Default K Cup recommendations

Just wanted to get some ideas for some good coffee.

I currently drink the following:

Mostly Green Mountain Coffee:

Dark Magic
Double black diamond
Newman's Own Organic
Espresso

I prefer the Extra Bold coffees or dark roast. Any others worth trying?

I like a large cup of coffee, so Donut House in the Travel Mug size and Kona Blend extra bold

Obsidian- Full bodied dark roast with a strong dark chocolate taste. I have only seen it at Target.

I use Big Cat Coffees but I order like 500 at a time. If you want to try smaller amounts of different blends they do sampler packs. 50 cents per is what I shoot for price wise.

IMO, the list you have is pretty good. The Newman's Own Organic Extra Bold is my favorite of any of the KCups right now.

My favorite right now is the GM Kona Blend. Their Sumatran Reserve is good too.

Bed Bath and Beyond is great and you can use 20% off coupons that they incessantly send in the mail. You can get them for less than .50 cents a cup with the coupons.

Hopefully Amazon comes to their senses and puts the prices back to what they were before the holidays. The boxes of 50 were ~$22, so less than $.45 each. Even less if you signed up for the auto deliver.
