I'm not a fan of Blue Mountain coffee and I have tried it many times, in many different roasts and brewing methods. I have never understood why people raved about it - and often can't determine which of several coffees it is in a blind tasting. To me it is flat and boring.
I personally like a very robust, dark roast of an assertive coffee variety that actually tastes like coffee and I have found several that fit my criteria.
For me, coffee should be freshly ground just before brewing and I use a single cup pod machine (make my own pods) (Senseo) which are no longer marketed in the U.S. but as I bought backups before they were discontinued, I believe I will be able to continue to brew coffee with this method for the foreseeable future.
Distilled water is NOT good for coffee. FILTERED water - to removed the chemicals that in tap water often interfere with the optimal brewing of coffee is the best in my opinion.
And lastly, I like coffee with a small amount of cream and sugar, my personal taste, because for ME, these complement and enhance the flavor and I enjoy it more that way.
I have for many years collected coffee brewers, coffee apparatus and have tried just about every brewing technique known - including "boiled" coffee with egg shells to "settle" the grounds.
And I agree that Sweet Marias is an excellent online vendor.
I also recommend that coffee fans (fanatics) sign up for a free membership on CoffeeGeek.
Many of my coffee brewers are pictured on my blog on the Vintage Electric (some non-electric) coffee brewers page.
