I second the motion for trading.

I don't like Starbucks and my friends give me the "what? why?" Look. I'm just picky. To a fault though. I've found diner coffee much more appealing to me. I went to a local cafe near one of our malls and ordered a caramel mocha cappuccino just to shake up my routine. I expected a simple small mug, because my expectations were low but was surprised when it came out on a saucer, in a sizable mug (about 16oz?) with a wonderful whipped cream crown, drizzled caramel on top and a stick of dark chocolate sticking out. Yum. I prefer coffee black but that was tasty.

I have a local guy who gets in free trade beans and roasts them himself....some days he brings me bags that are still warm...that is the best coffee in the world.

For those in the Gainesville,FL area looking for best beans around....and they deliver in the area free

Buy Coffee Online, Gainesville, FL Coffee Roasters - Tree City Coffee Roasters - Home

For those not in the area....they will ship and are still the best beans around
This is good to know. Thanks Brother Jerry. Good info on here. So far 2013 is going well.

From what I've read, they function fairly similar. The Bialetti is a bit simpler and in general, doesn't depend on electricity.

We have Kaldi's here in St. Louis that is really nice. I typically drink anything, and like it dark, black, and hot. Not too picky as I got started on MRE coffee in the Army. Still, there is a difference between a good cup of coffee and a not so good cup. I had some really good coffee at Pete's Coffee in Sunnyvale, CA and also some fantastic Turkish coffee out there too.

I'm interested in getting a French press of my own or investigating some of the gizmos you guys are talking about.

Oh MAN, I would love to trade some local roasts. My cousin has some superb blend, I ask him to make coffee every time I go over haha, you might like it if you like really bold blends. Goes really well with a thick hazelnut cream and a bit of sugar.

EDIT: and I guess the brand of coffee Mickey D's uses is "Gavina" (with a tilde over the n). Must. find. :0

I'm going to go against the grain here and say nothing beats home roasted.
Super easy to do too with a popcorn air popper.
