    Been in Poundland for ages - and you can save a whole penny by buying at 99p Stores.

    Oh, and the coffee ain't bad!

    HOT
    Also in home bargains
    Actually 125g is half the size of a normal pack so while it is a little cheaper, it's not a great bargain. Currently it is £1.10 per 100g in Tesco (not on offer) and this works out 80p per 100g. Good if you are passing a pound shop and like this coffee but not worth making a specific journey for.

    Overall you are generally better off finding a blend you really like and paying a little extra for it.
    this price at home bargins all the time

    Even on your calculations (you have to buy 500g), this is 25% saving, and is as good - or better - than many sold at £4 for 227g. Why pay more?

    The same coffee is £5.49 for 500g at Tesco and Waitrose, so 500g from Poundland is £4, which is good if you like this coffee. But a lot of people prefer other coffee, which is why they pay close to £4 for half a pound. It depends on taste preferences, what coffee machine or
    device you have and how much cash you what to spend!

    As I said, if you like this blend, it's a good deal, but for most people it's a false economy trying to save 25% per cup (couple of pennies) by drinking something that doesn't suit your taste buds.

    I'm not saying that it isn't a good deal or that everyone should be a coffee snob. I'm just saying that, in this case, for the sake of a few pennies it's not worth a special trip to poundworld/land/home bargains/etc (who all sell these pack at the same price) or changing your favourite blend to something you don't enjoy as much.

    Personally, if these were 250g bags I'd be all over them myself. But I do think the 125g bags that are designed to look the same size as the 250g bags are misleading at best and a con at worst so I ignore them on principle.
    these are permanently £1 at home bargains, I was buying them weekly for over a year until I got my new coffee machine.
    these are very small bags not a great deal imho
    same price in Home Bargains
    who actually uses all their fresh ground coffee before it goes stale?
    Smaller bags are welcome imho

    Pop it in the freezer, would prefer beans but I can be arsed some days, this is a good coffee though. I have a good supply from poundland.

    I do, easily, otherwise I'd never get my kids to school/nursery on time in the morning

    Heat from me, good price, like the coffee and can bulk buy if 125g not enough!
    Always 99p at Home Bargains too!
