  • I have the keurig coffee maker which i assume you have as well since you said you use k cups. I drink one, sometimes two cups a day and it gets to be pretty pricey since the coffee costs about .50 a cup. Way cheaper than coffee shops though. But have you tried the thing that you put in the keurig that uses just regualr coffee. You just put anything in it. Lately i have been putting folgers in it and it saves a ton. You can get them anywhere that they sell keurigs.

  • I bought my first non-home coffee today - 20 oz for $1.40. At home, I use a regular coffee maker, but don't make a pot every day. I buy the big can of Folger's 1/2 caff, usually costs around $7 or so, and 1 can will last me up to a year. But I buy creamer too, but that's still under $2 for a week's worth.

  • I drink most of my coffee at home, although once in a while I will treat myself to a Starbucks. At my local Starbucks I get a grande white chocolate mocha with 4 shots and it cost me $5.96. If I am down in Illinois the same coffee is $6.12-- due to higher state sales tax. If I go to the Starbucks located in Target, they have the cheapest price for that same coffee.

  • Most of my coffee is at home, I love Dunkin Donuts coffee and buy 4lbs for 19.99, that lasts us about a month. Maybe 2 or 3 times a month I get coffee out, usually dunkin donuts, about $2.00 a cup.
