Each week, I'll give out a tip. Take it or leave it.
Was reading a fellow blogger recently and she got me thinking about coffee. I love coffee, but I'm no expert and definitely not a snob. I was in a rush the other day and had to make a quick stop at a coffee chain. Let's call it Marmuck's. I got the cheapest cup of coffee they had. I think the total came to $1.62. It got me thinking. About twice a year I order coffee from Kona, Hawaii. Kona coffee is some of the best you can drink. I was there a few years back and spent half a day going to all of the plantations. Anyway, Kona coffee is not cheap. A pound usually runs about $25. When you factor in shipping, you're looking at $35. A typical one-pound bag of coffee yields about 25 cups. See where I'm going with this one?
Back to Marmucks. If I plunk down $1.62 for 25 straight days, that comes to $40.50. Do I spend $40.50 for bad coffee or $35 for great coffee? Every once and awhile I order some Kona. All the plantations produce great coffee. My favorite so far is Greenwell Farms.
