Remember when you could get a cup of coffee and a donut for under 2 dollars?

I would have thought that coffee sales would be impacted by the rising cost of donuts .

Just how much of the cost of your Starbucks coffee does subby think goes to the coffee farmer??

Coffee and a donut at Starbucks are close to $5, although I don't know why anyone would buy a Starbucks donut unless they're made of money.  I did try one out of curiosity and it was ok, but not $3.00 ok.

Sometimes I can get a donut and coffee for close to ¥200 at Mr. Donuts, but they don't make donuts in Japan quite like they do back home.  More pizazz, less sweet, sugary mass.  It's hard to dunk a soft, spongy donut - you need a solid cake ring for that. 

I'll admit I don't mind paying extra for one of those new-fangled croissant donuts, though.  Them's good eatin'.

Haven't had a donut in a few years. Drinking coffee now. No, damn sure not starbucks overpriced burnt swill.

Do people not realize that no one's forcing them to waste hundreds (or thousands) of dollars per year on coffee/donuts, right?

"In 1989, 14.2 percent of all breakfasts included a doughnut and last year it was 9.1 percent. This is more about coffee than doughnuts," he said."

So their logic is that the reason people have stopped eating doughnuts for breakfast over the past 25 years is the price of coffee and not that people are making healthier eating choices.

Um, OK, if they say so.

So it's about two bucks for a cup of coffee and maybe 15 cents of that is the cost of the coffee and if the cost of coffee quadrupled there's not enough buffer in there to absorbe it so as not to hurt your customer volume? Hang on to your hat, the cost ain't quadrupling.

Well, our plants were mature when we moved here, so I'm not much of an expert in starting one out. I did find an article but I think success will probably depend largely on the type of soil.

"I have this every morning-if (the price) goes up I will cry," said Brittney Sanchez, a medical student from Queens, N.Y., whose typical order at Dunkin' Donuts is a hot chocolate, occasionally augmented by a doughnut.
"I think it's already ridiculous-$2.50 for a hot chocolate," she said.


Well dumb arse nobody is making you pay 2.50 for hot chocolate. Make your own and then buy the doughnut. You can buy a good quality hot chocolate mix for a lot less than 2.50 a glass

Ah. Appreciate the info...ive been interested in attempting to grow my own coffee for years now.

I understand i ts lots of work though.

Honestly, I think it would be less work than, say, a vegetable garden. But, I understand that not everyone has all the time in the world to dedicate to such things.

The good thing about growing your own (besides how cheap it is) is you can really tweak your roast to get the flavor you like best and, if you don't have a roaster, oven roasting makes the whole house smell amazing.

Why stop there?  If all you need is to wake up and you want to save money, why not just scald your groin with a hot iron every morning?

I can see no faults with your reasoning.

Never thought about using the oven. Bet it DOES smell good.

I just assumed id have to buy one of those old-school popcorn makers or something lol

That looks like one if the varieties created to more bush like than the old school arabica. Easy to grow.

It does depend on the soil but these days coffee farmers just fertilize the hell out of it.

I love donuts and I'd buy more if the chains ever decided to start making real donuts and not the premade heat and serve variety. There's only one bakery in town here that makes donuts and you have to be there as soon as the doors open if you want one. I'll probably always buy coffee no matter how high the price goes it's my one vice and even if the cost more than triples it's still cheaper than booze or meth.
 
2014-06-08 11:24:18 AM
Uh, how is that. If I go to dunkin and get a twenty oz it costs me about $2.50 I can buy a six pack of pints (96 oz) for about $5.50.

Awesome.

Question: can any varieties be grown in like big containers?

Also, i get that they needots of nitrogen at first, but what would YOY recommend as far as soil to produce the "best" coffee?

Sure maybe in the U.S that's true but Canadian booze prices are quite a bit higher.

was flying recently(like last night), and the coffee in the terminal was $4.70 for a large.  WTF?  That was in Ohio.  Dulles was $2.50 for the same size.

/asked at the duty-free store about cigars ... They had Cubans, but you can't be an American to buy them.

I love the article makes no mention of milk prices going up until after the mention of the hot chocolate prices going up. They're probably not making the hot chocolate with milk anyway.
i'm a bit more concerned about grocery store coffee prices going up because i make my own damn coffee.

Death (takes a sip from mug and spits it out): Geez, what did you make this hot cocoa with, crap?
Lois (sighs): Well if you want me to make it again...
Death: No, no. I'm sorry, It's just that I assumed that you were going to make it with milk, not crap.

That reminds me of a friend who nobody knew was Canadian until he pointed it out.

Then one time he got really really drunk, and OMG it was like he was channeling the MacKenzie Brothers.
