    Went to Stater Bros' today to get a few things, one of them being coffee. I was completely stunned at the price hike on decaf. Normally a 34.5 oz can of store brand decaf costs $9.99 ($8.99 if it's on sale). Well today I found out that the decaf now comes in 24.5 oz cans and STILL costs $9.99. That's almost exactly 1/3 less for the same price. The other ones still come in the 34.5 oz cans and the price did not increase on them. I guess me and The Big Guy are going to have to cut way down on our coffee.

    Coffee had already shot up in our area - DH hates that I buy the store brand, but I can't even look at the name brand stuff it's so $$$. Wait to you see the peanut butter hikes [​IMG]

    Well I can tell you that coffee growers in Honduras (small ones) are absolutely delighted. This is a great year for them. [​IMG]

    To be honest i really dont look at the price. i always buy flavored beans and my machine grinds them fresh. I only use 1/2 pounds a month.

    Quote:Peanut Butter is a must in our house. My DH went and stocked up a few weeks ago because he was listening to a talk show and the guy said that Jiff was having a 30% increase!! I do use the off brands @ times and imagine those will go up as well.

    I remember when the normal size for a can of coffee was either 16 oz (1 lb) or 48 oz (3 lb) before they started making them smaller and leaving the price the same.
