Coffee is like wine. What one person likes, another person may not like. For me, I prefer a really dark, really bold coffee. French Roast is my favorite, Sumatra is what my DH and I compromise on because he prefers that and French Roast gives him heartburn. I cannot stand mild coffee or light roasts, and yet other people consider those roasts to be "smooth" and they hate what they perceive as "bitterness" in the bolder blends that I prefer.
So I guess short story is that you need to experiment. And IMO the only coffee worth drinking is freshly brewed- as in, it JUST got done brewing. If it sits for very long the flavor changes - significantly, to me. So brew only what you're going to drink.
Personally I'm still a fan of "real" coffee. The stuff in the pods for those single cup brewers just doesn't taste that good. Coffee is only worth drinking if it tastes good, to me.
If you frequent a coffee stand that you like the brew, ask them what kind of beans they use, and what roast. It's a good way to get a feel for what you like. And what you don't.
