In a normal day I drink one 24oz mug of usually Folger's.

I think you poured the beans in and put the bag under a chute and set the machine for the grind you wanted. Even as a child I thought it was ambrosia. We were raised such that The Amish would be rated as Hippies, so we weren't allowed to drink coffee.
I have thus far not found the coffee that taste as good as that smell.
Sometimes a memorable smell resembling waifes by, but.....
If there are markets that still have one of those grinders and shelves of different beans, I'm going to buy what smells the best and grind it for what type of machine?
If I find the taste to match that smell, I'll trow out the Kerig and find the coffeemaker that doesn't screw it up.
Starbucks is a total turnoff.Smells like burnt rubber or something.
A coffee grinder of my own and the proper beans is the answer. Why can't I ever think of it when shopping?


It’s sometimes a little difficult to spot whole coffee beans in the coffee aisle. It seems like ground coffee is much more popular. That’ll work for me temporarily if I can’t locate whole beans, but the instant stuff is a definite no-no. Totally undrinkable stuff! [emoticon]

For caffeine boost sans café dark chocolate has a surprising amount of caffeine. Eighty percent dark chocolate has enough kick for it to equal a cup or two of roadside joe. The sugar content also helps. For some reason chocolate lasts longer than coffee in my system. I pack a cup or two of baking chocolate.

For mornings chocolate is a counterfeit substitute for a mug of good coffee. And I'll skip the blood sugar spike [emoticon]

That would most likely have been at teh Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company stores (A&P) Today those grinders are hard to find.

Some years back a magazine did a "Coffee Taste Test" They compared the generic brands (Maxwell House, Folger's Hills bro's and the like) and some "Gormet" brands.

Which one was the best? 8 O'Clock fresh ground in store at A&P
you can still get 8 O'Clock but alas it tends to be factory ground.

I do have whole bean in stock (Along with Folgers ground) and a kinfe mill grinder and I know where to get more beans not too far from me. but they are getting harder and harder to find.

Absolutely no issues anywhere around here finding whole bean coffee. All the chains in the area carry a large assortment of whole beans. I used to buy from CoffeeBeanDirect which has a huge selection of coffee, beans or ground. Now we get our beans from my stepson at $20 for 5 pounds.

Is 8 O'clock coffee drinkable at any other time? [emoticon]

No. Just a half-hour either way.

We need a new ***Link Removed*** for the office. The one we have is something you might see in a Denny's and the stuff that it produces tastes like liquid rubber.

Interested to hear what is working in the rest of your offices, or maybe more relevant, what you would rather have.

About us: 25 architects. Designing towers. Use coffee for individual use throughout the day and in large quantities for client meetings. Bay area = we have high standards for single cup quality
