What is your favorite coffee that you can make AT HOME?

I just started really drinking coffee at home because running to Starbucks sucks in 20 degree weather. Plus I got a K-Cup for Christmas and it's like....so **** easy.

Just curious what people really like. I never really bought coffee much (aside from pods at one point) so I don't really know what I like/don't like. I am just now learning how to make a decent cup of coffee!

My favorite coffee right now is the Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice K-Cups.
I ordered a ton of various sample packs the other day because the Pumpkin Spice is seasonal and I don't want to cry when they sell out, lol.

(Also, the coffee doesn't have to be a K-Cup---I also have one of the things you can fill up and put any type of coffee in)

Dunkin Donuts. Yum. That's my absolute fav & then I just buy the yummy flavored creamers at the store. I just won't pay $4 for coffe at Starbucks (plus lugging both kids there) when I like the Dunkin just as much (more than their brewed coffee).

Mercy House Coffee

We buy these coffee beans and grind our own coffee. Proceeds go to teach people in other countries how to grow their own beans on farms and not sell their children into slavery or prostitution. You should hear this guy talk about it. It broke our hearts and this is the only stuff we buy now. We stocked up on it for Christmas too and gave the beans away for gifts.

I'm Canadian, so of course Tim Horton's. We buy the tins and make it at home.

If we are splurging (and we can find it) then we'll get Blue Mountain coffee. It's Jamaican....and I swear it is the best coffee in the world. You have to get the real stuff though (there's a lot of them that say Blue Mountain but truly aren't). And you have to get the beans. So so so good! It's very expensive though.

I usually get Starbucks when I go out for playdates, but I got embarassed when the people started recognizing me (and one girl remembered Sophie's name) because I was going SO much.....but my excuse was that I love their seasonal drinks so much, and now that they are gone (well I will order them until they say they've run out of the stuff) I really don't love it as much as I did....

...although I am sort of wanting to get the new 32oz sized coffee just so I can like...say I did and didn't die of hyper overdose.

I don't make coffee at home...I haven't tried that many but the only kind I like is Starbucks. We have a Coffee Bean downstairs, but their coffee is too...smooth-tasting? for me.

I love those Pumpkin Spice ones! But I don't have a Keurig so I brew Dunkin' Donuts coffee. It's the best!
