I don't drink it, but my wife is addicted to the Hazlenut from bocajava.com. She claims it is better than any coffee she's ever had, and she is a coffee addict.
I have purchased from Nashville coffee because of their O&A/PAC support, but she likes the stuff from Boca Java better.
Hope that helps.
Edit: Was that poll there when I typed the gibberish above? I feel like a tool for my non-poll related babbling.
That's why I order my coffee with the sweetener on the side. Then I make it the way I like it. I don't use sugar, but even with the Splenda, there are times when for some reason 2 is too much and some times when I need to add 3. So, I order my large decaf with 3 Splenda on the side.
I used to like 7-11 coffees because of the flavored creamers, but somewhere along the way even the sugar free french vanilla got to be too sweet. So, since it's more convenient to go through the dashboard diner at my DD's, I do that instead.
Starbucks is good when you have a sinus or migraine headache. I used to have a medium (grande in Starbucks speak)with 2 Excedrin and be good to go within 20 minutes. The decaf alone wouldn't do it and the Excedrin alone wouldn't do it. Even the decaf had enough caffeine to do the trick.
D&D is my favorite coffee by far. I like it a lot more than the overpriced stuff at starbucks. That being said, the reason so many people love DD is due to the high salt content of their beans which is what gives it the flavor.
Most Expensive Coffee
The most expensive coffee in the world does not hail from Jamaica or Hawaii, but instead from Indonesia.
Kopi Luwak the most expensive coffee in the world does exist, and those who drink the expensive coffee insist that it is made from coffee beans eaten, partly digested and then excreted by the Common palm civet, a weasel-like animal.
“Kopi” the Indonesian word for coffee along with “luwak” is local name of this animal which eats the raw red coffee beans. The civet digests the soft outer part of the coffee cherry, but does not digest the inner beans and excretes them.
Apparently the internal digestion ends up adds a unique flavor to the beans, removing the bitter flavor, and then beans are then picked up by locals and sold. The most expensive coffee beans can cost up to $600 a pound, and up to $50 per cup, if you can get over the fact that you are drinking such a strange brew.
You would know if you drank the most expensive coffee in the world, because the quantities of it are tiny amounts.
In my opinion Dunkin Donuts is horrible. There really isn't any flavor to it and out of all the franchise coffees, it takes forever to cool down to drink it. I like to vote McDonalds for the franchises. Their coffee has really gotten better in the past year.(the only good thing about Starbucks). As for the house, I go with a brand call Reading Coffee Roasters.
Some say that it tastes of caramel or chocolate. Others describe it as earthy and musty. Whatever the flavour, connoisseurs are happy to pay $41 to savour a single cup of luwak coffee.
That is quite a price for a brew made from beans digested and excreted by Indonesian civet cats, or luwaks.
It is being marketed in Australia as “the world’s rarest and most exclusive coffee,” although those with more sense than money refer to it as “cat-poo coffee.”
Allan Sharpe, co-owner of the Heritage Tea Rooms in Hervey Bay, Queensland, said: “People who willingly pay the $50 are uplifted by the thrill of the experience.”
Every month about a dozen people sample the café’s luwak coffee, which Sharpe and his wife, Michelle, have not yet promoted or advertised since it was first on the menu last November, relying on word of mouth.
“It’s as good as my private life is bad,” one taster said. “This is the kind of coffee you renounce your religion and sell your child for.”
I make my own at home using Farmer Brothers coffee, just like the best coffee shops use. I have a commercial coffee maker that is plumbed, so I just push a button and 12 cups of goodness are a going. On the road I basically just want it hot and fresh, just like my women waka waka. when I am near one of their places I go to Dutch Brothers coffee, much better than starbucks
Some of the Starbucks alternate coffees are OK (Sumatran?). Hate the standard stuff - burnt and bitter.
Dunkin Donuts is always reliable - both Costco and Sam's have started carrying it in the stores. Bought a huge bag and make it at home.
I have one of those Phillips Senseo pod coffee makers. I got a special filter pack that lets me use any coffee I want in it. I usually don't want more than a small cup at a time, so its better than making a whole pot and dumping the extra.
Both McDonald's and Burger King have greatly improved their coffee in the last year or so - smooth and nutty tasting.
7-11 is ok as well as long as the coffee hasn't been sitting for too long. The Colombian is decent. You can tell the old coffee when you put in creamer or milk and its got a greenish tinge to it.
