I love strong coffee, but don't have the wherewithal to grind it fresh in the morning. I usually get a huge can of store brand Columbian, but when I want something special (strong) I get Mediglia d'oro. In fact, I may need to get some for the weekend. Like being on speed. I keep beans for when I run out. Then I have a little grinder. Too loud for my early morning head. By the way, Mediglia d'oro also makes the only instant coffee that tastes like real brewed. If I know I'm going to be somewhere that I won't have coffee available as soon as I wake up, I take that and an immersion heater with a coffee mug.
When my kids were little, I used to get the kind you grind in the store. The way the store was set up, it is the last stop before checkout. After grinding it, I would pass the bag around as many times as the kids wanted and we would each put our nose in the bag and inhale deeply. Ahhhhhh. What a fond memory that is! Haven't thought of that for a while.
