I am a huge coffee gal. Local coffee shops are my go-to and I absolutely rely on a good ole' cup of coffee to start my day.

The more into coffee I get, the more picky I get as well. I'm not sure if it's "picky" or if it's just the taste of good coffee. I used to be a huge Dunkin' Donuts girl until they continuously wouldn't make my coffee right. I learned very quickly that there are so many better places to get coffee. I still appreciate Dunkin' though, it was my go-to for years.

I love getting my coffee at local shops, as I said, but if I need to have a brand on hand for when I need a cup at home, it's good to know which coffee is the absolute best. A recent survey came out about the 6 worst brands of coffee and I was kind of shocked to see the results.

Some don't surprise me, but some have me pretty surprised since they really are so popular. Number 6 on the list is the Kirkland Brand coffee which is Costco's brand. Now if you ask me, I love Kirkland brand stuff, but the article says the reasoning is that their signature coffee has sparked debate due to the opaqueness surrounding the coffee bean sourcing. A few other common names to make the list were Nescafe and Green Mountain Coffee.

But, the brand to take the number one spot was Folgers coffee. The study states that the brand which was once a symbol for coffee culture, was now taken over to a brand which uses shortcuts in quality and ethics for their products. Concerns about freshness and quality is a huge leading factor as to why this was chosen. Folgers is a known brand and is sold in multiple grocery stores around Connecticut.

Now if you're looking for ground coffee but want to shop locally, I will always recommend Candlewood Coffee. They have some of the absolute best coffee and I will never shy away from a bag when I see it at the grocery store.

What are some of your favorite coffee brands? I'm always willing to try new ones.
