        • My favorite coffee of all time is BUSTELLO DECAFFEINATED.  Great rich, full bodied and great smelling coffee as it was meant to be.  Smells like it was just picked from the Latin American coffee farms and just put through the old fashioned coffee socks that my great-grandmother used to make coffee all those many years ago. (:)

          As you can tell, I love a great cup of coffee.

        • Hi Leeann. I’m back, my husband went back to work after unloading the costco groceries. I like Illy coffee too. Rich espresso without the bitterness.

        • My favorite coffee that I love is French pressed coffee from Nobhill restaurant @ MGM in Las Vegas, It is so delicious. But my everyday coffee I get from starbucks is a nonfat latte with extra foam.

        • I love hot chocolate! So that’s my “caffeine” of choice.

          I grew up in Mass but very close to Rhode Island. I have now lived in RI for 18 years and coffee is as big here as it is in Seattle (I love Seattle!!). Our state drink is coffee milk...bottle right here in little Rhody. I always bring a bottle of it with me when I travel and give it to someone who has never had it. Funny, I don’t like coffee but grew up on coffee milk and coffee ice cream. YUM!!!

        • Mine is Tully’s Madison Blend or House Blend.  Tully’s is the perfect coffee, not too strong or too weak just right!  Plus I like the relaxed atmosphere.  I live in Tacoma which is about 45 minutes from Seattle (unless you drive like my husband)and coffee is serious business.  As I think more about it Seattle’s best is great coffee too.  It reminds me of a more homey coffee, kind of like my mother drinking folgers or maxwell house.

        • I discovered Kona Coffee in a little coffee mill house my ex mother in law always went to in S.F. she would buy the whole bean variety and grind it herself, after I move Ky. it was several years before it arrived here... I like it strong enough so that the spoon stands by itself, with a lot cream and sugar..

        • WOW! What cool answers!

          Leean, you asked what a coffe wimp is. I am. I am a relatively recent convert, (a couple of years). I am not particular like my husband who has to have the Starbuck’s French Roast, but he gets up first, so that’s what I usually drink, but with TONS of Hazelnut creamer. I use fat free, so I don’t feel too guilty. If it were up to me, I’d probably brew something Hazelnut to go with my creamer.

          You all have opened my newbie eyes. I’d like to go coffee tasting, like wine tasting! Wouldn’t that be fun?! :)

        • None of that overrated, dreaded Starbucks for me.  It just doesn’t taste like REAL coffee to me once they‘re done with it!  Designer coffee.  (No offense to you all that love the stuff).  

          My favorite coffeeS are Millstone’s Swiss Chocolate Almond (HEAVEN!);  Most Colombian coffee and Folgers’ French Roast.  If I pass a Dunkin’ Donuts, I’m also good to go!!

          Annie123, I also make Turkish and Arabic coffee.  The Arabic coffee is a lighter version of the Turkish, not as “muddy.”  Its basically “blond” coffee brewed the same way, but DROWNED in the glorious cardamom!!

        • Just logged on, after my 2 cups of coffee.
          Leeann - try Whole Foods Market or any health food market for the Blue Mountain

          Dailyblonde - Coffee milk sounds good! If you want a good hot chocolate, take 3 ounces of any good quality eating chocolate you like, I actually like to mix milk and dark together. Chop it up into little pieces. Heat a cup of milk, soy milk, skim milk or even water and when it’s near boiling, dump your chocolate into it and whisk it until smooth. If you like spice you can add a pinch of chili like ground chipotle or cayenne to it. Delicious

          Butterscotch - I used to live in Sequim - the lavender capitol of the U.S.! I love Tully’s coffee. Their building is a landmark off the freeway.

          Lilli - we have 100% Kona here at our costco. I like it, too!

          Enjoy!

        • Hello everyone I’m new so I’ll just jump in. I just came back from Puerto Rico and I love my Cafe Bustelo among other Latin American coffees. I think I’ll make some right now. I too have the sock my mom gave me and I bought a cafetera (coffee pot for the stove). Great Topic!

        • Annie, kanafeh, baklawa, and all their sweet cohorts are the ENEMY!  I usually do serve baklawa with the Turkish coffee, but the Arabic coffee is a treat unto itself!  The last time I had kanafeh was 10 days ago.  It’s Ramadan, you know, so I let myself “afford” it.  Don’t tell me you can’t make it yourself.  Or are you like me, and KNOW how to make it, but pretend not to so the hubby doesn’t ask for it, thereby, letting it taunt you MERCILESSLY?

        • I am lovingly known as the “coffee snob” around my friends. I love a good cup of fresh ground, Starbucks beans. I also grind the beans fresh everyday! Is there any other way??? If I go to Starbucks, I always have a Peppermint Mocha! I love coffee and I love coffee cups! When we lived in Idaho, there were Moxie Javas everywhere like there are Starbucks.

        • Did someone say “Chock Full o‘Nuts?” I haven’t heard the name of that coffee in years. I used to buy it all time, before Starbucks and all the designer coffee houses came around. It was pretty good, if I remember. Wonder if it’s still available.

          Good eyes on seeing it on the shelf in Seinfeld!
