The next morning I tested out this coffee. I hadn't had coffee in probably 20 years. That morning I also had a pretty emotional discussion with a friend who needed a lot of help. I noticed that I had an unusual amount of energy. I thought it was just because of my emotions. As the morning went along I found myself wanting to run places instead of walking. I went to Walmart and I was tapping like crazy on a CD case while I was waiting in line. Then it finally dawned on me - Caffeine. The coffee was delicious and I was hooked.
Ever since that day, I've been trying small amounts of different types of coffee. My wife's cousin got me a Starbucks sampler for Christmas. So far Kenya is my favorite. At church I really like Maxwell House French Roast with some Nestle French Vanilla Creamer. I even like Folger's, though I tried the decaf and didn't care for it too much.
I went to Starbucks and tried a latte and had some Snickerdoodles on the side. I must say the Snickerdoodles were really good, but I think I will stick with my Maxwell House for now.
I've heard recommendations for Bongo Java from Nashville and Intellegentsia from Chicago, but I've yet to try either. When I run out of my Starbucks Sampler I think I'll give them a try.
For the Java Joe's and Jane's out there, what do you recommend?
