Staples Canada appears to be clearing out a bunch of their Starbucks coffee. Pick your favourite roast and get each bag for only $6.91, which is $2 off the original price of $8.91.
You can choose in this sale from five coffees. The Starbucks Coffee, House Blend is self-explanatory and tends to be one of the most popular coffee blends that Starbucks sells. If you just want a good all-around cup of coffee, then this is the blend you wish to buy. Next, you can pick up the Starbucks Coffee, Breakfast Blend, which is a mild and light-bodied coffee. While it says breakfast blend, this might be a good coffee for later in the day as well. The Starbucks Coffee, French Roast is their darkest roast and fantastic for those who like bold flavour.
This Starbucks Coffee, Caffe Verona comes already ground for you. It features bold flavour with a seductive sweetness for a perfect cup of coffee. The Starbucks Coffee, Decaf House Blend also comes pre-ground. For those who love the test but don`t like the mid afternoon caffeine withdrawal jitters, this may be the blend for you. it is a medium-roast and sure to tickle your taste-buds.
So, let us do a little math. Starbucks Canada sells most of these coffees in the 1lb size for $15.95. Staples is selling their bags of 226 g for $6.91. One pound is equal to 453 (approx.) grams, which means that the bags that Staples Canada is selling are half-pound bags. To compare prices between Starbucks and Staples Canada you would either need to 2x the price of Staples or half the price of the Starbucks coffee. I decided to do the latter. Starbucks coffee works out to $7.96 a half pound if bought at Starbucks so you are saving just over a dollar per bag at Staples, or, approximately 13% off.
This, of course, does not take into account the natural fact that products sold in smaller packages will cost more per gram than those sold in larger quantities. However, buying coffee in smaller amounts can be quite nice if you want to try a new flavour without dedicating extra capital to something that might be a complete miss. This way, you can try out half pounds of several different coffee flavours without making the commitment of a full pound. You save money at the same time, which is always good.
