I'm partial to Community Coffee Cafe Special (medium dark roast).
I agree. Even the best coffee needs a spot of good cream to release all the flavors.Oh yeah, the OP said that good coffee does not need to tainted by sugar and cream. He's wrong. It does need to be tainted. Thank you B&B for allowing me to express my opinion as if it were fact.
Winner Winner right there. I love that stuff. Got hooked on it when my grandma lived in Puerto Rico. I can't find it locally where I live though. I also like Cafe Yaucono in the bag.Waking up to a cup of Yauco Selecto Gourmet Ground Coffee from Puerto Rico (4 Tbsp of coffee per 12 cups of water in our "Mr. Coffee" Automatic Drip Coffee Machine), is primo.
SWMBO and I spent a week in Savannah/Tybee a few years ago and have resolved to retire to Tybee when the time comes. In approximately 150 years.For health reasons I have had to all but give up coffee but am still somewhat in the game in that I drink Folgers Simply Smooth Decaf. And, all things considered, it is really rather good.
But, this is not about that.
I once was at "The Breakfast Club" on Tybee Island just off the coast from Savannah and was quite taken aback by the quality of the coffee. I mean REALLY taken aback. I was a regular Starbucks drinker but this coffee had an amazing depth of flavor without being overbearing, the aroma was fantastic, etc. In short, it was simply a fantastic cup of coffee.
At one point I flagged the waitress down, perhaps as she was refilling my cup, and I said, "This is simply one of the best cups of coffee I've ever had, what is it?"
Needless to say, when I went home, MH replaced SBUX, et al, and I drank it quite happily for the next few years.
One trick I've learned is not to buy the huge tubs. Yes, the smaller ones are more expensive but because you go through them quicker the coffee stays fresher. And that, I think, is the key to supermarket/canned/bagged coffee.
Thomas is not bad at all. Some of my favorites are:While in Missouri I found Thomas coffee at a Walmart it's from St. Louis it's pretty good for canned.
