Well, just as a little advice for people who need caffeine but are trying to cut down the # of cups - DON'T choose a bolder or more robust flavor! I run into this a lot (lets just say I work in the business) and this becomes a common misconception - Bolder does not equal stronger and more caffeinated! The opposite is true, a house or breakfast blend (described with bright flavors, often the regular or lighter blend) have more caffeine! The longer the beans are roasted, the more caffeine is released! Therefore, if you need less coffee with more caffeine, choose a lighter roast!! Personally, the medium/mild blends taste better, and they definitely deliver the boost people are looking for in the morning!!

Coffee at Take Five at Central Market has seen one price increase in 8 years and a 12 oz cup is still $1.25 (and this includes tax). :D

I drink only Organo Gold. I love it. Helped with my mood swings and with losing weight. I thought it would be nasty at first but I tried it and it taste better than the other stuff I was drinking:
