A few weeks ago, I visited St. Lawrence market for the first time and my husband loved the mexican coffee at this gourmet coffee shop. I returned today and bought him a pound. It cost $13.99/lb. Not a coffee bean buyer (he normally drinks Folgers or Hills or Tim Horton's), I'm not sure if this is an average price or not for mexican organic free trade coffee?
Would Second Cup be a good place to buy beans as well (he doesn't like Starbucks)?
Lastly, the woman at the counter told me the best container to store the beans would be a small ceramic container with a seal and metal hook. I've tried looking at Cayne's, Wal-Mart and Kitchen Stuff Plus, but couldn't find one. Any ideas? I live uptown but don't mind to drive around for great food and food related items!!
TIA(thanks in advance)!
