Whether you take it light and sweet or dark and unadulterated, we all have our favorite brand of coffee.  If you’re tired of your current home brew or just want to try something new, have a look at some of our member reviews before your next trip down the coffee aisle. 

Community Coffee 
Members describe this coffee as bold and not at all bitter.  The Louisiana based company offers a variety of coffee flavors (including the New Orleans favorite coffee and chickory) that would suit any coffee tradionialist as well as gourmet lovers. Tea lovers are also covered as Community Coffee offers all types of herbal blends, incuding Earl Grey and English Breakfast.  Member pattycake70 writes of the coffee and tea, “Have loved both the coffee blends and tea that Community sells. Too many great tasting flavors to choose from though!!!!”

Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee
Definitely our most popularly reviewed coffee with more than 100 SheSpeaks reviews and counting.  This coffee gets a little over 4 stars out of 5 with many member saying they love the dark rich flavor and drink it daily.  Member sakana writes of the flavors she’s tried, “I tried the dark roast and was surprised by it! It had a good, rich flavor. I just bought the regular roast (and am drinking a cup right now), it's not quite as good - a little tinny. I definitely recommend the dark roast, though!”  Most members have only positive things to say about the Dunkin’ Donuts brew available in grocery stores, but a few find that it has a burnt unappealing flavor. 

Cafe Bustelo
You can’t beat the value on this coffee, with the price of 10 ounces going for about 3 or 4 bucks.  If you like your coffee extra strong, you will probably love this dark Cuban blend coffee which also works to make espresso  (without the expensive machine).  Claudinew writes of the coffee, “I love this coffee. My dad got me hooked on it about a year ago. I use it in a french press and it comes out great.”

Have you tried any of these coffees?

    I use peets coffee. I like strong coffee and peets seems to be the best brand for making a nice strong cup without having to use half the bag of coffee.

    Pilon espresso in my Breville Espresso maker...I can't live without either of them. Pilon coffee, like bustello, is cheap but delicious. and the Breville Espresso maker is a great value at $320 (with a 20% off coupon at BB&B) It is very high quality for its price.

    My husband's favorite it Tim HOrton's Coffee. SImiliar to DD that is it from a Donut shop we have to get it at a Wegman's food store. He likes it so much we drive 1 hr to the closest store. I bit stronger than DD coffee but I am starting to convert as well.

    used to only prefer coffee from a coffee maker, but have learned that instants can be more eye opening. And that is the whole purpose of my drinking coffee in the mornings or otherwise. I like it with cream and sugar. YUM!

    I like the Dunkin Donuts coffee as well, but find myself buying folgers more often. More bang for the buck.

    I just picked up a bag from Star Bucks Iced Coffee Ground Brew. WOW for $13 this coffee is strong and delicious. You fill half of your machine with water, 4 scoops of grounds and then fill half the picture with ice. As the coffee brews it becomes cold with the ice in the picture. I am a fan of DD iced coffee every morning but at $2.48 every day I decided to try another route. I am going to look for these other brands Basilandcatnip where do you get RaceTrac's Molten Java, that sounds good. I really want a Keurig but I already have a Tassimo. I do like how there are way more varieties to choose from. FrillyFabulous I do love the coffee press too I am going to your link right after this post. I am going to have to try the coconut iced coffee that sounds great. girl17 way to spice up a normal coffee, I do mine with Irish Creme. Lauralee I am going to get that chocolate syrup from Trader Joes, sounds like something I would love to add to my daily iced coffee I make at home.

    I like missyvecc, am from the eastern coast and SOOO miss the DD, living in California no DD shop or donuts (:-( ) and the only way to get the coffee is to buy it in the store. I love any DD flavor of coffee but recently I tried the "Folgers Gourmet Chocolate Truffle" and I think this chocolate flavor by far blows away the DD. It has a deep, rich taste, strong but good, not bitter just hearty for a chocolate flavored coffee.
