Absolute Favourite Coffee - Veracruz coffee from Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico
Favourite Coffee you can actually find - Cafe du Monde from New Orleans
(not to be confused with CDM which is a rip off).
Regular Coffee - Community Coffee - medium roast or chicory blend.
You can find community and Cafe du Monde in most nicer grocery stores and just about anywhere along the Gulf Coast
. They run about $5-8 per pound, but you don't need much.
I grew up with that great Louisiana coffee and it's full rich taste. Folgers and Maxwell
house and most of the other national brands come out of the same roasting plants in New Orleans
, but the quality and flavour is so much less.
And starbucks...I think you can clean your shoes with it (not nice shoes).
I have to admit that after living in Germany
for a few years I do now have the nasty habit of drinking mookyfook (German name for instant coffee). At the time it was a cheap alternative to the expensive German coffee which always tasted like brown battery
acid. Now it's just not wanting to waste half a pot of 'good' coffee.
If anyone has 120v in their boat, the Hamilton Beach Brewstation ($30-60) has got to be the best coffee maker ever! Great tasting brew, keeps it warm for 2+ hours, and no caraffe to worry about breaking!
