I sometimes like a cup of Colombian coffee.

From what I read in a Google search from ,

The Andes Mountains contain some of the most fertile land on earth.

Not all Colombian coffee comes directly from Colombia.

Read from Coffees from the Americas Here.

Whatever you call it, Java, black death, hot brew, cold brew, coffee, or a cup of joe. It's all mixed up.

Coffee gets mixed up and sometimes the beans are not all from the exact same original farm. That means you never know. I do know Starbucks coffee, when you buy the one flavor you really enjoy and my case, Anniversary blend, It has a consistently pure flavor that is there for my satisfaction almost daily.

Don't forget that if you buy beans, you have to decide what type of grind to make. I use medium ground setting on my coffee bean grinder and sometimes, if I have time, I like to make it really strong by using one of my French Presses. Heavy cream and brown sugar are always good.

I don't know how much the workers in The Americas get paid but I would like to know that they get their own coffee free for their efforts, at least.

I like coffee about as much as the average guy. I'm not into specialty coffees. They tend to be way over priced. I'd rather drink specialty beers. American beer is pretty dreadful stuff, unless it is a specialty beer.

I like the odd cup of filter coffee but I only get it when I am out and about. It is seldom available at home.

I agree about this with the beer. I have tried Guinness and it's about as stout as it gets. I have tried a stout beer from Shiner and Heineken Special Dark. They all have their own special flavor.

I only started at Starbucks when they opened up in store at Albertsons and even then I usually only purchased a medium coffee, but one day I was telling a friend how much I enjoyed coffee at Starbucks and he gave me a 25.00 Starbucks gift card. Before that I used to buy coffee beans at a Sam's club from Hawaii or Colombian coffee in a 10 pound bag for just under 20 dollars. I started drinking this coffee, after using the coffee bean grinder and a Cappuccino/Coffee maker my wife gave me for my birthday over 20 years ago. From that point on I was basically addicted to good coffee as I had always been a Folgers drinker since young adulthood. I am poor and at least I can drink high end beer and coffee. But beer I try to avoid because I am on medications that don't work well with alcohol. I miss the days of Heineken beer. If I had only managed to not over do things I would not be essentially banned from drinking to avoid being divorced by my wife, lol. She has more common sense than I and I respect her for it but still there is always a craving and it never seems to really go away completely.

I am very lucky, I never got any addiction to alcohol and I just decided to avoid it altogether. Now food .... that's a different matter ....
