Coffee & Buying Coffee Online
Hey guys,

Im curious as to whether any of you purchase coffee online and if so, what kind of coffee do you recommend and what are some good online stores to purchase at?

I typically buy coffee at starbucks or at coffee bean and prepare it in a basic coffee machine... I'm not knowledgeable about the different types of coffee, but I prefer the darkest roasted beans, since they have less caffeine (roasting coffee to make it dark burns off more of the caffeine), and thus I can drink more throughout the day without getting too buzzed.

Im interested in trying out new good types of coffees and new methods of preparation.

Recommendations?

Thanks

RE: Coffee & Buying Coffee Online
The french press with freshly ground beans (in a burr grinder of course) is my preferred method or preparation.

In terms of roasters:
Verve is one of my favorites

Inteligencia can be better but not as consistent in my opinion

Stumptown gets a solid honorable mention

I'm a coffee addict and by far the best coffee I ever drank was Jamaican Blue Mountain, you can order it online here: http://www.bluemountaincoffee.com/. I highly recommend taking a trip to Jamaica, picking your own coffee and having them roast it for you and chilling out in the Blue Mountains, probably one of the best travel experiences I've ever had.

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.

Thumbs Up RE: Coffee & Buying Coffee Online
Ever since I bought a burr grinder I love my coffee even more! It has 40 custom grind settings that lets me grind from Espresso to French Press. I recently found an online coffee store, http://www.dailycuppacoffee.com/, that sells everything right from exotic coffee powders to coffee machines. Right now I'm loving their Arabica blend of Italian light roast!

Seconded on the Jamaican Blue Mountain. My sister brought me some as gift from her trip to JA. Great stuff.

I bought some Jamaican Blue Mountain from a Chinese Jamaican store here in Miami and it tasted wack.

Now I'm skeptical of even getting it online.

RE: Coffee & Buying Coffee Online
I had some civet cat coffee - there is a chain, Cafe Luwak, which specializes in it in Indonesia. It was a good cup of coffee, but not noticeably better than a good caffe Americano from an Italian bar.

Off the shelf, I like Jacobs or Tschibo, Germans do good coffee. Subscribed to Godiva for awhile, it was pretty good.

If I had to give up either coffee or alcohol, I'd give up alcohol.

I like Pilon 10oz bricks for my Italian stovetop moka maker. If you buy a case will wind up costing you about 3 bucks a brick or so, but looks like the prices went up from the last time I ordered. Used to be free shipping, now I think they charge. It's not what I would call a premium coffee but very solid value if you are a penny pincher like me. Buy one in the grocery store and see if you like it.
