August Brewed - Coffees Consumed

Coffee Beans
Family, work, school, and a friend's wedding is where a lot of my time was invested in August, but I did listen to some talk shows, and coffee consumption was a daily occurrence as usual.

With the 31 days of August 2011 now history, let's take a look at the coffees I consumed!

Coffees Consumed in August
Folgers Custom Roast - This was a 270 coffee cup container purchased in July.  It lasted us until about the middle of August, and I enjoyed it while it lasted.
Seattle's Best Coffee Organic House Blend - This was a blend my wife purchased me as a surprise back in June, and it has survived since then.  I checked just tonight, and there is still some coffee left in it, probably enough for another 6 cup pot.
Tully's Bold Coffee French Roast - This was a Keurig coffee pod that I brewed up in one of my friends' Keurig coffee machine.  It had a good solid flavor to it, and filled my cup up to the top.
Trader Joe's, Joe's Dark Coffee - This is a "coffee by mail" story.  Reader, and fellow blogger, Charlie mailed me this container of coffee.  It's a whole bean coffee, so I have been using our coffee bean grinder every few days and making a few cups.  I will probably ration this coffee out so I can try to make it lasts a little while.  A huge thanks to Charlie for the coffee, and I have been thoroughly enjoying it!
Maxwell House French Roast - My wife purchased this container of coffee in August, after going about 2 months without purchasing any Maxwell House coffee blends.  So far, it's
Two Cups of Starbucks - I flew out last Friday, August 26, to be a friend's wedding.  After staying up super late Thursday night doing schoolwork, then waking up early Friday morning to leave, instead of brewing the coffee before I left, I decided I would just grab a cup of coffee at the airport.  After getting through security, I went to a Starbucks in the airport, and purchased just a "tall" house blend.
One Cup of Seattle's Best Coffee - On my connection flight down to Louisiana, I decided to give Delta Airlines' in-flight coffee a try.  They serve Seattle's Best Coffee, and the coffee was definitively piping hot.
Community Coffee Dark Roast - This coffee was provided by the hotel we stayed at for the wedding.  Being that the wedding was in Louisiana, it makes sense that Community Coffee was provided, because Community Coffee Company is based in Louisiana.

Filtered Thoughts
In total, I consumed eight different coffee blends in August, not counting one iced "coffee" drink. As for the iced "coffee" drink, it was something I had not purchased in many years, basically since moving to North Carolina; more on the iced "coffee" drink later though!

Questions
What coffee blends, or other beverages, did you find yourself consuming in August?
