"Old pirates, yes, they rob I" - Holy crap that coffee's expensive...

Yes, but it's Jamaican Blue Mountain, which is one of the smoothest coffees out there. I think the going rate is $60 a pound, so this is in line with that. It's very mild though and I find a cup of just Blue Mountain to be tasty, but kind of boring. I've got some that my friends bought for me when they were on a Caribbean cruise and I mainly use it as a blend with African coffees that I've had for over a month to cut their bitterness. A 50/50 blend usually cuts the bitterness but keeps most of the flavor from the other coffee.

Not sure how finely their pre-ground coffee comes, but you may be better off buying whole bean coffee if you plan on using it with the free French Press (Which you can get at TJ Maxx or Marshall's normally for $20). French Presses use a screen to filter out the coffee and if the coffee's too finely ground, it can clog the screen and cause issues as you press down. If you plan on using the press, go with the whole bean and go with a very coarse grind.

@mossmanfromheman: Yeah... but there are some reasonably priced bags. And @they2pproblem is right about the average price for certain blends are pricey.

Coupon code C92856 snags 20% off. It worked on 4/19 when I tried it. EDIT: coupon still works, but you can only use it once until 05/01/12. Also of note - I put everything into my cart to reach the $40 minimum and then added the coupon. Total came to less than $40, but the free press was still shipped.

With the coupon mentioned, that's ~$42/lb for the Jamaican Blue Mountain, which is far to the low end of what I've seen. I've seen it at a pretty solid $50/lb standard. Plus you're getting a $30 press, so this is a fantastic deal if you're up on your coffee game.
