There's nothing like a good cup of joe.

Testers spent weeks brewing, sniffing, and sipping Colombian flavored coffee to find the best.
Results showed 100 percent Columbian brands like Folgers Coffee House Series tasted like wet wood and cardboard. And pricer boutique brands like Starbucks and Peet's tasted burnt and bitter.
Turns out, Eight O' Clock Coffee 100 percent Colombian received the highest ratings among the bunch.
