Looking for instant espresso powder in SF

I don't know how I've survived without it for this long. But I'm looking for instant espresso powder to use in baking. (The hack of substituting prepared coffee works most -- but not all -- of the time.)

I've looked at Whole Foods, Safeway, Bi-Rite, and the Italian deli in the Ferry building. I'm told the brand to buy is Medaglia d'Oro. Anyone know where to find this in San Francisco? (Tried Lucca Delicatessen the other day, but they were closed.)

Thanks.

    They have it at Tower Market (Molly Stone's) on Portola.

        They have it at Country Cheese in Berkeley. Is the CC at Divisidero and someplace still there in the city?

          I've picked up some in the past at Trader Joe's. I'm not sure if it's something that is always available there.

                I've found it at Trader Joe's once too, and Cal Mart in Laurel Heights carries it.

                  I have also had trouble finding it. I bought some recently at Cooks Boulevard, 1309 Castro Street, cross street 24th Street.

                    i've bought it at whole foods before, strange that they wouldn't still carry it.
                    how about City Discount on Polk?

                      I've always purchased it at Cost Plus.
