Tangled Tuesday-Coffee

I love coffee. Seriously love it. I can go a day without eating, but coffee? No way. Cream, no sugar, two cups in the morning and one in the afternoon. My favorite coffee used to be Peet's Sumatra but since I've changed coffee makers (I've gone Keurig) I find that Gevalia French Roast tastes better. Thank goodness for reusable cup filters because buying coffee pods can be quite expensive!

I got to wondering--how many coffee companies are there in the world? The following list doesn't include independent roasters, there are far too many, but check some of these out (and yes, setting these links up took forever, lol). It's my mission to give them a try. It may take me years...or not, but I'll let you know how it goes.

I'm in love with coffee. It's like breathing to me...LOL...although I DO drink water too :) My favorite places to purchase coffee are Boca Java (you don't have to have a membership to purchase or enjoy specials), Coffee AM and Berres Brothers. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into the list. I'm going to check them out!

Basrista is the home of authentic Italian coffee. Like normal coffee, flavored coffee too is rich in both taste and flavor. Integrating amazing taste and innovative flavors, flavored coffee from Barista is one of the best on the menu.

I'll have to try that roaster, Ryon. Not a fan of favored coffee, but perhaps a dark roast :)
