I enjoy gourmet, fresh roasted coffee but the price isn't so much fun. I find mixing the ground gourmet about half and half with less expensive coffee still gives me a fresh roasted flavor but costs much less.

Yup, but you have to experiment with the mix. Years ago (before I lost my sense of smell) I used to keep pounds of gourmet coffee beans in my freezer. I love Kona, but it doesn't have quite enough bite for me. I was paying (back then; it's more now) fifteen bucks a pound for it, and I'd mix it three to one with Kroger Colombian (about three bucks a pound) and got just the flavor I was looking for. Never be afraid to play.
Do you have a variation to share for this page?
I am always looking for ways to economize. As coffee prices rose, I started using less, but it didn't taste as good. Now I have started to experiment with espresso. I added it a little at a time, until I got a great smelling, tasting, flavorful cup that is satisfying. All the people I give it to think so also.
