Let's talk coffee. I use a Keurig machine and usually have a cup in the morning to start the day. Once in a great while I may hang on and sip a second cup on a cold rainy/snowy morning. Since I retired recently that's an option for me. I got bored with my usual Folgers Classic K cup and have been searching for that cup that really stands out from the norm. I like a medium - dark roast and drink it straight black with no add ons. I like the taste of coffee and want my cup to taste like coffee, not some coffee based drink. What coffee gets ya'll going in the morning? I may try it in my journey to find the perfect cup.

Kirkland brand Columbian beans - fresh ground to a medium-fine size.
Did Keurig for a long time with K-cups, same coffee as above.
But prefer it fresh ground using a pour over filter.
Also like Folgers Black silk, for a change up.
I'm good for 3 or 4 cups a day, all before 3PM.

Tried it this morning, not bad at all. This morning is a coffee sipping morning, pouring down rain, falling temperatures, gusty winds. I have a pot of venison chili simmering and on my second cup of coffee. Life is good... smile

GC, thought you'd like Folgers Black Silk.

I grind about three times the amount I need and put the excess in a sealed glass jar.
That jar gets an ongoing mix of Black Silk and Kirkland Columbian and I like that mix also.
Only need to grind beans every third day, doing it that way.

Congrats GC! Sipping coffee and smelling the chili simmer on a drizzly morning don't sound too bad at all.

We - the Wife, Daughter and I, recently switched from years of running a Keurig back to an old fashioned drip machine. Well, it's a new fangled machine, but it brews by the old drip method. None of us want to go back to the Keurig.

We're pretty plain on our daily coffee though. Mostly Kirkland Columbian. Every once in awhile we'll spring for a bag of something else more expensive, Black Rifle most often. And it's good. But not good enough to justify the price difference day in, day out.

I too have kicked the "K" habit... I use a drip machine with Community Breakfast Blend for my addiction to coffee. I drink at least 1 pot at home and continue the pot at work (the trusted and true Stanley Thermos - green). I work with a bunch of "wimmen" and need a boost of some sort - too much drama for a old dried up brain dead coot. Coffee is important!

Now that I have more time in the mornings I may take a look at a different brewing set up. That's a second mention of Kirkland, I'll have to look them up.

I like to put a pat of butter in mine. Really mellows it out.

Coffee and water is all I drink. I donít really care what brand it is as long as it is strong, unlike most you buy in a gas station that you can see the bottom of the cup almost like a hot tea. I drink it all day and if I donít have coffee by noon I start getting a caffeine headache, lol.

My son in law and I stopped at a place where they had a coffee shop. I had a dark roast straight black and the girl said, "What do you want in it?" I said... coffee, nothing else. It messed her all up, she couldn't wrap her head around it. The drink my SiL came away with was anything but coffee. It had coffee in it and about four other things dumped in there and stirred around. That isn't coffee!

Much the same. Except I quit drinking coffee after lunch, else I have trouble falling asleep. But that's all I drink up till after lunch.

And besides coffee and water I also drink whiskey and very occasionally a Mexican Coke or a sweet tea.

But the coffee I make at home, my wife and daughter will pour it out and make another pot rather than drink it, as strong as I make it. One of the things I really like about the drip machine vs the Keurig. Easier to get the proof up to where I like it.

I'm a coffee junkie. I drink coffee all day long. Not a large quantity as I am more of a sipper than a gulper but usually a pot a day. Folgers in either Classic, 100% Colombian or Black Silk are my favorites. I don't ever buy off brands just because its cheaper.

Never heard of putting butter in the coffee. The Pres. at the gun club puts a little salt in the coffee when we have board meetings. He thinks it takes the bitter out. I think it tastes like crap when he does it. I like strong coffee and salt doesn't seem to help. At least to me.

Black Silk for a long time, then switched to Hill Brothers Columbian. Now on a kick of Cameronís Jamaican Blend. Tried some Community Coffee, it was ok.

Whatís up with those against the K cup? Never had one but thought about getting one and use the reusable cup. Like this evening I would like one big cup with a splash of bourbon or Irish whiskey.
Then there are times I just want a quick cup in my togo mug and hit the road.

I am like others I want coffee and nothing else. If the spoon donít stand up in it, about to weak.
Guys at work make tinted water. Ya could drop a coin in it and read the date.

I was at my daughter's and she is a K coffee fan but balks at the price so she has refillable cups, they're nice but a pain to clean, heck I have at least four case trimmers because I hate to even adjust them. I found a #6 Malita pour over cone and make liter at a time, just lift the cone filter out and toss. I can use any beans and heat water in a electric kettle at home or in a pot on the camp.stove. sometimes I add a scoop of French vanilla grounds to the regular one I use or a dash of cinnamon.

Back in the old days when we boiled coffee in a gallon pot in deer camp we'd add a half dozen eggs.to the pot, when breakfast was done we had a hardboiled egg for lunch out in the bush.

My old trapping partner had one of the gallon pots that he left on the stove and added more coffee and water with a.spoonful of anise seeds untill the pot was full of grounds. If you weren't there when he started a new pot his coffee.would.peel you enamel off.

Now day I have to quit drinking high-test at noon and switch to decaf.

When I lived in northern Minn..they referred to coffee as "Norwegian Gasoline".

When I drove truck many of the truck stops had free coffee if you bought one of their mugs. I had a half-dozen mugs floating around the cab
