What once seemed like good cup of coffee now taste like or should I say has no taste except for added cream and sugar. A good thing gone bad. Anyone know where I could buy a good cup of coffee in the Ridley area.

Near Ridley, your choices are limited. I've been to Hobbs Coffee in Swarthmore (they serve Chestnut Hill Coffee last I was there) which is pretty good. There's Burlap and Bean in Newton Square (they roast their own), which I've had decent experiences at as well over the years. There's also Milkboy Coffee and Gryphon Cafe & Coffee Roasters; both were good in my experience as well. For these all of these places, they usually had great coffee to work with (for the most part) but the geek level varied greatly on who was working, so beverage quality seemed to vary. It's been about a year since I've been to any of them but for what I have experienced at each, there is more info on my blog below.
Town Hall Coffee in Merion has been a home run each time I've been. Also, more info on this one on my blog.
As for places that I have yet to go to, There is also Crossroads Coffee in Havertown and Roxborough; they serve Counter Culture but since I've never been, I can't offer any assurance.
And of course in philly you have a nice mixture to choose from.
