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.

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.
