I am biased, but my preferred coffee is from Tim Horton. Anywhere you go in Canada, well almost everywhere, you will find a Timmy and always busy. That being said, I wonder if there are any in the north? Like, Yellowknife or Whitehorse?? 8O

My husband doesn't like Timmies (don't worry, the authorities already know and we're on our way out ).

Jchillin~since the good coffee is only $2-3 dollars more, indulge. (I think you are a smoker, if not, ignore--stop smoking and the 2-3 dollars difference is a bargain!)

On your way out or running away?

In more ways than you can imagine! Would ya believe cigarettes cost about $70.00 a pound!? The benefits list is endless.

Well, Gevalia's true purpose has been revealed!

I did re-order 1lb of their "Special Roast" in February. It was $7.99 (plus tax).

Yesterday, I recieved a new shipment - One that I didn't order. Two pounds of "Special Roast"!

The cost? $29.00!!!!

The reciept states that "We hope you enjoy your selection...we will ship your order to you once a month. You can cancel at anytime."

Cancel something that I did not order??? Wow. I am very glad that I didn't use a credit card to pay for the original order.

Moral: "Do not trust Gevalia"

Cool Jc! Thanks for the input. Will they let you send the coffee back?

Absolutely!

The "catch" was shipping you coffee, charging your credit card for the purchase in the hope that you wouldn't catch it or remember in time.

$29.00 ($18.00 per lb)...geez. They must be nuts.
