To each his own, but ya gotta get off that McD's coffee. Try your local coffee shop and see what they have. I have always enjoyed the Costa Rican beans.

The Newark Star-Ledger conducted a taste-test some time back. On a curve, Starbucks rated a 10, and Dunkin's a 7. MickyD came in at a lowly 3. But if you like it, enjoy it.

Aside from the Costa Rican peaberry, I like Kenyan. You can get Mayorga beans from JRs at about $10/lb.

That's wild, I'm just the opposite... MD is like water to me, while DD is morning bliss. I say drink what you like, besides that MD's prices are hard to beat, especially if you like it.

If like it stick with that. I drink my coffee black. I have to add 2 sugars for McD coffee to be tolerable.

Sweet Maria's.com and a french press. You'll wonder why they make coffee any other way after that.

To each their own, so if you enjoy it, awesome!

However, the one time I got McDonald's coffee it tasted like burnt a$$ to me. I actually like DD coffee, but the DD near my house closed this month. If I drink coffee I just brew my own now.

Having said that, McD's iced coffee isn't that bad. I get it when I occasionally get an egg mcmuffin. I just can't stand the hot coffee or any of their McCafe stuff. Hah
