How much will you pay for a cup of coffee?Follow

There was another coffee price horror-story this morning on the news (rise in coffee prices was big 'marketplace' news just last fall). The heavy hitting countries (India, China) are getting addicted to the stuff causing an increase in demand. Simultaneoulsy crops are consistantly coming up short. Experts are suggesting that global climate change may be responsible and that we're reaching peak production levels.

Quote:
JEREMY HOBSON: The price of coffee beans is above $3 a pound for the first time since the 1970s. And experts say coffee inventories are unlikely to build up in the forseeable future. Worse yet, some are saying we've reached "peak coffee" levels.


Story

I stop nearly every morning on my way to work for coffee - I pay between 1.75-2.00 for a mediumish cup of quality coffee (locally roasted and brewed strong). I also just bought myself one of them Not-A-Paper-Cup double-walled porcelain travel mugs, thinking I should be trying to cut back on this habit of convenience.

The coffee girl this morning mentioned they'd gotten a notice of warning about prices from their bean supplier.

I'm thinking two bucks is kind of my limit for daily coffee, though I'd certainly pay more for an occasional, needy cup of coffee when out-on-the-town or traveling or whatever.

How much will you pay for a cup of coffee?

Well, I wish I had a convenient place for locally roasted coffee, so I'm jealous of you for that. I think $2 is about the max for me as well. If/when it goes up from there, I will start brewing my own or looking for coupons.

Other than that, it all depends on how desperate I am for coffee.

Don't drink the stuff. Love the smell, can't stand the taste.

Edit: It's silly in a way, as I don't like the taste of alcohol but have no problem drinking that. Switching to coffee would likely lead me to be more productive Smiley: tongue

I don't drink much coffee anymore. The occasional cup now and then. Quite content with a tea as well, not that I drink that all that often. I'll usually pay up to $3 with no complaint although, typically it's less than $2. Coffee goes up too much, I'll just drink more tea, until it drives up as well. And none of the chamomile or green tea. Tea's faggy enough without going that extra step.

Couple bucks, I guess. I could never justify paying for the fancy Starbucks style stuff.

McDonald's sells any size coffee for a buck so that works for me. I'd probably pay up to $2.00 for the same thing. Or $1.00 if they limited it to a medium.

Going to bed earlier has little to do with it unless you're going to be at 1am and getting up at 6am. Exercise though, that'll get you better rested and have you needing less sleep anyway.

Why dork around making my own when I can get a large cup for a trivial amount of money?

Of course, I drink the paint thinner that comes out of the machine at work so my standards are probably lower.

McDonalds actually sells a decent cup of coffee these days. They're using arabica beans. These particularly are the ones getting so expensive (versus the robusta beans that are not as impacted by the weather). We'll see how long their $1.00 for any size lasts. I recently had a McDonalds coffee from a travel plaza somewhere on I-95. They didnt offer me the one-dollar deal.

Considering at $1, they still make a profit and the reason for it at that price is to drive business away from coffee shops and to them during breakfast hours, I imagine it'll stay that way so long as they keep getting a decent increase in market share during that period.

McD's differs by franchise owner so I'm not surprised that one in a travel plaza either wouldn't offer the deal or wouldn't go out of their way to advertise it. Captive audience and all that.

It depends on coffee, of course. I get a huge coffee every school morning and pay around 1.50. I'm one of the fools that will pay for Starbucks, though that's usually on a rare occasion that I'm with friends and we decide to go "get coffee." "Getting coffee" is different from "injecting caffeine."

This.

I rarely buy cups of coffee. I don't even like Starbucks. I'd rather make my own.

That said, a brick of coffee is getting pretty pricey too. Meh.

I go to a small hole in the wall deli for a dollar cup during my morning work out. I don't think I'd spend more than two bucks. Then again, I've yet to find the appeal of Starbucks.

It could be me or the Starbucks in the Netherlands but when I tried it the coffee was mediocre at best and expensive to boot. I guess you'd go to Starbucks for the special flavoured coffee or something but they failed at making an ordinary cappuccino.

I don't drink the stuff, so I'm not too terribly worried about how much it costs. I prefer energy drinks to get my stimulant fix, and I only ever drink those if I've had less than four hours sleep a night for two days in a row.

It's getting close to $2.50 for a medium coffee from the Second Cup near work which has got me thinking about filling up the Thermos from home.

Same here. I'll drink it with lots of creamer and sugar if I'm desperate to stay awake at work. I actually
have some and sugar stashed away just in case. Normally I drink Tea or caffeinated soda.

I never buy coffee by the cup anywhere, unless I'm with friends and we stop at StarBucks or maybe in a diner getting breakfast or something. I drink the free coffee at work. The hall coffee is ok, and recently they installed these new Yum Yum Donuts coffee machines in the break rooms that is quite good (and still free!). At home, I brew my own. Works for me, and in the grand scheme of things, the price of a cup of coffee just isn't that high on my list of things to worry about.

You probably brew cat shit in that thing, don't you.

I usually brew my own and use a travel mug that currently has a picture of my son on it. My wife gets me photo mugs every Father's Day. If not, I'll go to any old place and get a cup of filtered mud water. I've broken down and actually gotten Starbucks lately, but the issue I have with them is more the disgustingly strong taste than the obnoxiously high price.

If all the buzz is true, then I forsee Peak Coffee being a greater catastrophe for humankind in general than Peak Oil.

I'm pretty hooked, but I rarely pay for it. Work supplies pretty good stuff for free, so as long as they're buying, I'm drinking. However if it ever does get that expensive, I imagine they might quit, in which case I'd probably pay as much as $5 for a good sized cup. If it creeps up beyond that I would probably just give it up and start drinking tea.

A few places I've worked at had free coffee, the idea being that it was cheaper for the company to privide it for free than to have people dicking around making their own or going out to get one, a time saver.

At my last job, we were not allowed to make coffee because the manager thought we wasted too much time dicking around the coffee maker. So we went and hung out at the Stewart's getting coffee instead.

If my uni had free coffee I would probably be dead, I drink 3-5 large coffees when I am there which cost me about £5 a day.

If it was free I would be drinking about 100 :|

I'm a coffee addict, so I will definitely pay that. Hell, I'm paying $1.89 for a large at Au Bon Pain every morning as it is. If there was a Starbucks closer, which I prefer, I'd be paying over $2. If there was a good local beanery, I'd potentially pay even more than that (but there isn't even a crappy one. :/)

Of course, I prefer my coffee brewed at home (I like it strong, and use a French Press). The only reason I don't right now is that it is too much of a hassle in a dorm. But I'll have an apartment next semester, so...

Either way, I'm a little snobbish when it comes to my coffee. I bought a $14 bag of coffee beens over the summer (and never once regretted it). My wallet couldn't support that regularly, but holy sh*t it was good.

However, if I was drinking it purely as a stimulant, like my parents do, I'd feel very differently.
