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

What's that cost at starfags?

People are fucking stupid. I was getting my car certified the other week. The number of grown men I saw dropping their vehicles off for an oil change, was staggering.

How the fuck do you own a 4X4 truck, and not know how to change your oil?

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.

I drink coffee, every day. I plan to do so for at least the next 50 years.

I buy coffee in 20kg bags, and portion them off. It's much cheaper.

You can do this with a lot of things. You cook a lot of steak at home? Go to a restaurant supply company's store front and buy whole cuts. Butcher it yourself and save upwards of 50%.

edit - I'm buying shade grown beans for ~$5/kg

Fine, maybe I spend ~$1/day on coffee

I'm also not using that much coffee/water. I percolate in a stainless, camping style pot. I use ~1g/oz

Folgers or Maxwell House is $9.99 for three pounds at Costco.
