Good freshly roasted coffee to buy and make at home?

What are your favorite coffees to take home? Perhaps something from Porto Rico (or the other place on Christopher street)

I like coffee's dark and rich. (Joe's brand is very good; haven't tried Jack's; Doma is good but overrated).

The Wintry Blend from Trader Joe's is amazing, but I'm looking for a new, dark roast to grind at home and use in my cafetiere (italian) to make Americanos.

Thanks!

  1. Porto Rico is my favorite-also Trader Joe's

    1. I like Porto Rico's French roasts. I generally don't like their non-French roasts. Even their flavored French roasts are good. (It is because I prefer the dark roasts, not due to the quality of their beans.)

      1. Anything in particular at Porto Rico?

        Also at TJ's, I tried Bay Blend but have been a little disappointed. It doesn't blend in the cafeteire as well as, say, Lavazza's freeze-dried bags.

        1. I really like McNulty's coffee - 109 Christopher St. Their coffee is excellent, and they also have a wonderful selection of teas.

          1. I have been addicted to an organic Galapagos Islands coffee from Fairway.(130th) It's on the mild side, but it is wonderful!
