Dunkin Donuts is my favorite place for coffee. Where do you like to go for coffee?
McDonalds. Seriously, since they went to their new blend, it's all I want, though I can make do with 7/11 when I'm traveling.
I don't much care for Dunkin Donuts. That's probably why there are so many varieties out there.
I sometimes made a plateful of coffee with a lot of sugar in it and inserted bread.
Lately, I've been drinking a lot of Turkish coffee. Made at home.
I usually drink my coffee at home.
When I drink it away, I avoid chaines if possible.
I drink three large mugs at home before 8:00 (Trader Joe's, shade grown dark roast). Then I'm jazzed for the day and avoid it altogether.
I do half n half of Arabica coffee and REd Bull.
I used to be a huge Starbucks fan but have grown to liking Tully's way better. And Peet's is really good too.
We go to a local place that has great coffee and an awesome atmosphere. They even have a place my kids can sit and play board games while hubby and I drink our coffee and read - called the Bean Hole - not kidding - bring it - heard all the Beavis and ButtHead jokes. Trust me.
i don't think you know what a good cup of coffee is - but the brits sure do !
Animal dung coffee at £50 a cup
The blend is made from two rare coffee beans
Would you drink it?
A gourmet coffee blended from animal droppings is being sold at a London department store for £50 per cup.
Jamaican Blue Mountain and the Kopi Luwak bean are used to create Caffe Raro which is thought to be the most expensive cup of coffee in the world.
Kopi Luwak beans are eaten, then passed, by the cat-like Asian palm civet, and sell for £324 a kilogram.
All profits from sales of the coffee at Peter Jones in Sloane Square in April will go to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Asian palm civets, which live in the foliage of plantations across south-east Asia, are said to pick the best and ripest coffee berries.
Enzymes in their digestive system break down the flesh of the fruit before the animals expel the bean.
The beans are then collected from the plantation floor by workers who wash away the dung and roast them.
David Cooper, who created the blend, said: "These rare coffees have been slowly hand roasted for around 12 minutes to ensure that we maximise the potential of each coffee.
"The final roast colour is quite dark to ensure that the espresso is perfect for a smooth latte or cappuccino."
(i bet that is "extra smooth" :wink: )

I like Peet's too, several different varieties, for both taste and sentimental reasons. Damn, where is my Peet's coffee mug? Probably in one of the cartons in my garage still unworked through after my big move.
Flying Star cafe has a good cup o'coffee locally. Calico Cafe might too (trying to remember).
Sunflower Market has some good, not wayover the top re dollars, 'ecological choice' beans in two pound packages that I get whenever I make it over there.
I'm a Starbuck's despiser as I hate the taste of burnt beans (although I used to like Starbuck's in my northern CA area since I could pick up the NYTimes there, which was hard to get locally... so I went there once in a while.
Just bought some Tully's on sale, haven't tried it yet.
1 large cup of coffee every morning.
I think there is about 2 cups of water to it, and I use over 1/3 of a cup of grounds to make that one cup..
jazzed in sludge is an understatement for me..
Adding, I need to not get near doughnuts/donuts: they're an old vice. Although lately I've bought one about once a year from the market and they taste just... wrong. I don't want to have to do a donut shoppe test run, that could be a big mistake.
On, and I have now something like 1.5 cups of coffee on the average morning. No wonder I'm so stu..
Anyway, I hardly ever don't have a cuup in the morning - I like the ritual.
In my mom's expresso machine ...
after lunch and dinner .... and when i'm feeling sleepy in the middle of the afternoon....
There's a local chain here in West Michigan called Beaners. Apparently someone took offense and now they are being renamed "Bigby".
I like Beaners better.
I'm a huge Dunkin fan and can sometimes find myself craving the stuff even. Especially in the summer. A nice DD Iced Coffee or --ohhhh the pleasure of a Coolata..yummm!
I make due at home with whatever really. But, Dunks is a great place to go for coffee.
I can't stand Starbucks - too well done burnt like taste. Which is crazy cuz I do love my coffee and I like it strong but - that stuff..yuk.
That's why people call them Charbucks.
i didnt like coffe my whole life then i tried it again a few months ago and it was great, all the buzz. but now i cant drink it again, bit odd that
