At home we typically just have Caribou K cups around
They make great coffee too. Sometimes I feel as though Starbucks is a little overrated. I mean It's all we really have around here, but wish there were some others.

I had a drink from Starbucks the other morning that was made with coconut milk instead of regular. It was interesting, but probably wouldn't try it again. Gave it a strange after taste.

Been enjoying the McCafe medium blend cups lately. Reasonable too.
I have considered picking some of these up. I think McDonalds has decent coffee. Just never pick up a box. Will have to try it.

I like them. Not too acidic. Walmart usually has good sales on them.

Bought a box of Kauai Coffee dark roast. Trying the first cup this morning. She ain't to bad.

The Great Value (Walmart) 100% Colombian isn't bad either. For a good price too.

I just drink the stuff these starbucks machines in the breakroom spit out.  So, you've reminded me that my cup is empty and needs a refill.

This is what the things look like that we have here (picture is just from internet, not actually the breakroom I am in, ours looks a lot nicer)

I never liked Starbucks regular coffee. Way too acidic for my taste. Perhaps they have a medium blend that I haven't tried though. Anyways, really cool setup though.

I put some creamer in it, but they also have a couple different types of beans.  The hopper on each machine has 2 different beans in it.  Generally here they have normal and a decaf of the same type in each of the 3 machines.  Two of them here have Seattle's Best which is what I typically drink.  I think the one that has Starbucks branded beans has their bean/roast called something like Pike 77

Pretty cool @ndboarder. I knew you had one, but always pictured in my head like a small little Starbucks with hot nerdy baristas running around. You hanging out hitting on the ladies makes SQL jokes to them. " I'll insert my record into your table babe ".

There is an actual coffee shop down in the cafeteria that is essentially a full blown starbucks mixed with some other offerings.  The fancy coffees ain't free though, so I stick to the stuff in the break room.  It's also closer to my desk.

So I think my Keurig machine might be on it's way out. I was up till 11:30 trying to fix it. Seems like the pump quit pumping. I watched a bunch of videos on Youtube about it, I even disassembled quite a bit of it. I think I might partially have fixed it. I was able to make a cup this morning. But I still have my doubts.

I'm really surprised ours has lasted so long. I had my doubts on the thing when we first purchased but it takes heavy use and still goes on.
