup on sale for $20, 20min later I had my coffee.
