Welcome to "Black Coffee Review", a partner Weblog to our HubPages article with the same name. This Weblog is about coffee without the additives like sugar, cream, mocha, etc...!
We like our coffee in its regular not unleaded form. Straight black and piping hot keeps us happy.
Our intent is to try coffees offered by restaurants, fast food chains, and specialty coffee houses and post our thoughts about them.
Needed a change of pace,... meaning "noisy" background. So, stopped at the local Starbucks to do some work and have a cup of coffee. This round went with the Medium Roast. It was fresh brewed so it made the Good Cup of Coffee grade! Still had more work to do when the cup was finished, so went "fu fu" and ordered a Cappuccino. Not bad, not bad, actually liked it despite being the hard core black coffee drinker. Did learn about Starbucks Verismo Coffee Maker. Sales Lady was working the crowd well to make sales! Interesting concept, special deal made sense,... may need to try it out some time.
In need of more coffee for the pantry, picked up a can of Maxwell House. Have had their coffees before but not their Master Blend. This one makes a Good Cup of Coffee like the other ones we have tried.
Late night last night back in College Station, Texas... needed a pick me up. Decided on a cup of coffee to go with a Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs meal at Denny's. This one get's an It'll Do Rating; nothing memorable about this one.
On the road today, stopped at a gas station for gas and a cup of coffee. This was from Love's Gas Station in Fairfield, Texas. It's their House Blend - Mild made from Latin American Arabica Beans. This one gets an It'll Do Rating. Something did not impress us enough to rate it as a Good Cup of Coffee.
Refilled the pantry with an offering from Community Coffee. This one is a medium-dark roast called the Colombia Classico; easily earns a "Good Cup of Coffee" rating! Strong like their other blends but not overpowering. Of the choices from Community Coffee, going to keep this one on the top of the list!
On the road this week. Passing through Durant, OK needed a coffee break. Stopped at the gas station - Choctaw, Too. Like the Casino, they also serve Henderson Coffee. Went with the Premium Blend... Hit the spot. Get's a "Good Cup of Coffee" rating!
