Does anybody else here drink Folgers? The new 'roast' is awful. We've been drinking the 100% Columbian and it was the best for daily drinking. (whole beans are for special occasions) Has anybody else thought this? Is this New Coke all over again? Is this the fifth horseman of the Apocalypse? And what about Mrs. Olsen?

:coffee:

Being from an area where good coffe is abundant, I have never even concieved of drinking folgers. I tried to drink it when I was on the nightshift at a local grociery when I was 19, but ended up drinking energy drinks instead. If you can I highly recomend these:

Chase and Sanborn - you are safe from this new travesty. I used to drink that years ago when I lived in Texas.

Well you are in the coffee holy land!! We would be in the poor house if we had that kind of coffee as our daily drink, as we make at least 3-4 pots a day. One of those is the pot my wife makes for me to take to work in my thermos! Am I lucky or what?!! (We use beans for our night coffe, or special occasion) Could you mail me some? Please, oh, please. I'll thank all posts that you make for the next 6 months if you do!

I actually broke down and bought Maxwell house's 100% columbian coffee. I feel like I've gone over to the dark side! But it was better than this new folgers stuff. My wife and I toasted each other at our wedding with 100% Columbian coffee from Folgers! Life is hard.

Sorry Presbyterian Deacon, I was typing out my next post while you posted yours. No offence about the dark side, as we may be switching. :p

We always buy whatever beans Costco or the grocery store have on hand and grind each pot's worth when we make it.

I also like McDonalds, Gloria Jean's, Border's, and Seattle's Best. I LOATHE Starbucks. Burnt beans! Yech! When you take you coffee black, you really notice things like that.

That's the only way to go!!!

I can see it now: Black or Sugar or Cream :worms: :lol:

Alright! A coffee thread!

I, too, am addicted... but I'm not too sad about it.

I'm not at the level of drinking it black yet. I still have to put in tons of chocolate and milk. :)

I've been switching off between Starbucks, Seattle's Best, and Jose's (from Costco). At this point it doesn't really matter that much to me which brand it is at this point, because I put so much other stuff in it, but I'm always willing to try new coffee. :)

Thanks for this thread. For some reason it made me happy. :coffee:

Foldgers coffee is like drinking warm, old, off-brand beer. I like Caribou coffee (whole bean, ground max. of 5 minutes before brewing) for daily drinking, though. I am getting a coffee tree come fall. In a few years I will roast my own :detective:

I highly recommend Dunkin' Donuts coffee - from the grocery store or buy it online. Try it once, just once. It is awesome coffee, hands down the best out there.

I am used to Navy coffee - min. 3 hrs on the burner before serving sans cream and sugar. I usually drink what is cheapest and like Ivan, free. :) But, if I had a million dollars, I would buy a rocket car and Dunkin' Donuts coffee.

Community Coffee is the way to go if you want a good off the shelf coffee that is rich, dark, and not burnt in the roasting process. Or, if you are in Mobile stop by Carpe Diem and pick up some that is roasted on site. It'll knock your socks off. Their french roast is the closest I've had to the wonderful coffee we drank in Argentina.

:agree:

Dunkin' Donuts whole bean original roast, freshly ground at home and made in the press pot -- Consistently the best coffee I've ever had.

Never tried it but thanks for the heads up.

At my house we drink coffee or breakfast tea in the morning, espresso at lunch, yerba mate at tea break and tea throughout...fancy coffee is not high on the list.

I was working in an office recently that had this sign posted:

"Friends don't let friends drink Folgers!"

We'll drink most anything that's NOT South American. The acidity is awful in our book ....

...snorting razor blades. :lol:

(odd verb sound - snort, snort, snort, snort, snort)
Want to know something strange? In my younger days I worked in an aluminum foundry on the graveyard shift. I am one of those folks who cannot sleep in the daytime unless I am on the verge of passing out. So, I would be up for three and four days at a time. I would get tired during the shift, really tired. We were not allowed to eat or drink on the production floor so coffee was out. NoDoz was illegal in the company regs. But, I found out that espresso coffee beans ground a bit course and placed between the cheek and gum, a la smokeless tobacco, delivered quite a caffeine punch to keep one awake. Hey, desperate times bring solutions!
