Cups - How Much Would You Pay a Month for Unlimited Coffee?
CUPS is an app for IOS and Android that allows you to pay for coffee at independent coffee shops. CUPS allows you to subscribe and get discounted or even unlimited coffee from independent coffee shops for a discounted price. Right now in the US it’s only available in New York where you can pay a per month or discount rate at many coffee shops.
Is it a deal? A participating shop needs to be convenient to your home, work, or some point in between, and one drawback is a participating shop can withdraw from CUPS at any time. Still paying and saving 20-30% off the price of your coffee or even getting unlimited coffee for $45 to $85 bucks a month might work out in the long run.
We like the idea and would love to know if you’re using CUPS in NYC. We’ll be visiting NYC next week and will try and check it out.

I'll always have 2 cups n the morning at home whether it's workday or on weekends. So I would only make use of this 'offer' Mondays-Fridays, 4 weeks a month at most. So....20 days a month.
Not interested in going into a shop, so I'd only use this as a drive-thru option. And only on the way to work. AFter work it's beer time :)
I only have a 5.4 km drive into work, and I work in a lab where food/drink are not allowed, so at most this means another 20 oz cup.
20 cups a month @ 20 oz per cup Doesn't sound unlimited for my purposes, and if I want coffee in the evening I've got the capability at home for good coffee without having to go out.
Bottom line? This is of no use for me; but if I was not restricted for food/beverage concumption at work I could see 3-4 cups per day (15-20 cups per week).
I dunno..... 10$ a week if it's delivered? This just sounds too odd and of little/no use to me.
