steal.... i mean borrow some coffee bags from said High end hotel.
Try grinding your own coffee beans - it truly makes a huge difference. The type of coffee maker makes a difference too. One that just dribbles hot water through coffee grounds (called drip coffee) will not have that flavor of an espresso machine which pressurizes the grains and exposes the water to it for a much shorter time. try this website: http://recipes.howstuffworks.com/question645.htm
use a dirty coffee maker and put it in the bathroom.
You need good fresh coffee. If you know a place that sells beans ask them for their opinions (they'll surely fresh-grind some for you and bag-it).
Then you need a machine of sorts - that depends upon the type of coffee drink you want - ask them about that.
