Me: I hope this list doesn't include coffee or chocolate.

The article: Today, chocolate and coffee are, once again, at risk of becoming expensive and inaccessible.

Saved me a click. I was samesies.

Try Mighty Leaf, about $.50/bag (when bought in bulk) and if you're using a 12oz cup you can usually get 2 cups out of them without getting too bitter. I'm partial to Organic Spring Jasmine but pretty much everything I've tried from them has been good. It's owned by Peet's Coffee now but I haven't noticed any changes since they were independent.

We literally eat like kings now, and we're not going back.

A meat tax would reflect some of these harmful environmental impacts, but remains politically unpopular. "That could change," says Alexander, as more people view meat as "something we cannot afford to eat, in terms of sustainability."

Meat taxes won't do anything but further split the US / World into the haves and have nots. If we (all of us) are going to try and stem agricultural greenhouse gas emissions than all of us have to be equal. We all get a 300g daily card of meat, doesn't matter if you're Bill Gates or a Walmart greeter. Now if Bill Gates wants to buy some vegetarian's daily meat card that's fine. But a general meat tax will just mean the US produces the same amount of beef/chicken/pork and only the rich get to eat it.

was expecting to see both of those on the list, was surprised not to see avocados.

genmaicha and those tiny pu-erh cakes are personal favorites, and neither too dear. also Twinings' Lady Grey, mmm. my brother is a fan(atic) of Dryad-brand teas, which start scaling into the pricey but I must admit they are pretty tasty. me, a cheapskate, generally goes for Davidson-brand bulk stuff, and they have a metric fark-tonne of varieties (mixing hibiscus petals and rosehips another personal favorite)

Last month, the local Safeway had bone-in rib steaks on sale for $6.67 lb., value-pack.  Now they're selling for $20.99 lb. Though this might be a supply chain issue.

Tazo green ginger, loaded with lemon. Add honey when sick. Like now. Goddam fever isn't high enough to hallucinate either.

Hey guys! TFA helpfully informed me that saffron and real vanilla could go back (?!) to being expensive...

NINEv2: Tazo green ginger, loaded with lemon. Add honey when sick. Like now. Goddam fever isn't high enough to hallucinate either.


sorry to hear that, brother. 'specially about the non-hallucinations, those are the fun part.

one of my favorite fake/lazy -cha: green tea, ginger powder, white pepper powder, milk, honey.

olrasputin: Hey guys! TFA helpfully informed me that saffron and real vanilla could go back (?!) to being expensive...


oh, lawd. I still got a decent amount of saffron kicking in the spice-cupboard, so what I really should do is make some freezer-kulfi (think there's still some canned coconut milk/cream lurking en cucina, even)

question: but do I have pistachios? because kesar elaichi pista may be my favorite ice cream of the evars.

/definitely got the cardamons
//vanilla is for Karens
///naaah, it still has its uses

an errant thought in my head: "Man, if coffee gets priced out of the average joe, maybe we'll have a reason to use coffee-alternatives like MUD WTR, Four Sigmatic, and other mushroom-based drinks."

[SMACK]
BAD HEAD, BAD!

/You go to your room and think about what you just thought!
//Four Sigmatic tastes like liquid ass mixed with sanka.

since I got a quality response:

I also heard (but have never done this!) toasted dandelion roots used as a coffee sub.

Huh. Not sure if I have the patience to make sure my dandelions are two years old before harvesting, but it may be worth a try someday.
Or sooner than someday if the planet keeps burning at this rate.

love chicory ever since being gifted a can of Cafe du Monde, decades ago. now I buy bulk chicory by the pound and mix it about 1:5 or 1:6 in our big jars of supermarket coffee. it's not exactly inexpensive, but if coffee prices rise enough then maybe the market for chicory will grow, etc.

bought this 10-11 years ago - sounds good on paper, but it just wasn't tasty enough I ever ordered it again -
"Ingredients: Water extract of barley, rye, chicory roots, dandelion roots, and beet roots"
definitely not inexpensive, lol.

bought this at the same time. tasted a little better, but not by much -
"Ingredients: Organic Carob, Organic Barley, Organic Chicory, Organic Ramon Nuts, * Organic Coffe Flavor." (not sure what the asterisk implies)
also quite pricey, lol.

also, I'd expect big changes in the market for caffeine supplements...
