Aloha kakahiaka! (Good morning in Hawai’ian) Here in Ruidoso, New Mexico we just say “howdy.” Happy Tuesday morning and greetings to all you coffee fiends. That’s fiends not friends. I know how you really feel about coffee! The purpose of this blog is to unite coffee lovers, especially lovers of Kona coffee, and perhaps learn a little about coffee and all the benefits of coffee at the same time. At the end of sixteenth century, Istanbul alone had around 500 cafés. Turkish bridegrooms were once required to make a promise during their wedding ceremonies to always provide their new wives with coffee. If they failed to do so, it was grounds for divorce.
Have you made your morning trip to your neighborhood coffee shop yet? You may want to consider what those trips are doing to your wallet. According to , a recent survey uncovered that the average American worker spends $1,092 on coffee every year. If that doesn’t surprise you, take a look at where your $20 a week habit ranks in comparison to fuel and lunch budgets.
If you think spending more than $1,000 a year on coffee is a high price to pay, you might be surprised to find that it actually comes in just behind your average annual fuel consumption. The average American worker spends $1,476 on their commute.
The real shocker comes from the cost of eating out. You might want to start packing your lunch once you realize that eating out costs an average of $37 a week. That’s $1,850 of hard-earned cash going straight to your stomach each year.
The lesson to be learned is perhaps that you should make good coffee at home. You could pack your lunch and you might even learn to love the office coffee. Just changing those habits could put close to $3,000 back in your pocket this year.
