Honest to god I have never been inside a dunkin doughnuts or a Starbucks and probably never will.

The locals sell what they call "rat-bite" coffee. Beans with small rodent nibbles on them. They say the rodents only nibble on the beans that are at the "peak of perfection" (ripeness), hence, the perfect bean. True story.
Now I drink anything with caffeine in it.

Cafe Bustelo. Cuban espresso grind.
They also make an excellent instant coffee. I keep it on hand for emergencies only.

I live in NYC, parents live in Seattle. They actually favor Park Slope, Brooklyn-based Gorilla (available online if you are not here) over anything they get out there, but that might just be polite behavior, innate to native Virginians. My friend SWEARS by Blue Bottle coffee in Williamsburg which I thought was pretty decent. *note: pretty decent
Oddly, at perhaps a tenth of the cost of either of those, Chock-Full-O'-Nuts is actually really good and extremely cheap. With grad school debt and Brooklyn rent, CFON is my day to day jam right now with Gorilla and BB my treat on the weekend.

I drink black MJB at home, whatever they're serving elsewhere. I'm definitely no coffee snob and with less than a half-dozen trips into Starbucks with friends, I'm not impressed with their overpriced coffee in the least.
And for you younger types who aren't drinking coffee yet, don't add that first teaspoon of sugar or cream to make it taste like a kiddy drink and you'll be happier later on. Drink it black and you'll save a lot of time and trouble in the future by not having to worry about asking for sugar, cream, etc.. My dad told me that before I left home for the military and it turned out to be great advice.

coffee is coffee to me. much the same way beer is beer. as long as it's strong and fresh, i love it.
if i had my choices though, i would probably rank starbucks regular, denny's, and folgers as my top 3. i drink maxwell house, and sheetz the most however. my girlfriend likes "coffee flavored kool-aid"...meaning 1 scoop in a 12 cup brewer, loaded with sugar. i have my own brewer, 2 scoops in a 6 cup maker. light sugar and light cream.
i drink 2 cups and i'm wired.

Maybe it isn't as good as the 2 you listed, but it sure is less expensive! example: 5 lbs of good Colombian Supremo at Coffee Bean Direct is 31.75. At George Howell Terroir, 12 ozs is 14.95. I'm hesitant on discovering if the difference is worth it, since the stuff I get from there is excellent. The Brazilian Santos is what I usually buy. Can't drink the crap from the store, and Starclucks is nothing but burnt beans with a high price. I take a thermos of my own brew. It's better than any fast food sludge.

you ain't kidding!!
the DD i go to is on a major 4 lane road. there is a turnaround about 20 yards up the road from it, so you get eastbound traffic driving down the westbound lane to reach the entrance. the local PD actually set up a big electric sign saying "No access to Dunkin Donuts. Make U-Turn at next light" because it was getting so bad. themn you get a$$hole truckers (not all truckers are a$$holes, but the ones who do this sure are) who will park their rigs right next to the entrance/exit, so you can't see a damn thing when trying to pull out, and people can't get on the shoulder to turn in so you get people slamming on the brakes not paying attention to the person in front of them.
it's madness out there.
my daily drink of choice is lipton hot tea, but i like a nice cup of swamp water every now and then.

|Six Gun Matt||the wife and i are addicted to freshly ground starbucks beans brewed in a french press. i think any freshly ground coffee is way better in a french press, but then again i like my coffee strong.|

And coffee leads to bad things... Got off that junk and went to green tea. Much healthier now
