I've branched out. I use to be a Folger's only coffee guy. Now, I've branched out and look for a rich smelling, bold dark coffee. This week it is a 5 pound bag of Daily Chef...100% arabica beans. I also now grind my own beans. That smell from grinding is better than any other smell, early in the morning.

You should pick up another order from Mattius, our Costa Rican friend!
With that community offline I would be hesitant to ask, but I will see what he says.

Has anyone tried the Panamanian coffee? Someone I knew traveled there went and fell in love with their coffee.
I have not, but will keep an eye out for it.

I work at a coffee & spice plant & tried everything they make.
Do not like the hazelnut. I drink cinnamon pastry,french vanilla,caramel creme, but mostly medium or dark roast coffee.
My DW likes instant coffee drink lines.
I like Nicaragua coffee best, fell in love with the whole country the week I was there.
I also drink Greek & Middle Eastern coffee that I get at yearly festival.
The Central Americans make their coffee rich, dark & strong, but I love it for some reason.
I believe you should eat the local cuisine, even if you do not drink the water.
I had no problem, was not sick & it was less hot then here in South Carolina, it was a dry heat.

As for Arabica beans, most teas & coffee are a blend, because some are bitter & others taste like soil when left as a solo bean. Most companies use a few cheap filler beans in their blend, no matter what they tell you.
Even the $10.00-$20.00 a pounds coffee. True Kona is a blend of different kona's, so it is a blend of kona.
It cost is high be cause it is only grown on one little Volcano & when crop falls below a limit, you can be without any for the year.
It is my understanding that there are 6 or so coffee in this group that are very costly.
But I do not purchase coffee for my company, so most of this is hear say,second hand.
Feel free to add your two cents worth.
