The most affordable coffee beans in town
Most coffee beans costs $12-$20 a pack, so these $4.50 bags from Ikea are a real steal. They might not pack the complex body or depth of a more expensive roast, but as a daily brew, they do just fine. There is even a coffee grinder at the store for you to grind the beans.

14 types of flavoured coffee
Worth checking out is It’s Bean Awhile, a new local online shop that sells coffee beans and ground coffee with flavours like salted caramel and warm bourbon. It even delivers the coffee right to your doorstep! You don’t need fancy equipment to brew them – just use single-serve coffee filters (available on the website), a French press, or a drip coffee maker.
