    If I had to choose I'd take the McDonalds coffee first,, the Starbucks 2nd and the other two last.

    I won't let anyone in Canada know you didn't pick Tim Hortons as your first choice.

    If I'm going to pay somebody to make my coffee for me it's going to be a small privately owned local business. They do a better job usually too.

    WhyWhySee saidWhy not go to a coffee shop to get coffee, or brew it at home?


    That's not one of the options! 10 lashes for insubordination!

    I like a good African or Indonesian coffee...Latin American coffees tend to be too acidic for me. I prefer Caribou. I can't believe a real coffee drinker could prefer Dunkin Donuts or Tim Hortons. They taste like "coffee flavored" water to me. I would ask you to do a blind 'smell and taste' test for several coffees. Open a brand new bag of coffee (whole beans preferred)...smell them...gring them and brew them...smell them. Then taste them. If anyone tells me they chose the aroma of DD or TH over Starbucks, Caribou then there is something seriously wrong. I've done blind studies with customers (I'm in the coffee business) and there is a huge difference in smell. The DD and TH whole bean coffee and brewed coffee do not smell nearly as good as their competitors, like Starbucks. Much of the taste of coffee can be determined by its smell. If you prefer those coffees, then you just have been conditioned to like worse tasting...weaker coffees.

    I'm a Caribou fan. For brewing at home I like Peets, which doesn't have retail locations in my area.

    I am pretty sure a turd in hot water would taste better than either of those choices.
    Jesus, get out more and visit your local coffee roaster and get real coffee prepared by people who are passionate about it.

    Definitely prefer brewing coffee at home in my favorite Bialetti moka pot!

    Out of the chains, Caribou Coffee is by far my favorite.

    Oh, the horrors! That's so non-stainless steel, so non-gay sounding. Next you're going to tell me you picked it up at Walmart.

    Those are the shittiest coffee options ever, what is this1998? Ever heard of Stumptown, Handsome or Intellegentsia? Third-wave coffee will change your life.

    Out of those, I only have McDonald's in my town. I am thankful that they decided to do the McCafe or else I couldn't get a good latte anywhere.

    I do like Starbucks when I am out of town.

    At home, I like to buy the bagged Dunkin Donuts coffees.

    No. No Costco anywhere around me as far as I know. Sam's Club - but that's a once in a great while trip because it's at least 3 hours to the closest one.

    Out of those choices, I most often go to Starbucks since it's right down the street and on my way to work. Maybe I'll stop by the locally owned shop this morning since I have a little extra time today.

    What about Wawa?!?! My fave! www.wawa.com - just opened the first of many Florida locations this past July in Orlando. Based in the mid-Atlantic region right now, centered in Philly. Second is McDs. Dunkin I never got a taste for and Starbucks still too strong for me.
