Just make your own fucking coffee.

This. Why the fuck do people spend so much money on a cup of coffee with sugar dumped in? You can buy a pound of coffee for the price of one starcucks drink.

Because it's the best cup of burned battery acid that money can buy.

It's literally just caffeinated water with coffee flavoring. They used to do reconstituted coffee, but that was too expensive for the bottom line.

It baffles me. I drink 4-5 cups a day. It costs me ~$0.50/day

What's that cost at starfags?

4-5 cups of Black coffee would probably be like $10-13. But everyone gets the sugary ones that are like $5 or $6 PER DRINK. Not to mention that the sugar is poisoning them.

Also, The amount of money people waste on eating out for lunch every day, boggles my mind. No wonder 80% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck.

Just calculated my costs for brewing a 12 oz cup of coffee, and it's about 70 - 80 cents for the beans. How are you getting your cost so low?

Numbers: 1.6 - 2 grams of coffee per ounce of water, with beans being roughly $15 per pound.

Good espresso makers aren't even that expensive, anymore. De'Longhi/Gaggia/Breville have been making some serious inroads in to the affordable markets. One bag of beans lasts me months of serious (borderline addict-like) amounts of cups. I could do the math, by weighing a double-shot's worth of grinds, but don't care that much. But it probably works out to something like $0.05 per cup. Of actual high-quality beans; not whatever discount, last-pick garbage tar that Starcucks hawks.

Why do you say 5 cents and others says 50 cents?

Why espresso over coffee?

What if I told you that Starbucks doesn't even sell coffee? What if I told you that it is literally caffeinated water with coffee flavoring added? Would you be pissed that you dumped a sawbuck on coffee-flavored water & non-dairy creamer with artificial flavors?
