Give Timothy's Parisian Nights a try. I love that one.

I'm also a fan of Sumatran Reserve, Caribou, Dark Magic. I plan on trying Mohagany, and black tiger.

Having a cup of Dunkin Donuts original blend from a K Cup. It's good, but not worth it... $11.99/14.

To be honest, it tastes a little like Green Mountain's Our Blend.

Thanks for the heads-up on the Dunkin Donut K-Cups. I was getting ready to buy a pack, but I was having a hard time pulling the trigger at the price they're asking. Now, I can save the money!

The Coffee People's - Donut Shop Blend is one of my 3 favorites. I find it hard to believe that the Dunkin Donut Blend could be any better.

I wanted to add that if you have a Lowes nearby you might want to check them out. They had 4 or 5 varieties I couldn't find anywhere else.

Hmm... If your going for a dark blend I would go with:

Timothys Coffee Extra Bold Parisian Nights
Caribou Coffee Mahogany
Caribou Coffee Sumatra
Coffee People French Roast

I also would probably go with that order as well. There are so many different types that it can be quite hard to narrow it down. If your looking for any good place to buy I really like Coffee For Less.

For a dark blend with some strength:
Tully's French Roast
Emeril's Easy Dark Bold
Van Houtte Eclipse
Green Mountain Double Black Diamond

I find the Eclipse to be the strongest of the group. As may be noted, I have no Coffee People coffees on the list since they all taste burned to me.

I'll bet you do seeing as you either work for or own the company.

Yup, it's not bad for the price. About 9.00$ for the box.
