Espresso pods

sundancer 10225 Dec 12, 2008 11:53 AM

So i've just bought my husband an espresso maker, and I wanted to get him some coffee pods to go with it, but I haven't seen any around. Could someone suggest a good location where I might find them and perhaps also a good selection. thanks

    starbucks sells them, but they are more expensive and stale than fresh ground.

    if he has a grinder, you can get some amazing beans at murky coffee in arlington (or you can get him a nice grinder there too). costco has freshly roasted beans, at least in pentagon city. they are an awesome value at 8 bucks for 2.5 pounds.

      Murky Coffee is no more. I second that the Costco beans are a great deal, especially if you lean towards "Charbucks" style roasts; I've only seen them at the PC store.
