Dollar for dollar, it's hard to beat the stuff that Costco carries. It's usually pretty fresh, the roasts are consistent and well done and it's priced really inexpensively.

The problem is getting in and out of Costco without fill your basket with $300 worth of other crap you don't need.

@matt1976: Meh. I've escaped Costco with just what I needed.

My favorite ... when my friend fresh roasts his own. He buys the green coffee beans from Sweet Maria's. Otherwise, I've cut down on coffee consumption a lot. The caffeine doesn't do squat for me anyways.

@matt1976: Don Pablo, all the way :) we buy in bulk, but it never lasts. Or maybe we drink too much coffee.

@narfcake: Local, fresh roasted is the best. I just couldn't justify $12/lb anymore.

Zekes! http://www.zekescoffee.com/

However, I have been buying Dunkin Donuts from BJ's because it is a lot cheaper. The $14/pound prices at Zekes is a little high but probably worth it. It is WAY better than that 1000 Faces stuff wine.woot sometimes has IMO.

@matt1976: Yeah Costco does carry a few good types of coffee.

Personally I absolutely love Starbucks and (sorry @chipgreen) I hate Caribou.

I don't mind Peet's, if we're talking grocery store coffee. When I'm in a city where I can get fresh roasted, I'll always prefer that. There's a local roaster that shows up at the farmer's markets, here, so I buy from him when he's there. I've ordered from several places online. My very first deal was from a place in (of all things) Wisconsin.

Ancora is pretty good, as long as you want what they have, or like blended coffee. I prefer varietals to be pure. If I want a blend, I'll blend it. Peet's has a holiday special of JBM and Kona that I give myself as a gift in December, although it was sold out this year before I got to it. :-(

There are many places that I like that would not be able to take the traffic from Deals dot Woot, so no sense naming them. I do love coffee, though. Mmmmm. Coffee GOOD.

Oh, and I'm with the no love for Caribou.

Fresh Market has some pretty good coffees, and so does Gevalia.

Community, particularly the New Orleans blend with chicory.

@benyust2: Don't forget about Kona from BJ's! My wife adores that stuff. And freshly hand ground by yours truly, it's some of the best coffee she's ever found.

I really don't like Starbuck's, it always tastes burnt to me. I just can't stand it.

Dunkin' Donuts is pretty good though, at least for brewing at home. Since I'm trying to dig myself out of school debt I don't really frequent any coffee places...

For store brands, Yea.. Costo's Kirkland signature Colombian coffee Supremo Bean Dark Roak Fine Grind. Its not as bitter as Starbuck's.

@narfcake: My uncle roasted his own for awhile. It was really, really good, especially because he made the coffee with a press.

@miyoshinum5: I don't know if it's what they carry all over the country, but on the west coast they've got San Fransisco Bay or something like that. There's a free trade, shade grown organic that's a little weak on flavor, but it's super low acid and rather high caffeine. I can drink it all day without getting a gut ache.

@figgers3036: Thank you. Anytime I say that Starbucks tastes burnt, people look at me like I'm dumb.

@figgers3036: When you buy it and brew it yourself it doesn't have that burnt taste. I don't know what they do to make it taste that way at Starbucks but it's just bloody awful!

vote-for4vote-against

@matt1976: People must not know what the heck coffee is supposed to taste like then. Every time I have ever gotten brewed coffee at Starbucks it has tasted burnt.

@figgers3036: I know what you mean about the strengths and taste; you really have to look at the roast of the Starbucks - for example, I find Breakfast Blend too strong for my tastes. They have recently put out a new, lighter roast and named it blonde I believe. I have not tasted it. A lot of people like McDonald's coffee - I have never had any.

Sweet Maria's green coffee beans that you roast yourself with a air pop pop corn popper.

@pyxientx: Had me a cup of the real Jamaican Blue once, man was that good.

My locally available go to brand is Eight'O Clock, usually the Hazelnut or Original flavors. For home use, I always buy whole bean as I use a burr grinder and, usually, a french press.

At work we use pre-ground coffee and one of us brings in coffee when needed. Chock Full of Nuts and Maxwell House are most common, but about the only thing I've found that I don't like is Folgers, though I will drink it rather than do without.

Jim's Organic Sweet Love. A little pricey but none better in my opinion.
