Starbucks Too Expensive? Try Single Serve Coffee

20060122-Pc-I1-0600We would have to agree with many of the points in this article in the Columbus Dispatch. At $1.50-$2.00 a cup, the cost of coffee at Starbucks and other retailers ads up quickly. If you have 1 cup a day for the average work week - you're looking at over $40 bucks a month for a cup a day.

You can cut that down to less than $10 bucks a month if you drink single serve coffee instead, or if you're like the staff here at Single Serve Coffee.com, you'll still hit that $40 mark but drink 4 times the amount of coffee for the $40 bucks you'd spend at Starbucks. We do however frequent our local Starbucks from time to time and enjoy a cup of Pete's, Seattle's Best, and others when we're out shopping from time to time.

"The machines also are designed to appeal to the growing number of people buying coffee from coffee shops. Single-cup machines offer ‘‘a coffeehouse-quality cup of coffee at home with little fuss and less cost," said Dave Manly, marketing vice president for Keurig, which makes three single-cup brewers for home use. ‘

‘We found that a third of our customers are people who would go to Starbucks and other gourmetcoffee shops." A cup of Keurig-brewed coffee costs 56 cents or less — more than traditional home-brews but substantially less than $1.50-to-$4 servings at coffee shops."

Gosh, I just have to comment on this article since it appears to have more than a few 'negativities' contained in it.

1) Am I being conditioned ot expect immediate results? NO; Hell, I went withouta good coffee maker my whole life. I accepted what is basically second rate garbage because I didn't know that anything better existed. Sure I wold love to be able to afford the Juress Capresso Impressa Z2, but I can't. I found the world of single serve coffee. And I can afford that. Anything wrong with that Mr. Travis?

2) I desire to have a personalized cup of coffee. That's apparently part of being self absorbed. And I belong to the 'entitlement' mentality; again, according to Mr. Craig. Well guess bloody what? There are some thigns in this world that I do not like. I tend to avoid them. And there are some things in this world that I like. I tend to seek them out. I want a customized cup of coffee because I do. Period. End of rationalization. And I can drink one because I can afford one.

Bottom line is that I do not have to a) go out to get a good cup of coffee, b) I pay less than if I went to a coffee house, c) I end up with a better cup than what I was capable of making several months ago, and d) I've got far more variety available to me.

Mr. Craig; please stick to your day old coffee. I've stopped drinking that.
