Need a stronger Keurig coffee

I've had the mini Keurig for about a year and I've tried various k-cup coffee brands and flavors. I haven't found a brand or flavor that is strong enough for me. It seems like after I add a bit of cream to my coffee, I can't taste the coffee or the flavor. I love the keurig machine, its quick and I'm the only one in family that drinks coffee. Any k-cup brands suggestions?

Snowflake coffee cups

My mother loves McDonald's large coffee cups and I would like to get ten or so for her for Christmas. What's my chances of going into a McDonald's and talking to a manager to see if they'll sell me the cups without the coffee inside (ideally for less then the full price)? [more inside]

What non-toxic material is best to fix a coffee pot?

I have a leak in my coffee pot's water tank, and upon examination, I cant see where the leak is coming from (meaning that the whole bottom generally gets too wet to detect the crack). I was thinking I would run a thin bead of some kind of material around the bottom of the tank to attempt to seal it back up. My question is: what kind of material would you recommend that would not pose any toxin problem in case the tank water comes into contact with it? It would also have to be generally heat tolerant as the coffee pot heats up under there.

Gone off coffee, want back in

I love coffee, but it's getting hard for me to find coffee I like which doesn't break the bank or make me ill. Dark roasts smell like burnt sweat socks to me, and lighter roasts are too acidic/sour. I used to be okay with medium-to-light roasts that were "breakfast blends" or which were nutty/chocolatey/spicy rather than fruity/winey (according to the vendor's descriptions) but lately that system has let me down and all coffee seems too acidic/sour. Why have I "gone off" coffee, and what other coffee (bean/roast/brewing method) should I try? [more inside]

A thermos to keep coffee fresh and hot

I hate fast instant coffee. I will be traveling by car from Toronto to Montreal. There are lots of stops where one can get Tim Hortons or McDonald's instant coffee. Unfortunately/fortunately I don't like their coffee. I can make good coffee at home. What type of thermos can keep it fresh and warm for a good portion of my trip?

Delicious Non-oily Trader Joe's Coffee?

Delicious Non-oily Trader Joe's Coffee? We use a superautomatic machine and "dry" or at least non-oily beans work best. We use and love Stumptown Hair Bender but think maybe we should at least try something else from time to time. Trader Joe's seems to have a wide variety of whole bean options at reasonable prices, but I can't see into the cans to determine which ones might be appropriate for our use. Can anyone recommend one of the TJ options for being both tasty and relatively "dry" of bean?

Suggestions for low-key things to do in London?

I'm going to be in London on business for a week, and I may wind up with a couple of afternoons to myself. I don't have a burning need to do lots of sight-seeing while I'm there -- I'll probably be quite jetlagged during that free time, since it will occur at the beginning of my trip -- but I'd love any suggestions of absolute must-sees, quiet spots where it would be nice to sit and read, or lovely bookstores or coffee (tea?) shops.

Am I ruining my drip machine?

I make my morning coffee in a French press, but then I keep it hot by pouring it into the carafe of my drip machine while it's switched on. Is this somehow going to damage my coffee maker if I don't have any water in the reservoir? I just want the hot plate to keep it warm. Relevant info: I have the Michael Graves coffee maker from Target.
