I been using 8 O clock for years , They have some new blends just out , One I am currently trying is called Alert , it high caffeine and very dark roast . Another they have added turmeric but I couldn't really tell there was any in it by taste .My son shows up frequently in the afternoon with some brand of coffee for us to have a cup. A couple of days ago he brought in 8 O'clock coffee beans and ground some. For a change it was pretty good stuff. Stout but not bitter.
You could qualify for a job at Starbucks .:tango_face_grin:In an effort to control my diet, I often have Carnation Instant Breakfast (chocolate milk mix) for breakfast. Sometimes I just mix it with skim milk as directed, but often as a variety, I do it differently.
I will take a pint mason jar, put a heaping teaspoon of instant coffee in the jar, an pour just enough hot water on it to completely turn it into solution..then fill halfway with milk.
Then I pit in the Carnation, cap it and shake it up..then add milk to nearly full and shake again.
I use the Mason jar, because they can take the heat & cold.

I drink 8 O'clock nearly all the time (medium roast) because Gevalia is usually light roast where I shop. It's much better than Maxwell House or Folgers.My son shows up frequently in the afternoon with some brand of coffee for us to have a cup.

never thought about ordering coffee off e-bay. think I will look into that. Waffle house use to use a brand named Royal Cup , that I haven't found in supermarkets here. Going to look on e-bay.Eight O'Clock is good stuff.
There is a canned coffee called Farmer Brothers, never saw beans for it, that is one of the best canned coffees I have ever had.
I got curious and looked, now I am surprised this place does not also sell Eight O'Clock but this is a pretty good deal.
When I buy a lot of bagged coffee, I put the extra in the freezer.
Here is a solution to the a pound is not a pound anymore.
That is interesting about dark roast, I guess that is why I generally pick it as it generally is better flavor to me in average coffee. I am going to try medium roasts of better coffees. I am a big fan of Black Rifle Coffee Co for many reasons...There are quite a few ways of preparing coffee, so to each of us, our preference.
Growing up with him, he passed me some of his knowledge: How to recognize different types of grains, the intricacies of blending to achieve the right amount of acidity, body and aroma and last, the degree of roasting. I remember him saying that the darker you roast the grains, both good quality and bad quality grains, even out and that quality grains were never to be roasted beyond medium.
Very good price.https://rhoadsroast-coffees.com/collections/our-indonesian-coffee-collection/products/5-lbs-sumatra-mandheling-gr1-dp-fresh-medium-roast-100-arabica-coffee-beans
