Bokar coffee discontinued What's your substitute?

I have been drinking this for decades, having been introduced to it by my mother who's own mother drank it. Imagine my chagrin upon finding it gone. I always bought in bulk, so I missed the announcement. I called the company which wasn't helpful, they said it was a matter of numbers. Sad, the mystique of 8 O'Clock brand is due to the way this coffee won blind tastings all over.

So I guess there will be a shrinking number of us using up what we find remaindered in stores, and then nothing. The coffee that went with Peary to the north pole!

Anyone find a good replacement?
