    Local chain (Harris Teeter) has their own line of coffee. Don't know who makes it for them but they now carry a Toasted Almond ground. It's pretty good, ranks up there with their Southern Pecan and Kona.

    In an earlier post, I said black, but now I throw in some Stevia with it.

    Whole beans grinded myself. Usually medium roast and brought on strong by my Bialeti Moka pot. A little milk and sugar and off I go.

    Before I got on the cops, I never drank coffee. As a FNG, after the Academy it was off to 3rd shift. So, out of self defense I started drinking it. Regular. So after a couple of years while working with my best friend and eventual best man, I had a coffee epiphany. One night around 0300 we stopped for coffee at the only all night diner in town. It was my turn to "buy" so I went in and placed my order. The waitress was a nice older Scottish lady. Most times I never watched as she made up the coffees, but that night I did. We both drank our coffee regular, so as I watched she put 3 tablespoons of sugar in. I tipped her and went back out to the radio car. Told my buddy what happened and he was like, "No way". So next night he went in. He came back and said, "From now on we drink our coffee light no sugar!" Been drinking it that way ever since.

    I grind dark roast beans every morning and make my coffee with a French press. I haven't used a drip machine for years. I drink the coffee strong and black.

    I LOVE coffee. I didn't use to drink it but my wife is a aficionado to say the least and she got me turned on to it. I don't like it real sweet though. I put maybe 2 tablespoons of sugar with a dab of cream into a cup. Just enough to add some sweetness but not enough to mask the natural bitter taste of the coffee. I'm not big on any particular brand, if it's decent I'll drink it
