Which place has the best coffee; Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, or Tim Hortons, or Peets?

This is primarily personal preference; and keep in mind that coffee can vary in flavor just by sitting after brewing for a long time, or if you add sugar, creamer, flavorings, etc. to the coffee.

My personal opinion is to rate Starbucks , Peets, Tim Horton, and dunkin donuts as my #1, 2, 3, and 4 picks, for best coffee of the choices presented.

Peet’s coffee is really good, and I enjoyed Kiva Han in Pittsburgh a lot. If we were in Seattle or Hawaii, all bets are off – Seattle has awesome coffee all over the place, and Kona coffee – especially fresh made while visiting Hawaii, is exceptional.

All of these coffee’s can be brewed at home too – they sell their beans, and you can get a burr type grinder to grind them just before you brew, making a superb cup of coffee.  I even grind beans that go into my keurig single cup machine, using  a special, reusable K cup (links to Amazon site).  (Please don’t hate on me for using a Keurig – it’s convenient and gives me lots of choices when brewing just one cup).

I enjoy a good cup of coffee. Disclaimer: I do own some Starbucks stock.

What is the worst coffee shop in Hawaii?

This is a very subjective question, worthy of reflection and ACTION.

Hawaii is the source of legendary Kona Coffee, grown in the rich volcanic soil in Hawaii.  Since I have not, to my detriment, been to many coffee shops in the great state of Hawaii, I believe a field expedition is needed.  NOTE:  The coffee shop above is not nominated or reflective of bad coffee.  I just used their picture.

My goal would be to define “Coffee Shop”, and review as many as possible (being my usual honest and reflective self).

The first series of reviews to be published would be Coffee shops where that is their primary business, not diners or restaurants that serve coffee.
In addition, we would seek out the “Best of the Worst”, serving the most wretched brew that can be served without the health department condemning the business.

I propose we get a kick-starter campaign, or Go fund me, and have a dedicated field expedition to each island and review coffee shops, perhaps 10 a day, focusing on the candidate for the “worst” shop. Part of the money raised can go to the shop for improvements, a website to promote our on-going research, a donation to charity, and supporting the research team.

I would be honored to lead the team in such an endeavor, and if 100 Quorans and interested readers contact me with their desire to fund and participate, I will build the initial website, start the funding effort, and promote the quest!
Fear not, my Hawaiian brethren, we shall (when funded) find the best of the worst!
