Right wingers can't figure out why you pay 5.00 for coffee.
It is $2.83 for a cup of coffee here in Texas if you order their House Blend but I just buy Bustelo in individual packets for $0.99 per box and save money.

It all taste the same to me…

This post seems to be like "nah, nah, my dad's penis is bigger than your dad's penis"

"Er... why have you seen my dad's penis, exactly?"

Yes, at the local airport while doing the toe tapping square dance in the restroom…

Anyhoo, coffee prices will hit everyone and not just Starbucks customers, so the OP prancing about in happiness should know if they slurp coffee they also will be paying higher prices at the market…

Starbucks is "instant gratification."

Nobody truly conservative goes there.

Of course, liberal government do-nothings parrot the global warming bullshit like religion. Now they can whine about coffee prices... Due to a RECORD FREEZE in Brazil.


Global warming and record freezes.... sounds like left wing "science" at work...

Good god, Trump humpers are stupid, no wonder their dear leader loves them so much.
Not only do they think they are conservative but they don't even know there are two hemispheres.

Just be sure to ponder how global WARMING caused you to pay more for your coffee....

And then ask yourself, am I smart for believing global WARMING when I am paying more for coffee because of a

RECORD FREEZE EVENT IN BRAZIL

Conservatives with jobs don't have an hour to waste waiting in line at those slow ass, overpriced Starbucks joints.
All I ever see conservatives do is fast food joints for work. I can see why they don't have the time or money for coffee. Personally I think coffee sucks.

It takes ONE tablespoon of ground coffee to make 6 - 8 ounces of brewed coffee.
Two if you like it stronger.

There are around 90 tablespoons of coffee in a one pound bag of grounds.

The average cost of one pound of ground coffee is, lets say, $15.00.

That makes one cup of coffee about .16 cents. One cup of strong coffee .32 cents.

Poured into a cup which costs around .20 cents. Now equals .52 cents.

Served by someone who makes $15.00 an hour, and it only takes them 3 minutes to prepare for you........come out to .75 cents. Now equals $1.27.

If you take cream and/or sugar/sweetener, add .03 cents.

Now you have a total of $1.30 for a cup of coffee.

BUT...........

If you are in the coffee business, you get better deals and pay almost HALF the price for a pound of coffee as you would buying it retail. This goes for cups and add-ons as well.......now making that cup of coffee about .65 cents a cup (with cream and sugar).

Even just charging $1.00 for a cup of coffee, the company would be making profit hand over fist. Charging $5.00 for a cup of coffee.......well now, isn't that abuse of position and power? Isn't that is what Communism is all about? Any honest business would never charge more than double the production price of any item, because thats the standard business ethic of how to charge for a product or service.

But you've got Apple charging THOUSANDS of dollars for phones that only cost $20.00 to produce. You've got Starbucks charging $5 plus dollars for .05 - .25 cents worth of coffee. You've got drug companies charging $500.00 and up, for drugs that only cost pennies to produce. You've got the auto industry charging THOUSANDS of dollars for a vehicle that only costs around $5,000 or less to produce. You've got sport shoes like Nikes, that cost less than $2 per shoe to produce, yet they charge $100 - $5,000 for them! If not more.

America is full of suckers. Some of us don't fall for this stuff as much as others though. It's also difficult to find an honest company anymore. Those of us who actually use our brains, try to keep with the lesser of the evils when buying products. It takes a bit of work, but you CAN buy products you use regularly that aren't made in China, and not produced by heinously greed-mongering companies. But like I said, it takes a bit of work. Work is something that most people in this country are severely allergic to.:21:

If people in the US are allergic to work then I guess those that have jobs are not Americans in America..Derpa deluxe.

I can understand why people live in the stuff, but I have to second your saying that the stuff sucks. I once drank a big cup of caramel flavored ice coffee and I eventually had to go to bed because it gave me one of the worst headaches that I have ever experienced. I forgot about how much caffeine was in it and what I obviously did was drink the stuff too fast. I haven't done such a thing since then and I never will.

God bless you always!!!

Holly

P.S. I will never get why people are willing to pay anything for the stuff when at the end of the day, coffee is coffee and yet they will still go to the most expensive places for it.
