I've gotten to where I like a really good cup of coffee.

I'm not sure when this happened to me, I've always been happy with the generic and house brands that I get at the store, but lately I've been served some blends that have really excited my palate.  Not being a coffee connoisseur, I'm not sure what wonderful blends are out there.  I do NOT like the artifiacially flavored beans.  If I want a little hazelnut or vanilla extract in my coffee, I can add it myself.
Does anyone know of some good coffees that I should put on my Christmas wish list?

I am surprised!!! I thought you were the type of person who would order coffee to go and then wander off without it going with you.
However since you do seem to be a sincre person, I will bend to your wishes (or should that be a singular word)? Don't want to get the English Grammer and Spelling Gods stired up. Anyway, The Coffee that I now buy and drink is KONA SUNRISE. It is Hawaiian. However, I haven't seen it anywhere around here. I get it in the military Comissaries. They also have a "KONA CLASSIC" that has a nice flavor.

You strike me as the kind of person who just might let someone wander off without giving them the coffee that they ordered....but you do make a good cup of coffee nonetheless.  I shall keep my eye open for KONA coffees.

I have a friend who swears by Costa Rican coffee. Hope this is helpful. And that you don't have to travel far to get it. Smiley

There's a small outfit nearby that roasts "fair trade" beans called Kicking Horse Co. My favourite medium bodied blend of theirs is Three Sisters. I might have to send you a bag of the stuff, Pru... a bit out of your way, these Rockies.
As a one-cup-a-day coffee lover, I've elevated that one cup to a high art: it's got to be freshly ground, french pressed and as strong as rocket fuel  ,-)

When I was raising the kids, I never even noticed what I was drinking.  Who cared about the taste....it was the caffeine I was after.  Now I'm like you.  I want it to be good.

I subscribe to Gevalia and get gourmet coffee sent to me. They have a big selection and special purchase offers.

It also relieves me of 1. Shopping and 2. Thinking about it.

HEY PRU!!!!!!!
Coffee. the elixer of the gods. I like 8-o'clock, Maxwell House-Pacific Blend, Dunkin-Donuts fresh ground. But the real treat is the half cup of Kahlua in it every morning. At least while I polish off the first pot. Wink

I like the Kona coffees from Hawaii.  And I like whatever brand that Olive Garden brews.  I used to use less coffee when I made it myself, but these days, I like it richer.  I don't care for flavors added after it's brewed (flavored cream or syrups), but I like several of the flavored roasts.  That said, I usually buy whatever traditional brand is on sale.

Truly Peace coffee is a good thing to buy - It is harvested from shade grown trees in areas with the environment in mind and fair trade. I recommend Kona too - It is SO good!  Of course Wolfgang Puck makes a good cup of coffee too if you don't order creme brulee to go along with it.

Then there are the coffees that Barney's Coffee and Tea Company has. Some are flavored (the best flavored ones are the ones that show up about this time of year for Christmas time), some are blends of different types of beans, some are different roasts, and are special specifically to where they're grown. Kona is just wonderful. Blue Mountain (from the Carribean, I think specifically Jamaica) is supposed to be excellent also. But Blue Mountain is a King's Ransom. I don't don't know if it's true or not, but I was in Marshall's in the last couple days and reading the back of a coffee bag that suggested that Kona and Blue Mountain are the same bean just grown in different places. Now, if you want to say they are the same bean because they're both Arabica, that's still a big territory to fill. My opinion is that both being Arabian beans as compared to Columbian beans still leaves worlds of difference between them.

I have simply got to get a coffee grinder so that I can go back to grinding beans by the pot. What ever coffee you like always tastes best ground fresh by the pot. And it's easier to chew on a bean that hasn't been ground yet. (LOL!) As for the pressed coffee that was mentioned before, I've never had pressed coffee. However, I think that I would about kill to know how to make a good cup of Espresso! I'd even settle for how to do it with a maku instead of one the expensive machines....
