Stopped by La Colombe coffee for my monthly purchase of whole beans. They've recently raised the price from $9.55 per lb to $11.25 (Corsica Roast)! A fairly steep jump.
However, I would point out that:
- In my opinion it is still the best coffee in town if not anywhere.
- I can't remember any other price increase in the past 5+ years
- It's still very competetive compared to mediocre "chain" gourmet coffees, especially the ones that switch to 12 oz bags to make the price seem cheaper.
I will still be getting my coffee fix from La Colombe!
