Good coffee, cheap

Good coffee, cheap

I don't know if there are other coffee snobs out there, but my husband and I are both shameless. In looking at our monthly expense sheet, we spend A LOT on coffee. I will buy generic anything except coffee...I'm really picky about my beans. Even the "premium" supermarket coffees like Millstone and the like don't cut it; I usually stick with Starbucks. They have good deals on whole bean coffee at Costco and Sam's Club but I let my membership lapse because with only two people in our family I don't think we are getting our money's worth out of our membership. The other night I was at Marshall's and I wandered over to their gourmet section (Okay, I was looking for candy). They had a huge array of gourmet coffees, some whole bean, some ground. By sniffing and shaking I was pretty much able to tell which ones were "choice" -- looking for strong coffee smell, not flavoring, and heavy, oily beans. I got two bags, different kinds, and both were awesome. I paid $4.99 for a 12-oz bag and $5.99 for a one-pound bag. This is a savings of over three dollars a pound when compared to standard prices for Starbucks beans or comparable. Just thought the coffee fiends might like to know about an unlikely supplier.
