You know that Starbucks bought Seattle’s Best?
But, I think that coffee is one of the 4 basic food groups (coffee, chocolate, chardonnay, ice cream). There is nothing quite like a full-bodied, well roasted coffee. Coming from law enforcement I learned to drink coffee black. If the coffee is good it doesn’t flavoring, cream or sugar.
I’ll admit that I’ve become a coffee snob. I have a machine that grinds the beans and filters the water. I have it set on a timer so it is ready when I walk into the kitchen in the morning.
I get my coffee from Old Bisbee Roasters (http://www.oldbisbeeroasters.com). They get small shipments of free trade coffe that they roast when you order and send it our priority mail. They only sell roasted beans so you’ll have to grind it yourself, but it is worth it.
They have a very extensive menu that changes with the receipt of new coffees, but they always have some of the favorite blends. Try a sampler, you won’t be disaapointed. And no, I don’t work for them.
