are the no ground coffee comments just coffee snobbery as in if its not ground 2 seconds before brewing its not any good? or is there some other reason to avoid ground coffee?
Apparently the taste has a lot to do with the aroma, and ground coffee loses its aroma to the atmosphere, so the more recent the grind the better all things considered.

I just price checked this against Target because Target is offering 30% off in-store cartwheel but none of my local stores carry this brand. Ordered a bag on S&S, hope it's good! Thanks for post.
$11.99 at Target before 30% off this is a better deal.

For a few seconds there, I thought that little logo was the sigil of House Stark on a coffee bag...

This ground coffee is as disappointing as finding out Bran is the new king.

Just kidding it's pretty good. The coffee, not the ending of the show; that was terrible.

I've had this coffee... it's definitely good. Unfortunately, it's not whole bean.

Great coffee though!
I think they mean the tobacco part?

Peet's Major Dickason drinker here (grind their whole beans at home to Aeropress): is this just as comparable in taste? Thanks in advance.
I don't think they taste the same. I always think of PMD as one of the lightest in flavor/complexity of the popular dark roasts. It even lags being Mayorga whole bean you can buy at Costco.

I would rank kicking horse above PMD and then Koffee Kult above that. I've brewed all the same (whole bean grind with pour over)

I'm not a coffee snob by any means (I'm actually quite a cheap bastard, so the more value per dollar the better).

That being said: switching to pour over from drip has been a huge change in coffee flavor and quality (i tried an aero press and it yielded the same quality for me as a pour over, so i generally think they're the same); equally as important switching from pre-ground to whole bean. For starters, just get a cheap blade grinder for $18 on amazon and try a bag of whole bean for yourself. You will tell a difference (at a very low risk and cost to try)

Snobbery aside, I truly think there is a big difference between pre-ground and whole bean.

Please tell me this is somehow incorrect.
It's all incorrect because it is subjective with ambiguous adjectives. Only your six dollars can enable a true test....if you are still interested

Not at all. I am learning about coffee from my son who is an expert, and he explained what the terms mean in plain English since I was not tasting the described flavors of "earthy" or "fruity."

K cups really rob you of any flavor. There just isn't enough coffee grinds per water to really make great tasting coffee (couple that with questionably freshness of k cup shelf life). I used to use the mesh filter k cups too and added pre-ground to see if I could kick it up a notch; but honestly k cups will never yield a good cup of coffee that you're going to enjoy (because of the small coffee grind to water ratio). At that point, it really wouldn't matter about the type of grind or even type of coffee. K cups are awesome if you just need to brew and go to work.

The closest I've gotten is taking 2 dark roast pods and brewing them on the smallest cup setting. This way you're squeezing the most coffee flavor with the smallest amount of water you can.

This title reminds me of the 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS with the monster 454 cubic inch motor, with 425 horse power. Arguably the fastest muscle car ever made. They demand big money at auction. Very hard to find.
