    Sorry, next time. I was just blown away that Co-op carried so many of the popular local brands (P&S, Rosso, Monogram, Analog/Fratello, etc.). Here I was making my way to each individual store every time I wanted to buy another bag. The day I was there they were all fairly fresh roast dates too, which isn’t always the case at the shops.
    Not every Co-op locations carries the same selection. Were you at the beltline location? That one seems really good. The 16th Ave Renfrew one is very weak.

    All of my March coffee arrived today! Five 250g and two 100g bags. This month, I ordered from Cupping Room (HK), Five Elephant (Berlin) and April (Copenhagen).

    Monogram beans on sale for $16.99 at Co-op at the moment, mostly older roasted stock from Jan/Feb but there were bags roasted just 10 days ago.

    $3 savings from buying direct but not freshly roasted is the downside, Mono is also doing free shipping on orders of 2 bags or more through their online store.

    I wonder if it's going to become harder to find freshly roasted beans. Here's a video about the struggle many smaller coffee shops will face.

    Amazon has 1lb Kicking Horse beans on for $9.99 right now. Probably older stock though.

    That's Monday delivery though... I have a large online order on the way but delayed by Canada Post volumes. Need beans today to get through the weekend.

    I see that Rosso is on Doordash, but with fees and tip a $20 bag of beans becomes $32.

    Accidentally added ground coffee to my grocery order instead of whole beans. Sure reminds me how even with cheapest beans, grinding them fresh makes so much difference.

    This is the cheap coffee thread, right? Anyway, Costco has some beans on sale. Ethical for you rich guys, but I'm running the coffee club and they are fine. Still better than any k-cup or pre-ground crap. Buy some toilet paper while you are there.

    13.49/1.36KG is about $4.50/lb.

    I've only been buying various beans from Monogram for the past few months, good range of variety and top notch all around so haven't ventured away.

    However if Costco were to start selling the blue bag Kauai beans again I would go back to that as a daily drinker and save monogram for the weekend.

    Monogram is also doing cold brews/pre-made jugs as well. Support local!

    Keep an eye on Bodums as they seem to go on sale. Same thing as Chemex for much cheaper and has a metal filter vs needing paper if you like the oils like in French Press.

    I've always used paper filters. What are your thoughts on metal filters? I prefer not to have sediment in my coffee and the cleanup is so easy with paper filters. Plus if you drink lots I hear that metal filters can't remove the oils that contribute to bad cholestorol? But from what I'm reading taste-wise I might prefer the metal.

    We used to use paper when we had a single cup pour over. You already mentioned the benefits of paper, but I will say taste-wise that there is a bit more richness/darkness(not roast darkness) to the coffee, while the paper was slightly "cleaner" tasting. There definitely is a bit more "slugg" at the bottom of cups though, but I find it clumps together and can get the last little bit without drinking it. Or just leave 1/4 cup left like my fiance and leave ten cups around the house

    Awhile back the larger bodum was like $25 I think on Amazon so we hoped on it.

    Initially I had my eyes on the super fancy metal filters from the States but it was just too much cost to be rational about. Like $70 USD or something silly.
