Default Almost out of good coffee. Suggestions?

So I've been drinking the costco kona and love it. It's about to run out and all I have left is folgers and 8 o'clock Colombian. I actually like both of those as daily drinking no frills cheap coffee goes.

However, I want to start trying some good stuff and branch out. Don't think I want to pay kona prices though. Hence, I am open to suggestions.

I would love to roast my own one day, but definitely not near ready for that yet, so green beens are out of the question.

Kirkland Guatamalan is really awesome. Right now, I am brewing Kirkland Rawanda which is pretty darn good too, but I am sucker for Central American and Brazilian beans.

I probably should state that I let my costco membership lapse and thus costco is out of the question.

Do you have a Trader Joe's nearby? I like their Columbian for a medium and the Bay Blend for a darker roast.

Get some Regular Coffee and when you put the grounds in the filter take some Cinniamon like a tbl of it in there and smoke either a Padron Maduro, A. Fuente, anything Maduro. I dont think you'll be disapointed.

I think I'll give mr. Jerry a shot. He's a little more than I wanted to spend after the shipping charge, but what the heck. I don't need to buy any cigars for a while anyway.

Uncle Beanz, Killer, Old Bisbee are all good choices. Killer tends to be darker roasted than the others. It depends on your tastes. For a really pleasant blend, try Unc's Negrita.

I enjoyed their Arabian Moch-Java when I bought roasted coffee. Strong but smooth.

Now the CCM Mocha-Java I roast myself is among my favorites.

With a name like Peet, they gotta be cool.

At Unclebeanz, we roast on demand. Our coffee carry
a different profile than you may be accustomed to. Different from corporate coffee and different from those who resell and market it as their own. We roast when you order, not the other way around. Simply try us. You will not be disappointed.

I'll have to give Unclebeanz a try next time. I placed an order with Killer Beans. Jerry was super helpful and very quick to ship. I should have it early next week and I'm looking forward to trying it.

I definitely want to try some unclebeanz in the near future, so I'm sure that my next order will be from him in a month or two.
