I like my coffee, but I'm a bit of a fan of what's easy 'cause I live with The Pomeranians and none of them knows how to brew a cup of coffee for me.
What works out to be easiest for me is to buy pound-sized bags of Dunkin' Donuts coffee, and that's because I almost never drive during the week -- I walk to my train, to my office, etc.
I pass by many Dunkin' Donuts shops during my daily walks, so I pick up ground or whole bean coffee there.
I have a coffee grinder and if I'm feeling ambitious I'll use the whole bean stuff. I go through the ground stuff quickly enough, though, that I don't really notice a difference 'cause the ground coffee doesn't have time to get stale.
I use Dunkin's for a couple of reasons: (1) I love it; it's not too strong and not too weak; and (2) it's very easy to get, 'cause I'm always walking by the shops.
As a backup I also keep: (1) a big jar of Maxwell House instant coffee on hand and (2) a small, emergency-replacement size jar of Maxwell House instant on hand.
I started drinking Maxwell House instant coffee in third grade, so it has a lot of sentimental value to me and I'm very used to it.
I have fond memories of some early-morning breakfast chats with my mother in those days: ". . . I need another cuppacoffee please, Mah, 'cause we're having a phonics test today!!!"
