good for them. would love to try some.

my favorite region is still the Andes then Brazil. a relative brought me back some Blue Mountain from a trip to ganja island and while it was not bad it wasn't all that great either. the price is higher than the weed they sell....

I loves me some good coffee....will have to search this kind and read reviews about it. While the pricing is a bit steep I still love a good cup of coffee and when you consider how much a pound of coffee is in relation to how many cups it makes...it's still a bargain as we pay around $5 a cup to fork over to Coffee Houses.

There was a web site that sold rare coffees online that listed several that were over $300 per pound and I believe that Kopi costs around $500!

That is some expensive coffee.

I've tried some high-end beans before, but they weren't great enough to warrant the extra cost. Some of the best coffee I've ever had was home roasted by a fellow Geek.

Most supermarket & hotel coffee is exclusively robusta, and instant and cheap ground coffees are certainly robusta. You can still find Arabica in the grocery store, but just because it's labeled Arabica does not mean it's of high quality. Amazon has 5 lbs. of Tarrazu for $38.00, this is the only brand that I would select on Amazon:

5 Lb. Bag, Costa Rica Tarrazu, Whole Bean, Fresh Roasted Coffee LLC

by Fresh Roasted Coffee LLC.

It can be. However, there are a ton of good coffees for less than $10/lb, which will last quite a while unless you drink coffee all day, every day.

I get my Maine Root Ginger Brew there, along with Topo Chico mineral water...and of course, some cigars. Will have to look for this, as long as I don't have to donate an organ to pay for it!

Looks like $10.92 a pound for medium roast whole beans....not too bad. When you are there, ask them when they will be getting some Costa Rican cigars

That is a reasonable price, will look for some this weekend. How about you send some Costa Rican cigars and I can leave them some samples? I do have contact with the regional manager for Spec's cigar dept, not that it will help much, but...just sayin'!

nirab...some cigars are headin your way. I stopped at the local supermarket today and bought a bag of Dota Tarrazu med. roast whole beans...$8.50/lb.
If anyone is interested, I could mail a bag to the states and maybe include a couple of cigars! Send me a PM. The bag is 400 grams and costs $6.75.

I just bought some Costa Rican SHB Tarrazu micro lot at Marlton Coffee online,
I buy green beans and roast my own. I think it was 7.50 and less for 5 or more.

And It is amazing
