    Cuban sugar company ? I thought is was an American sugar company owned by Cuban Americans (Fanjuls ?) and growing sugar in Dominican Republic and Florida ?

    I think those 'Cuban' coffee brands are some blend of Brazilian/Colombian or Ecuadoran coffees.

    Re: Which Coffee do you like most?

    My favorites are 100% Kona - Very smooth, no aftertaste, no bitterness...
    Full City Espresso beans- A nice fairly smooth coffee
    New York (brand) -Not as smooth as Kona, but robust
    and Peets is pretty good too. - a little more aftertaste, but still very good.
    Although Consumer reports rated 8 o clock Coffee as the highest. (it's also very inexpensive at WalMart) I have yet to try it.
    I also want to try Illy coffee, but it's pretty pricey.
    I make all my coffee on a Saeco Odeo Giro esspresso machine mostly long coffee... I use to us RO water only but we've since moved and don't have the system any more, so now I just use city water. It does make a difference in taste, I also have to de-scale my machine more often.

    Re: Which Coffee do you like most?

    I just LOVE all kinds of coffee but I have a strict budget. I used to drink Folgers or Maxwell House but for home brewing I use Yuban and only Yuban now. It's 100% Columbian I believe. I do not like instant coffee of any kind even when camping...I'd rather drink "cowboy coffee" than instant! Oh heck, just let me suck on the grounds! And I find if I put a pinch of baking soda in the basket with the coffee then no matter how strong I make it...it doesn't upset my stomach. I even take a small container with me when I go to my favorite local coffee shop...just a pinch will cut the acidity and the actual coffee flavor comes through.

    Re:

    I think Greatcoffee.com is a great place to try the top rated coffees from different roasters.
    I've used them quiet a few times with no complaints. If then one roaster stands out
    I may order from them direct.

    I seriously doubt any of the well known roasters like Intelli/CCC/ect would be interested in cutting you a piece of the pie when they are doing all the work. I also have to wonder what I have to gain over just buying directly from their websites?

    If you hook up with some of the smaller, regional roasters it might fly but the quality would have to be there.

    This place: http://www.greatcoffee.com/trlanding.cfm already does something similar. I believe they are tied in with Coffee Review. From the reviews I've read they actually ship the coffee so freshness or lack of it has been an issue.

    Re: Which Coffee do you like most?

    My favorite bean has to be the Sumatara (or is it Sumatra ) .. roasted Full City to Full City + .. not as acidic... not crispy.

    I really appreciate an interesting bean. a funky earthy bean is always welcome in my cup... I guess they usually come from Africa... I also like a bright and clean coffee... I've only had the Kona in a blend, but it was a real flavorful and clean cup... the roaster must not have skimped on quality with the filler beans, because the coffee was great to say the least...

    I really love a quality coffee, but unfortunately, I cant afford to pay $14+ for a 12 ounce bag of the fresh-roasted coffee often, so I stick with our local store-brand organic beans.

    I may need to reconsider my options before too long.

    Re: Which Coffee do you like most?

    Thewilliams1, your coffee preferences are similar to mine. I stick with Sumatran coffees for the most part. I like an occasional Kenyan AA or Ethiopian Yirgacheffe when I'd rather something mellow, but still rich in natural flavor. I recently got some Indian Monsooned Malabar and this stuff is funky for sure, nice in the mornings.

    So, have you tried a coffee shop that is local to you for purchasing beans? $14 is kinda steep for a 12oz bag of Sumatran. I'd say you could find some good stuff for around $12/lb roasted locally, if you shop around. Actually, are you in the US?

    Re: Which Coffee do you like most?

    Yep.. I'm in the US.. Pennsylvania actually.

    There are a few good roasters in the area.. and by area I mean within an hours drive. I get some good beans from a cafe up the road from me at a good price, but they are not as fresh as I'd like. You get what you pay for, I guess.

    People have suggested that I mail-order my beans.. I had a few bags from Stumptown a few weeks ago, and I cherished every cup LOL!!! But convenience usually wins out .. and once it was gone, I was back to drinking the usual.

    I'll tell you this much... when you dont have the best all the time, the times you do are that much better.

    The best way to get the freshest coffee is to roast it your self.
