Ahh, there’s nothing like drinking a cup – or more! – of fresh-brewed organic coffee! The delight of that first sip of the delicous black nectar. The first taste of that pumpkin spice flavor (if you run that way). The delightful habit of heading to your local coffee shop or drive-in, speaking to the chummy barista, holding the coffee in your hand as you make your way back to the car, the coffee’s steam flowing behind you as you stride.
But wait: add that up: $3.07 times five times a week is $15.35. Multiply that by 50 weeks (taking into account vacation time from work) and you’re looking at $767.50 you spent on coffee. And that doesn’t include a second or third cup you might drink during the course of your day. Nor does it take into account any coffee you drink away from home on the weekend.
Almost $800 is pretty much a round-trip airline ticket to most cities in the country. It’s a new flat-screen TV. It’s a cabin for a week on a value cruise line.
Save Big: Brew at Home
Sure, you know it will cost you less to make your coffee at home instead of buying it at your local drive thru or coffee kiosk. But how much can you save, really?
Let’s break it down.
Naturally, the cost of brewing coffee at home depends on the cost of the ground coffee you purchase. But even the most pricey of coffee is a ton less expensive when brewed at home.
How much less? How about just about 33-38 cents a cup (depending on how strong you like it) for a six-ounce cup of an excellent specialty, fair trade and organic coffee: Ubean?
Yes, we know we are not inexpensive, but brewing a cup of Ubean at home still saves you a lot of money: at $19.24 for 12-ounce bag (which yields 48 and 51 cups), you should be able to enjoy between 48 to 51 six-ounce cups of coffee.
Even just doubling it to 12 ounces (the usual “small” at your local coffee purveyor) is just 66-76 cents a cup.
Now the math: at 66 cents times five times a week, that comes to $3.33 a week (compared to the $15.35 mentioned above). At 50 weeks a year, you’d spend $166.50 a year on that once-a-day coffee (not including weekends). Subtract $166.50 from the $767.50 you’re spending out on coffee each weekday and you have $601.00.
So you could still enjoy an excellent speciality coffee and still have almost $600 to spend on something else. Yes, Ubean Coffee is expensive. But it’s organic, fair trade coffee and it’s amazing!
We sell Ubean only via our independent distributor network. But you’d be saving several hundred dollars a year if you bought Ubean and brewed at home, even if you drank several cups a day. Give us a try; we’re certain you’ll be glad you did!
