We Want to Have a Coffee Klatch with You


Here at The Food Channel, we’re planning to run a series soon on the subject of Coffee in America. But as we begin to let our ideas percolate, we’d like to hear from you, our site users. What are you drinking these days? Have your caffeine habits changed as a result of the current economic crunch, rising food and gas prices?

As always, we want our stories to be relevant to your needs and interests. That’s why we want your input. Please consider the coffee-related questions posed here and provide your thoughts in the Comments section below. Your input can be as short or as long as you’d like. (You must be registered to comment. It only takes a few seconds.)

Coffee drinkers tend to be passionate about their brew…and we expect nothing less from you. So, pour yourself a cup and speak your mind.


  • Have you cut back on your trips to high-end specialty coffee shops (such as Starbucks)?
  • Have those lattés and cappuccinos become more special occasion drinks rather than a daily habit?
  • If you can’t go to a big bucks coffee shop, what’s the next best thing?
  • Are retail coffee brands getting better? Are they now closer to specialty coffee shop quality?
  • What are your favorite coffee brands in the supermarket, and why?
  • Do you grind coffee beans? In the grocery store, or at home?
  • Do you use flavored creamers and sweeteners to improve coffee flavor?
  • Do you brew some brands stronger than others? Why?
  • Has McDonald’s coffee improved enough to make your acceptable set? Burger King?
  • Do you have any input on the coffee served at your workplace? How happy are you with the quality? Is it free, or do you have to pay for it? How do you feel about that?
  • How do you feel about coffee in terms of health? Are you trying to cut down? Drink decaf? Switched to green tea?

These are merely thought-starters. If you’d like to suggest a different way to approach the topic of coffee, we’d be very interested in your opinion.

Food Bloggers: Have you written a recent post on coffee? Send it along for our consideration. We may want to publish it on The Food Channel.

Thank you. We hope to hear from you soon.
