    Our old stovetop percolator gave up the ghost a couple of years ago, so we purchased a small Black & Decker drip coffeemaker. It does a pretty good job, but there are times I miss the stovetop pot.

    We also had a small burr grinder for a while, but it quit working after only a couple of years. Sometimes I'd run up to the roasterie, get fresh roasted beans, and when ground fresh right before brewing? It's really rich and smooth...

    Unfortunately, however, I can't afford to be a coffee snob... so we just drink the ground stuff from Aldi's most of the time. It's coffee.


    As for fast-food type coffee? I can't stand Starbucks. Had one cup years ago and it was the bitterest coffee I ever drank. But I love Wawa coffee...

    The reason most like Starbucks and such is they were never fed dirt as a kid. Or had to sample a little as a side effect of the job.

    Brazilian coffee is not VERY strong but also one of the BEST tasting coffees in the world... :yes2557: that's what folks say...
    I see Pilot advertising they are selling Brazilian coffee... not sure how good the quality of that coffee really is... I don't drink coffee... :biggrin_25512:
