    I guess Starbucks thinks we have money to burn.

    This White T-Shirt with what looks like a coffee stain on it is perfect for the coffee addict that keeps spilling his or her coffee on the way to work.

    What was once evidence of being a sloppy mess is now high fashion.

    I think the problem with it is keeping people from trying to blotch the stain before it sets.

    Hmmmmmm.....that might be worth $85 to somebody.

    I wonder if it comes in boxers?

    Ridiculous.

    Then again, why I would pay $4 for a cup of coffee when I can make a far better cup of coffee at home for $0.20, is beyond me.

    Me and thee! I like my Sumatra. Wouldn't trade it for a cup of anybody's latte! Or an ugly shirt!

    :)

    And, I can use my favorite mugs to drink it.

    Home brewed is the way to go.

    Sure is. I hate a hot paper cup or one with that little sleeve on it. And even worse, I hate a styrofoam cup! Ewwwwwww..

    Yes, I grind my own as well. I order it in bulk straigth from the company and keep it in the freezer where it keeps indefinitely.

    Unfortunately everything I've read concerning freezing coffee says it's a big no no besides I prefer espresso roast which means you have to thaw it before you can grind it. :lol:

    I've been freezing coffee beans for almost 50 years. Learned it from a home economist. You have to keep them air tight and do not refreeze. Mine go straight from freezer to grinder. The last cup tastes just like the first.
