Java Jive

I have several email addresses--one for friends & family with my real identity displayed; the email address I use for anything related to this blog; and a business email address for the small business I started and then decided I didn't want to do anymore (long story).

And since they're all google emails, that means they all have ads for things they think may be of interest to me. I got a kick this morning when I logged into this email account and saw an ad for Seattle's Best Coffee.

I've gotten used to going to coffee shops and ordering what I want. I've been trying new things, which is always fun (this morning I got a toffee coffee frozen drink from Peet's, and it was amazing).  But I'm going to buy myself a coffee maker this weekend, and for it to be of any use, I also need to buy some coffee to brew.

I was at Marshall's yesterday looking at the array of discounted ground coffees they have, and realized that I have no earthly idea what kind of coffee to buy for home. Kona? Starbucks? Folgers? Help!


  1. I am not a big coffee drinker but when I worked at Starbucks I always enjoyed Sumatra and the Ethiopian one. I liked them with a bit of sugar and cream. I also really enjoy when people have specialty blends at their house. I think you would enjoy going to Whole Foods and looking at all the bins of coffee beans and trying out little bags of ones that catch your fancy.

  2. We've been ordering Pilao, a Brazilian coffee, from eBay. Not sure if the price has gone up since we last ordered it. I'm not a huge fan of Starbucks.
