    Are you a coffee snob?

    Coffee snob? Now that I sort of am. While I don't know anything about coffee and don't know if what I am drinking is actually "better", I know what I like. I can never go wrong with Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts (dark roasts), and there are a few more that I have tried and liked but can't remember the names.

    I do NOT like Folgers or coffees that you can see through. I will drink them, however, if I must. Most hotels, for example, have pretty weak, crappy coffee. IMO.

    Oh, and I also don't put anything in my coffee. Black, always.

    Anyone know of any other good coffees?

    Re: Are you a coffee snob?

    We are constantly trying new coffees, I love a good dark roast and a lot of flavored roasts. Lately I've been hooked on Verena Street coffee, roasted in Dubuque and sold at HyVee. I recommend Mississippi Grogg and Juliens Breakfast Blend if you want to try it.

    I live in Oskaloosa, so I go to the one on the square in town... There are other locations in central/southeastern Iowa as well.

    Re: Are you a coffee snob?

    I love coffee but I don't have too many preferences. I enjoy everything from dark roast to light roast to flavored. The thing about flavored coffee...I can't really taste the "flavor". I can smell it but I can never really taste too much difference.

    Just because I live in Ankeny does not mean my parents do as well. In fact, when listing my requirements for choosing a community to reside in, number 1 on my list states "parents do not live in said community".

    Re: Are you a coffee snob?

    Seattle's Best (Level 3-5), I have had most of the Starbucks brews as well I like the Pike's, French, Italian, Espresso Roasts, Dunkin Donuts are good too. I would also suggest going to an organic food store and buying some coffees from there those are usually amazing just find a good dark roast.

    It's usually subtle, but definitely present. I drink all coffee black too, you're not tainting it with sugar or creamers are you? ;)

    Ah, yes. I like Seattle Best, too.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    All guests in my house are required to wear Cyclone apparel. In the past, I have made exceptions for McDonalds shirts as the colors are indistinguishable.

    Re: Are you a coffee snob?

    I don't care much for flavored coffee with the exception of a Dunkin donuts french vanilla once in a while. Most flavored coffee's are not good roasts which is why they add the flavoring imo. I currently live in hell where there is nowhere to buy coffee other than walmart, luckily I'm moving back to Iowa (DM) next week and I'll have so many more options.
