i drink a minimum of three 12 cup pots of joe a day. if i'm doing errands i'll also have a few cups from Quik Chek, a local franchise chain
i buy what is on sale at the supermarket. it's 3:30AM where I am and I just made a fresh pot of Chock Full of Nuts brand. i usually wind up with
Folgers, Maxwell House, CFoF or Melitta.
Melitta is IMHO the finest pre-ground, simply delicious, but rarely on sale. Highly recommended.
Best cup of coffee I ever had was Law's Coffee. It's served at diners & joints in NY/NJ, who knows where else.
I get no real kick from coffee. But life is sad without it. I even have a coffee when I'm in the tub. Goes good with a cig while one soaks.
My two cents: switch over to Tea for a few weeks. Or start using more beans in your machine.
I think (was it lifer1967?) gave the best advice: Switch to fresh ground beans or grind your own beans. The good stuff costs more and it's worth
A good friend has an automatic brewer w/ built-in grinder & timer. He & his wife awaken to the smell & enjoyment of freshly ground bean fresh brewed
coffee every single day. nice, nice.
