Where to get coffee beans that won't break the bank but taste good? San Francisco transplant needs help.

I've just moved to Toronto from the San Francisco Bay Area, where I've been spoiled with excellent coffee beans available from the supermarket. I'm trying to find a source of beans that are as good as what I'm used to -- Peets, for those of you who are familiar with it, or Trader Joe's French Roast -- for less than $10/lb. Is this possible?

I've been drinking Medaglia d'Oro, which I can live with. Yesterday I made the mistake of trying President's Choice in a can. Oops.

I keep thinking there must be something better. Where do you get good, full-bodied, tasty, eye-opening beans? Pre-ground is ok.
