Larry, I have no problem with Folgers. We use it from the can, and have for years. Sometimes I think we find value in a product, just because it costs twice as much I buy the Folgers in the 52 oz plastic can and one lasts us about a month.
I've always been a bit of a coffee snob stemming from a very brief, part-time stint as a barista (no, not at "Charbucks").
A few weeks ago, I visited my parents in Florida, and came downstairs following the incredible aroma of freshly brewed coffee the first morning. My parents are -- what shall we say -- thrifty, so I know they don't buy expensive coffee. But this coffee was absolutely wonderful. Rich and toasty, not bitter. It was Folgers 100% Columbian.
Has anyone tried McDonalds Green Mountain/Paul Newman gourmet coffee? I think that is very good also, but I tried purchasing the beans to make at home. The product is not offerred! I'm so surprised.
