I'm a caffeine addict so I'll bite. I drink Cafe Britt Dark Roast. The beans are freshly ground in a Nespresso Conical burr grinder each morning. MMM good!

I've drank a lot of coffee over the years and this is my favorite. My wife and I get it sent directly from the company in Costa Rica. The coffee is so good I can continue enjoying it even when the cup is cold. I pick up some killer flavors including a cinnamon component that I love.

After wasting some time trying to find them in Starbucks outlets, I finally ordered some of the Starbucks reserve coffees online. These are small-production and sometimes rare beans. They arrived Friday. I bought

- Nicaragua Maracaturra
- Ethiopia Sidamo Sun-dried
- Sumatra Rasuna Sun-dried

I ground some of the Nicaraguan this morning, and it is aromatic-- almost floral-- and delicious. Friends, if the other coffees are as good or better than this one, then I would highly recommend you giving some of them a try. I will report on the others as I open them over the next few weeks.

A co-worker of my wife just came back from Vietnam and gave her a bag of "weasel coffee" which is produced by the palm civet eating and excreting the beans. She gave it to me (non coffee drinker) and I have not yet tried. Has anyone else tasted this?

I've had the Indonesian version, Kopi Luwak. Interesting as an oddity, but not really great coffee.

Ground some Ethiopian Sidamo this morning for the first time. Very aromatic with almost a dried tobacco note on the nose, and in the mouth a lot of dark chocolate and slightly peppery on the finish. Fabulous coffee, even better than the Nicaraguan. I think these first two are definitely worth the price.
