    Folgers 100% Colombian. That’s all my hubs will drink. I like to venture out and try new different coffees so I pick up those Mill House single pot little bags. So many different flavors. I also try every new coffee creamer that comes along. I LOVE coffee!!! Some days waaaaay too much!

    Too many questions for me!
    Have not had enough coffee, yet!
    Well, to answer what kind….Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks.
    I want regular, but the Dr. said, “DECAF!” only…
    I usually get it already done up from the Starbucks crew.
    The Dunkin Donuts is already done for you.
    Dunkin Donuts is just called Dunkin Decaf…Starbucks, I like Sumatra or Verona, I am curious who puts their coffee in the freezer, frig, or cool area shelf…after they open it. I have mixed reviews on that. Just curious….

    I love Folgers. No decaf for me. I’ve tried different coffee’s but Folgers is like “home” to me and I love the way it tastes. I use French Vanilla cream and 2 lumps of sugar.

    You know I’ve heard people putting coffee in the freezer, it’s supposed to last longer. Ours never lasts long enough to go bad, we go through 2 big containers a week. I wonder how long it takes for coffee to go bad. Great question!

    It’s Folgers classic roast for me! No decaf here either! I like to get a bag of Starbucks Breakfast Blend from time to time also. I don’t doctor mine up at all either. I like mine straight up black.

    I wrote a post last month about Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee last month. You may want to read it if you haven’t already. Blue Mountain is HANDS DOWN, the best coffee I have EVER had!

    I have wondered about the whole coffee in the freezer thing myself. I never have done that but because I am the only person in my house that drinks coffee, I do notice a big difference between the first pot I brew from the can and the last. The last few pots always tastes kinda “stale”. I think I will try keeping the coffee container in the freezer and see if that makes any difference.

    One of those large Folgers containers lasts me about 2 weeks.

    Hi Gary, Coffee I hate to admit this but I’m allergic to coffee I brake out with a rash on my back and face. Here the part I don’t want to admit. I Love Coffee! I found one brand I can drink it’s Colter Coffee Sumantra blend. I like my coffee black but occasionally I whoop it up with a little cream and sugar.

    Hi Starla!

    Allergic to coffee? That’s terrible! I don’t know what I would do! I’m glad you found a brand you can safely drink though!

    It has to be tanked up with gogo juice for me. I am not sure about the freezer thing it never last long enough in my house to go stale. I drink coffee from the time I awake until I go to bed everyday!

    Gary, maybe that is why I do not sleep well! You think????

    Did you ever notice that everyone thinks they make good coffee? Kinda like everyone thinks they are a good driver?

      LOL! You know, I have never really thought about it but you are absolutely right!! ROFL!!

      Thanks for dropping by and commenting Neighbor! I hope you come back again soon!!

    Gary, I think you know my answer to this question, LOL! But speaking of Jamaica, I do love Ting!

    • February 20, 2009 11:19 PM

      ROFL!! I wrote that post just for you Morocco!! I KNOW how you just LOOOOOOVE a good cup of coffee! ROFL!!

      I didn’t have any Ting when I was in Jamaica. 😦 It was on my list of things to do when I was there but never got around to it. 😦 Hey, that gives me an excuse to go back!!! 🙂

    The one can I’ve purchased is Folgers Classic Roast 1/2 caff. Regular coffee makes my heart thump out of my chest! I do keep mine in the fridge (not the freezer) and it seems to be keeping just fine.

    Gary–you are so bad!

    I can’t wait to go back. But I noticed that they carry Ting at our international grocery store here in town.

      I can’t wait to go back either! I LOVE it there!!!! My wife and I went to Negril…..where did you go??

      I don’t think there is ANYWHERE here to find Ting. 😦

    Although I am fairly savvy in the kitchen, I cannot make a good cup of coffee. It’s not really a problem, since I don’t drink much coffee anyway. I do have a little 4-cup Mr. Coffee drip machine that I’ve used about 5 times since I bought it before Christmas.

    When I feel like having a cup of coffee, I’ll usually just pop over to Dunkin’ Donuts. Or, if I’m feeling particularly confident, I’ll head over to the swankier coffee shop in town. It’s a little pricier, but the barista is awfully cute. I guess the cost pays for the coffee and the eye candy.
