We consider ourselves coffee snobs too and I usually buy for my hubby's Christmas stocking a pound of JBM and it costs me about $80.
In September 2011 we brought home some of the coffee they put in your room. My husband swears the package said Blue Mountain not Mountain High. (We'll have to check that out). We then bought 6 pounds of beans at the Couples gift shop. Price was $34 but we were told it was on sale for $29 Mon-Wed-Fri-Sat before 1pm. Then at the airport we bought one pound of Jablum for $29. Same price as at Couples....well I guess not really because it was tax free.
We consumed the room coffee first and it was yummy. Then we opened the Jablum and didn't really like it. So hubby bought a 2lb bag of Kona blend at Costco and we've been drinking that for two months. (We only drink the good stuff on Fri & Sat nights). It was weak IMHO. Then on Friday night we opened one of the Couples 1lb bags and it was great! So rich and smooth compared to both the Kona & the Jablum.
We are back in September of this year and I'm not sure how much coffee we will be bringing back this time. But we do have the $300 resort credit for early booking so we'll probably buy again at the gift shop.
Bringing home the coffee is just the icing on the cake from a fabulous trip at CN.
