Thanks, I'm all for supporting local roasters but might try it and see how it tastes!

Me too. I used to buy @$29/kg!!!

At some point, it becomes ridiculous.

It's now $35/kg... Sigh!

I hope one day there will be a West Coast Dark Roast normal grind available. I only ever want dark roast, and normal grind would work better with my French press :D

I have not been able to find the decaf anywhere.
Does anyone have another recommendation for a reasonably priced decaf coffee?

You have tried the bigger SDM in your area?
Maybe you will find it at other Loblaws banners: No Frills, RCSS, Loblaws, etc.
But the price might be higher.

The next sale will be from Saturday, February 12th to Thursday, February 17th: $7.99. $9 in the West.

New graphics this time, it seems to be a bag instead of a tin can for the PC coffee.

Yes, it seems like they've changed the packaging. I believe it's a cardboard box instead of a tin. I was initially excited to see this eco friendly development. But after buying one I realized that it cannot be recycled because it has a foil lining.

The new package is 875 grams. It is the same size as the tin container.
I was worried they were doing the smaller size higher price thing that is very common these days.
Well they did do the higher price thing but still is a good price.
Ah inflation.

That's also what I thought: Ouch!

But other coffee prices have or will also increase(d) so still IMHO a great deal because it's good.

Only buy during a 20 X the points event (30% back in points) or during a bonus redemption event (minimum 30% bonus on your points).

In this case, I'd rather get their whole bean coffee for $12.99.

Dang... thought this was dead, since they changed the graphic used for flyers since February (and I hadn't been following this thread -- my bad)! My eyes/brain were trained to look for the old image (Great Canadian can), so the new West Coast Dark image didn't click with me.

I thought I was still only seeing 930g metal cans in stores and haven't seen the new packaging, but maybe I've just been oblivious (haven't been looking for coffee, so wasn't paying attention). Hopefully it'll still be 930g for Great Canadian (I remember when the tins were 1kg), and keep as fresh as the tins.

For coffee-lovers in Western Canada, RCSS is your best bet this week -- $8.99, instead of $9.99 at SDM:

CORRECTION:

The sale will be Saturday and Sunday ONLY: April 23rd and 24th.

Limit of 4. $9.99 after that. $10.99 in the West.
