I am definitely a “let’s make a diference” coffee drinker! I have been researching coffee beans, strengths, grinding, flavors, macho, lacho hatcho since I was in my early twenties….which was a very long time ago, since I am now 61. I became a “coffee snob” for awhile, but what I must insist on is “non-burned, rich medium dark with a non-acid aftertaste. What works best for me is Gold Mountain Swiss Chocolate Almond. Just right! It’s mellow, with a soft nutty aftertaste , with just a hint of something you might think of as chocolate. I have used only Krups coffee makers for over 40 years. I feel like I was one of the “original” coffee investigators, because when I was 20, almost everybody drank Maxwell house, and never gave it a second thought…Can You Imagine??? Thanks for the post Hil, I wish we could have these conversations in person. I love you guys!!!!

Linda, I love it! I did not know this about you… that is awesome that you were a “pioneer” into a “superior coffee experience” when everyone was still chugging down Maxwell House, ha! Can’t wait to drink some coffee with you at Christmas!

I love Starbucks when I’m out (mostly because the quality is fairly reliable and I know they treat their employees relatively well compared to most – so it’s not like Wal-Mart to me! ;) Ha.), but I’m all about fair-trade, organic, shade-grown Sumatran coffee beans at home. With a French press.
We’ve had a sticker on our fridge forever that says, “What would Jesus brew?” that I got at a fair trade sale. We got tired of waste created by buying Trader Joe’s fair trade coffee in canisters and looked up the website listed on the sticker – Dean’s Beans is the BOMB and we will be lifelong customers, I think!! :)
Also, I put cream and a small spoonful of fair trade raw sugar in my coffee. I am not perfect about fair trade everything, but it’s so easy to do with coffee, that I figure I have to!

Ashley, I absolutely LOVE that sticker! I might need to order one. Thank you for the Dean’s Beans referral, I will definitely check them out. And I agree, if you can go fair trade, why not? Also, have you heard of this stuff? http://www.upgradedself.com/coffee?a_aid=4fb28f8e8ccf4&a_bid=ca9bb4cd It is definitley taking coffee obsession to a whole new level. But I am kind of interested…
