So, if you’re like me – you love coffee… a lot! If you are really like me, you want to have great tasting coffee – but don’t want to spend a good part of your budget purchasing premium coffee.
So where does this leave you?
Many times it leaves you buying premium coffee, because you just can’t stand the other – and live with footing the bill for it.. But there are a few possibilities in this area that I think are worth a try and may save you a few bucks. Below are 3 inexpensive coffee brands that I think still taste pretty good and are on the lower side in price.
1. Capanna Coffee (sold through Capanna Coffee stores & through the mail) – Purchased in 5lb bags
Probably the best coffee I’ve tasted, and is very inexpensive to boot!
Capanna Coffee is small coffee chain located throughout Iowa with headquarters in North Liberty, Iowa. I was introduced to them by a friend in Wisconsin, and have loved it ever since. Capanna coffee is smooth, rich, and full with an amazing aftertaste – I highly recommend them and also love that they are so inexpensive.
Capanna only sells their coffee in 5lb bags, so you have to buy in bulk – unless you live in Iowa and can stop in for a cup.. To order and have the coffee delivered, contact them @ firstname.lastname@example.org – you won’t regret it.
2. Aldi’s Beaumont Donut Store Blend (purchased at Aldi’s Grocery Stores) – $4.99 for 12 oz bag
I’m not a big Aldi’s shopper, but I’ve been in the store from time to time and have found amazing deals on food. The other week my mother-in-law bought some Aldi’s Beaumont donut store blend and I decided to have a cup out of their Keurig. (they have a refillable K-cup).
Let me tell you – I was shocked. For the cheapest coffee I’ve ever come across, it hands down is great for the taste buds. Far superior to some of the other discount brands like Folgers and Maxwell House. It is bold and smooth, and has only a slight bitter taste – not too much to overpower you, but enough to notice. Either way, it is great and you will enjoy drinking it in the future.
3. Eight O’Clock Coffee (sold everywhere) – $6.99 for 12 oz bag
This coffee is probably my least favorite of the three, but is inexpensive and tastes just fine. I certainly wouldn’t’ say it is terrible or would spit it out, but using my Keurig I can still brew a great cup of coffee from the 12 oz bag.
If buying Eight O’Clock Coffee I recommend the colombian brand. It provides a nice strong brew, stolid taste, and some boldness. I just brewed a cup right now, and the smell and after taste is pleasant. It has only a slight bitterness, but is very smooth.
If you want to save an additional couple bucks, visit their online web page. They offer a $2 coupon that can be printed out and taken to the store…
What’s with the Keurig thing?
If you noticed I mentioned Keurig brewing a number of times throughout this post. I personally save money and make a great cup of coffee by using a refillable k-cup with my Keurig and brewing the coffee above one cup at a time. I’ve found that this not only saves me a bunch of cash – it gives me a great cup of coffee every time and improves on a number of the ‘not so great’ coffee blends.

So what did I miss? Any coffee brands that you love and enjoy, but also save you some money?
