Best pre-ground espresso (affordable) to buy in Guy-Concordia area

Right now I have been buying Van Houtte Venetian. It's really not bad. However I'd like to try something different, without breaking the bank either. The Van Houtte is about $10 for 10.5 oz.

I don't mean to offend espresso connoisseurs with the 'pre-ground'... But I'm just a student and can't afford a $200 espresso grinder. Moreover, if I were to spend that money, I ought to put it toward a new espresso machine altogether as mine is a 10+ year hand-me-down (that has been brought into repair numerous times) LOL But it actually works great and makes a great latte.

So any suggestions? It can just be grocery brands, if not, please send me somewhere in the Guy-Concordia area.
