Show-off!

The best coffee is the freshest roasted, brewed within five days (no older!) or it gets bitter. I like Starbuck's, I guess for that reason.

Ok, I consider DH to be a coffee snob...so, I'll go based off his recommendations.

He doesn't care for McDonald's coffee, at least not the stuff he last tried. He has to put milk in Starbuck's coffee because it's so acidic, and I doubt he's had Dunkin' Donuts coffee. He prefers home made. I don't care for regular coffee so much.

However, if you want to go into specialty drinks, I LOVE Starbucks!

I typically get a nonfat caramel macchiato. When it gets warmer, I get it iced.

I can only drink Starbucks coffee... I prefer my coffee to not actually taste like coffee so I get different flavored ones.

Seeing as I grind and brew my own it's difficut to say. Here's my list: Arabica (I don't know how local they are, but there are a lot in the Cleveland area), Gloria Gene's (local), and Starbucks.

The best is Dunkins. Starbucks is too bitter and too much $$$. It's also too foo-foo fancy for my tastes. McDonalds isn't that bad, but the worst is Burger King. The King now has 3 types - regular, decaf and turbo (which supposedly has more caffine). It tastes like mud. As for Tim Hortons, there are some in Rhode Island but I haven't been to one yet. I guess I'll have to go.

I drink lots of coffee and try lots of different kinds and brands. My favorite coffee of all time is Dunkin' Donuts. I buy bags at the store and bring them home, but it just isn't the same. I love a fresh hot cup of Dunkin' Donuts coffee!!!!! Unfortunately, there are no Dunkin' Donuts here where I live in TN

I am suddenly in desperate need of a coffee ... Curse my inability to ignore TCS!

Alas, the only coffee available in my building is from Starbucks, which I find too bitter (not to mention too pricy); Tim Hortons is too far away, whereas there's a Starbucks stand right outside my office.

I read a consumer's reports article that said DD was better than Starbucks and I don't agree at all. I bought a lb. of the Dunkin Donuts variety and couldn't even finish it- regardless of how much flavored creamer I added. It had so many quakers- light beans that are poor in quality (not of the Friends variety ). I was shocked with the poor quality of the beans considering the review it got. The Starbucks stuff isn't that great either, but it's the best grocery store brand I've bought. Starbucks coffee from an actual shop is a lot better. My favorite coffees come local- Crazy Sisters Coffee Roasters and Old Crown Roasters. You can order Crazy Sisters online- http://www.crazysisterscoffee.com/ It is owned by an oncology nurse and her sister. Old Crown Roasters is amazing coffee- especially their house blend. You can also check them out online: http://www.oldcrown.com/

Enough plugging for my favorite local coffee roasters If you want good coffee go local. Freshly roasted coffee beats any store brand hands down. It's totally different.

Ok, I used to work at Gloria Jean's so I feel obligated to say they're the best. They're not but they're right near the top. So, I guess I didn't say their the best anyway...

I've a theory that Starbucks burns their beans to make their coffee taste "strong." They can keep it and do whatever McDonald's does with their leftovers.

If I'm eating a donut, too, I'll go to Krispy Kreme. I can't say how the coffee is but the donut's are the South's best kept secret!!!!
