I was thinking of your habbit in terms of product at the Apple store. I think if you switch to instant at home now, you're entitled to get the new dustbin Mac when it becomes available.

You make me feel SO. MUCH. BETTER. I am a mere $1,000 a year coffee wastrel, not including the little something somethings to go along with a stray grand of coffee, or the breakfast coffee constructed carefully at home each day. Oops.

PS. Every single one is in fact a latte. Skinny. No sugar.

Yeah... thats me too. total waste of money. I don't even like it that much. I just drink coffee to get out my box. Dammit I'm just going back to beer and vodka. I may be more interesting that way.

From 2-3 cups a day I gave up weekday coffees earlier this year. This was after reading an article explaining the biologicial mechanisim of caffine. I was surprise to learn that it only takes 7-10 days for your brain to lose it's caffine habituation, so I thought I'd give it a try. I was exceedingly grumpy for the first 4 days but susequent to that I found I didn't feel particularly different to how I was when drinking coffee, so I've stayed off it. I still have the occasional weekend cup.

Mind you I am a complete coffee philistine, take it with sugar and milk. I always regard the GF's disgusted assertion that 'they burnt the grounds' with bemusement as I can't taste the difference.

It is a legitimate use of disposable income. Good coffee is worth the price demanded. If we could make it as good at home we would.

As I tweeted on twit-tah, you could cut your coffee consumption like a boss by dilutting it with 50% bourbon, perhaps Bulleit though I suppose if you are desperate to save money you could have some swill imported from Weston, Missouri where McCormick's has been at it since before the Late Unpleasantness Between the States.

Drink it Black like a Nonna with a little Rakija(Grappa you Philistines).

Save the Cows at the same time.

I think pulling nipples for a drink is wrong.

Even if it's a fkn Cow!

Bangar, that is cheating if you make your own.

Fine drop, I might add.
