Best Costco Coffee Prices vs. Walmart

In a head to head comparison with Walmart, Costco almost always wins. The only exception found was the retailer’s respective store brand medium roast grounds. Costco’s medium roast was almost double the per ounce cost of the store brand offered by Walmart.
Costco’s packages are significantly larger, and coffee does deteriorate over time. Individuals have to determine for themselves if their rate of consumption is too slow for club sized purchases.
Costco has a wide variety of coffee available, and in almost all cases the best per ounce or per Kcup price. If Costco carries your favorite brand, or if you’re willing to try one they stock, you can take advantage of their low prices.
