    I use to work for Coffee Beanery. They had some WONDERFUL flavored coffees. But they are also VERY expensive last time I checked. Too, you get what you pay for.

    A local store just started carrying "Seattle's Best". Started out with their 'Cinnabon' then tried 'Chocolate Toffee' now, "Creme Brulee'; not too fond of it. Think I'll go back to the Choco toffee. What about other coffees. Anyone have a fav?

    Just so you know - Seattle's Best got bought out by none other than Starbuck's.

    So what does that mean? They're going to change the coffee? Doesn't like competition? If I liked Starbuck's I'd be buying Starbuck's.

    Seattle's Best Coffee is anything but - especially if it's getting made at Cinnabon.

    Starbucks is decent but expensive. I only drink it when I'm out of twon and there's nothing else available.

    My place is a local place called Endicott's Coffee. Great stuff. I also like Martin Henry's and Austin Chase.

    I like The Second Cup, and Timothy's. My favorite flavor is Medium Pardiso.

    Starbucks also bought Torrefazione, my favorite coffee. Their dark roast may be the best coffee bean I ever bought....and now they are gone (sigh)
