    Hello, I'm looking for good coffee ! Had some real good coffee that had a cinnamon and chocolate flavor which was a house blend with cinnamon added, but can't travel to Indiana everyday to get it. So do any of you have a coffee suggestion that would fit the bill. Thanks!

    As far as flavored coffee these days I stick with Gevalia cups and add flavor syrup.
    Hubby really likes the Starbucks Christmas Blend cups. Neither of us are very fond of giving Starbucks our money but they do have good cups. I get them from Bed Bath and Beyond and use coupons. Makes them inexpensive. I try and stock up when they are on sale. They let you use their coupons on sale items as well so I end up getting them for approximately 25-40% of normal price.

    If you want some GOOD coffee try some Farmers Blend which is served in many restaurants. There is a place in Ventura, Ca. that everytime I go there I ask them if they still serve Farmers and they also answer "yes we do". I have tried all kinds and always buy Folgers but here I can't find any Farmers Blend. Darn!!!!

    I like a good French roast. I use a press lot to brew.

    I enjoy the cinnamon and chocolate as well. Use actual cinnamon and chocolate. I like to replace the cinnamon with nutmeg in November, and with peppermint during December. Got to keep with the holiday spirit!

    C'mon folks. Straight coffee. Black. Strong. Lots of it. Clears the phlegm, loosens the vocal chords for singing duets with the cat. I take the tenor, he takes countertenor. (I don't actually have a cat buddy, he's some relation to Hobbes.)

    Coffee press pots are good aren't they! I like strong coffee, hence why I like the press pot.

    Some of the best coffee is what we call river coffee. Dip the can in the river, throw in a handful of grounds, and boil it. It will melt a spoon, or float a battleship, whichever saying you prefer.

    I drink my coffee mostly black, but like seasonings from time to time. Whiskey in the river coffee is a good match. I like chicory, and nuts, even acorns. Not real big on pumpkin, but I do like mint and spices. I like my seasonings brewed with the coffee, not added afterwards.

    River coffee, otherwise known as cowboy coffee is sure good. I've also tried cold brew as well. Cold brew produces the smoothest taste I've had as of yet. Also if you use a conventional coffee maker, be careful about flavored grounds. The flavor agents can taint the plastic and metals and thereby make the coffee maker almost unusable for unflavored brews because it will deposit the past flavors into your cup. Or at least that's what the "experts" say. Course we all know how un-expert and the "experts" can be !

    I only use steel and glass. Any plastic has to be where no hot liquids touch it. Some say you should only use glass, but I have never had an issue with steel tainting the flavor. Or maybe I just like the flavor of steel. ?????

    I can taste aluminum or plastic in the coffee though.

    Hmm. Never really noticed the plastic taste. But the steel preference may be related to your target preferences . lol!

    My church has its own coffee shop. Now and then they serve an African coffee that's just beautiful. I'm also a big fan of their Jamaican Island coffee.

    Lots of good coffee can be made from the cheap stuff. Add your own flavorings if you like them!
