When I was in Chicago a few weeks ago, I had a wonderful pot of French press coffee from Intelligentsia - a Kenyan variety that Alinea served.
So, being eager to buy some of this coffee, I checked out their website - and I'm in utter disbelief at the prices.
As a comparison, the Whole Foods coffee I get is $11 for 1.5 pounds - and it is excellent stuff.
The Kenyan variety from Intelligentsia is $29 for a freaking single pound! Huh??!!
If you get the generic "dark roast", it's still $16 for a pound.
Please help - what am I missing here?
