One of the hardest things for me to get used to here in Germany has been how undrinkable I find the coffee.
One of the reasons is that Germans make their coffee much stronger than Americans (or at least I) do: when I watched my father-in-law make coffee for us, I saw that he used just on double the amount of coffee that I do. After he started making a pot just for the German and myself, we started being able to drink it, with the addition of milk and sweetener. But still, we didn't actually like the taste of the coffee and there was no way that I would drink it dark or black. I bought coffee from Dunkin' Donuts (by preference) and sometimes from Starbucks, but it was expensive and required special trips (I don't regularly go to either of those places).
Every now and then someone would offer me coffee that they said was good (and expensive), but I didn't think so.
Finally I have found a coffee that is mild and flavorful and it's not expensive: Movenpick 100% Arabica. Yeah! If you miss American coffee, give it a try. It doesn't replace my Jamaica Blue Mountain (to buy that here I would need to be made of money) but it's a good cuppa Joe.
