Here is what to watch for beginning now. Manufacturers have done this before. On both coffee and on sugar. Probably a whole lot of not so obvious things (like the size of a burger at the local drive in?)
5 Years ago coffee sugar and flour could be purchased in 5lb sacks or cans.
6 months ago when I purchased the coffee this was the size.
Now at the local wally world under a sign that says "This is the same great coffee...only a different label" this is the size.
No the price did not go down.
