Best Coffee from Supermarket

I don't drink coffee but I know many in my party do, so I'm wondering if anyone could tell me what coffee would be the best to buy at the supermarket and bring to our condo. Any suggestions would help. Thanks!

Many people love Volio. Other good brands - El Rey, Tilawa, 1820. Some of these brands will give you a choice of dark roast, etc. I would stay away from Cafe Britt - it's much more expensive and not any better.

Dear rdangerii

I love 1820...great coffee ...a fraction for what some people pay for the horrible commercial CAFE BRITT...that is marketing is not even close to our good coffee!

From talking with people, the consensus is either 1820 or Volio.

And a hearty laughter whenever Britt is mentioned.

Watch out for cheap brands with sugar already added!

Definitely 1820. Mas X Menos in Jaco Beach has it for approx. $5 = 500 g. (Coffee display is near the cheese/dairy section.) Lisa

As a big coffee drinker myself, I would like to add triangolo oro, for me better than 1820.
