coffee gives me the shits... is this normal? I'm being serious. Not even Taco Bell gives me the shits.

Yes. It's acidic, and on top of that it contains caffeine. Recipe for increased... uh... "output".

I cant afford bean anymore. After trying a few brands I was surprised how good Yuban ground coffee is.

10$ and under for a normal sized bag.

I'm not much of a coffee snob, so I just order different varieties of Green Mountain Coffee. It's around $7 a bag, but I have coffee club monthly delivery.

They make K-cups (they own Keurig) as well as whole bean and ground coffee.

OK, I just need a good 10$ gift, and I like food. Can we change it to that? I'd preferably like something at least slightly novel.

Best coffee I've ever had is Blue Mountain (from the Blue Mountains in Jamaica). It was so good that I brought like 10 lbs of it home with me when I was there for spring break about 5 years ago. But it's expensive in the states...I don't know where you can get it or how much it is to buy the grounds, but I know that it's usually $10+ per cup at specialty coffee shops.

For reasonable, we (being our office) really liked the San Francisco Coffee Roaster Kona Blend that used to be at Sam's. It has become unpossible to find. The new substitute (also from Sam's) Pablo's Pride. We have Antigua currently, but the Colombian and their special are both as good.

My favorite as of late has been a medium roasted Ethiopian from my local roasting shop. It almost brews to a hot chocolate color. Incredibly flavorful, rich textured, and smooth.

Ethiopians are my fav as well. For a cheap whole bean 8'Oclock is very good. I get this a lot as my regular drinker.

Dark Colombian is the only way to go. That shit will put hair on your chest considering most posters in here don't have any ;)
