I've been buying some coffee from these guys.  I am drinking some freshly ground and brewed Sumatran.

They are serious about roasting coffee.

Does serious translate into good?  French roast is my mug o' happiness in the morning.   And from Starbucks, no less.  I know, I know, so many people hate Starbucks, but it suits my palate, and from Costco it is actually pretty cheap.  Fresh ground and then put through the French press.  Lot's of French for me I guess.

Costco's own Kirkland brand is roasted by Starbucks and is a nice full bodied coffee. Our favorite from Costco is the Sumatra when they have it, when its in season we usually stock up on it.
There's nothing like grinding your own right before you brew it.

If you want cheaper coffee, better coffee, and want a NEW hobby, try roasting your own at home.  It is very easy to do.  Green coffee beans store for a long time and roast in less than 15 minutes for a half-pound or so.

I've been doing it for at least 5 years, starting with a simple thrift-store air corn popper.  Now I roast about 1/2# at a time but can do 1# if needed, in the Behmor 1600 roaster.  Attached are three photos of the Behmor ($300 new) and one of the very fancy Hottop roaster ($800) which does up to 1/2# at a time.

Green beans are available all over the Internet (I like sweetmaria.com for their selection and quality of bean) and the variety is amazing.

Thanks for that interesting bit of information but I think I'll pass. It's trouble enough for me to grind beans every morn.  Lay Z

Roasting would be fun but I know I don't have time for it. I don't even have time to grind my own beans, and when I do I never taste the difference.  These days I'm making up my own blends of various Community Coffee varieties. This morning I'm enjoying a bit of their Cafe Special mixed with Hotel Blend. There are many possible combinations, and since all their coffee tastes great, there's no way to mix up a bad batch.  I was converted to Eight O'Clock (which I don't consider "cheap," by the way. Folgers and Max House are cheap to me) but I moved back to Community after a bit. Been drinking it for years and couldn't stay away for long as it's an old favorite.

Ya' know.... I grind my own beans, not too infrequently, and I've never wanted to admit I can't taste the difference either.  Does this come into play more if you've had the beans/coffee for a while - I mean do whole beans store better?

My perennial favorite coffee is Peete's Coffee   "Major Dickason's Blend".  We always buy whole bean and grind it ourselves.  My wife really likes flavored coffee beans like chocolate raspberry, Hazelnut, or more recently, pumpkin spice.    This coffee is not my "cup of tea" you might say.     I'll drink it but I don't much care for it.

I live in Texas and it's available pretty much everywhere here. I'd mail order it if I lived in a place where it was not sold. I think there is some kind of mail order deal on their website.

Actually, my experience has been that pre-ground coffee has longer shelf life for similar taste, but that a freshly ground from newly roasted beans is heaven.

It's like strings:

Elixir:  Long playing life with similar tone - maybe don't sound absolutely the best right out of the package, but the axe sounds consistently good for a longer time with them.

Other, non-coated strings:  Sounds brilliant and pure out of the package, but for some, they age quickly to have less top end much more quickly than Elixir strings.

So, pre-ground packaged coffee is not unlike Elixir strings, whereas freshly roasted whole bean is like a premium non-coated strings - requires change-out more frequently.

Put the strings through the coffee grinder, add hot water, and let us all know how it tastes.

Sumatran is fine coffee. Used to get it at a little shop where, if you ask for a single cup, the guy takes a bag of beans out of the freezer, grinds your beans and brews it for you. It was mind altering.

Drinking stuff out of the Keurig these days. Not the same.
