Tell Us About Your Favorite Cup of Coffee

Patch wants to know what you love to eat and drink in area restaurants.

Remember those vending machines that would spit out a paper cup and dribble a watery, coffee-like beverage into it? Well, no more. Our coffee standards have changed radically in the last decade, and we expect a quality brew even in a drive-through.

So Patch wants to know — what's your favorite place to get coffee? We're not talking lattes or espresso (topics for another day) but just your basic cup of joe. Do you prefer the consistency of a Dunkin' Donuts or a Starbucks, or are you devoted to a small shop that grinds its own beans? 

Is it the caffeine you crave, or the ritual of sitting down with something warm? Is the coffee you make at home better than what you can find at a restaurant, or vice-versa?

Each Tuesday, Patch will throw out a different category of food or drink and ask you to tell us about your favorites. So join in and let's see what kind of coffee comes out on top!

Pralines & Coffee Beans ... Banana Hazelnut...no kidding it is great! And a scoop of ice cream on the side!

Starbucks, West Hartford Center - tall soy no whip mocha. Regular, non foo foo coffee - my eclectic stash of gifted grounds at home.

Coffee Trade is the place to go. I always get a black decaf. Joan asks me why I bother! It's because it's so good I don't NEED to dress it up. The aroma of the roaster, especially late in the afternoon when Dick is doing the French roast is enough to get you going for the rest of the day! And the gifts and antiques are fun to browse.

If this was a contest, I would declare Coffee Trade the winner. They have some loyal customers!

Coffee Trade roasts their own beans. 'can't get any fresher than that. My second choice is Abigail's in Simsbury. Sunday morning brunch and a great cup of coffee.
