What kind of coffee beans do you use?

We're trying to cutback on our pricey nespresso habit and switching back to beans for weekdays, so are looking for suggestions. In general, we like full bodied, dark-roasted, oily beans. Not fans of Stumptown, and so far we've tried Gorilla and thought, eh, fine, but not really robust enough. The new Union Market in Brooklyn sells a number of interesting and high-end brands: Counter Culture, Peet's, maybe La Colombe if I'm not mistaken, others I can't recall right now. I'd love your thoughts on these or any others you love. Thanks! Oh, and we're using an auto-drip machine.
