Ah, lovely coffee. My wife and I are coffee snobs, we usually go through at least two pots on our days off. She drinks hers with cream and splenda,
I drink mine black, however sometimes I will put a little cream and some honey in it. We only grind our own, we have been trying out boca java, they
ship it to you, and it is pretty good stuff. My favorite coffee is from my home town, if you want good coffee look up flower garden bakery in grass
valley california, and order some of the house blend, awesome coffee. As far as starbucks it will work in a pinch, but their coffee is inferior, you
look at the size of their beans compared to someone like flour gardens beans and the starbucks look like sickley little things compared to the good
beans. Plus it is good to give business to a small company.
In my opinion you have to grind your own beans, keep your beans sealed, and use a good amount when making the coffee. If you want an absolute
fantastic cup of coffee, do away with the standard coffee maker and use a french press. I use that every once in a while, but usually just use a self
dispensing maker, no pot, and really easy clean up. It is a good coffee maker, but the french press, blows it away.
