    I went with Koffee Kult since it had thousands of good reviews. And people said it tastes like chocolate. I like chocolate.

    Until Waffle House will come out with their own coffee, I guess I'm stuck trying to find something classy.

    Hope it was responsibly sourced?!

    I drank a fair bit in Indonesia, whilst it was cheap(er) and I knew where it came from..

    It is incredibly smooth as the fermentation takes away some of the bitterness you get in coffee.

    Another good coffee to try (at source) is Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee...

    They even do some good coffee rice with their jerk chicken too!

    As for a recommendation, swing by your local coffee roasters and ask for some Kenya PeaBerry in a medium roast!

    Then brew it the Cuban way, through an old sock...

    [​IMG]

    With all that said, If you do find yourself in Cuba through various import/export negotiations.... Havana does have one of the best coffee roasters in the world!!

    I make cuban coffee exactly like shown in this video.

    I also use a cafetera cubana. Some people call it a moka pot. It's pretty much all you see in latin america.

    Cuando estoy en Miami, siempre paso la mañana en Cafe Versailles con un cafecito y un quesito.

    Well as you don’t mind dairy with your coffee, try a knob of butter in with a cup of black coffee and whisk it up... it’ll taste better with an elevated little finger whilst drinking!

    I'm partial to Caribou Coffee, much richer in flavor than a lot of the other coffees I've had. Other than the stuff they brew at Shady Maple, I would make the drive to get a cup of that about now. Amish coffee is on the level, even if their construction isn't.

    Caribou coffee is really good.

    I don’t put any dairy in my coffee and I darn sure won’t put butter. Or honey. Or anything else that would appeal to someone who would shop at a While Foods.

    your missing out on buttered/sugared coffee!

    I normally drink my coffee strong , black and sitting in the pot for a day. But a hot buttered ,heavily sugared insanely strong coffee is full of energy and fat and tastes great.

    Also a big fan of Black Rifle, their darker roasts are very tastey. Sign up for their email updates and wait for a package deal or free shipping.
