Over Roasted Coffee


Out on the market right now, there is so much over roasted coffee. Starbucks, Seattle's Best, Pete's Coffee area all very dark and over roasted. I prefer other brands such as Eight O'Clock, Coffee Bean, and Dunkin' Donuts. Hell, even McDonalds has better drip coffee than Starbucks, or should I say "Char-Bucks"!

I found a great article Nicholas Thompson on Huffington Post explaining why they do this.

Eight O'Clock is pretty nice when it comes down to it. We might pay 5 bucks for a container that will last over two weeks since we are not always drinking coffee. I think when it comes to Starbucks you are only paying for the name and the sweet stuff they use, not much else goes into their stuff.
