Are you a coffee snob where you have to have a certain brand of coffee or do you just buy what's cheapest? Does everyone in your family drink the same brand or do you have to buy different brands? My sister and her dh both drink maxwell house but her kids drink folgers. In our house we all drink maxwell house.

  • First, When my kids were living at home. They did not drink coffee. I consider that an adult drink.   We drink the same coffee.  The cheapest I will go is Folgers or Maxwell house.

  • I'm not that picky. I actually like the cheap stuff from WalMart ( the arabica)
    I will drink Folgers and others if they are on sale though :)

    I have only had coffee I would call "bad" once really, it was some mexican food place here- we went for breakfast and their coffee was awful!

  • I like Jamaican, but I'll drink anything. My so drinks whatever I have, and hubby hates coffee.

  • I have a keurig, so we drink whatever we like. I like flavored decaf, my husband likes non-flavored regular. The kids didn't drink coffee when they were children.

  • My husband works for Allegro Coffee, so guess what we drink. It's very hard to go away for long periods of time because I do miss good coffee on the road. We are partial to the African coffees, but like the Central American ones too.

  • Yeah, I guess I am a coffee snob. I don't need a certain brand, but I don't drink anything that comes from a can.

  • Yes, I am. I only buy bagged flavored coffee: like Dunkin' Donuts, Godiva, or the Target, Archer Farms, kind. And, I only pair it with flavored liquid creamer.

  • During the holidays I Hoard Starbucks Holiday blend and don't let anyone drink it but me, like if guests come over I pull out the Folgers. So during normal months I drink Folgers Medium Special Roast.
