Can I afford single serve coffee?

It seems that everywhere I look there is a new single server coffee popping up. I understand the convenience, but after seeing the some recent articles about the cost it makes me stop to consider.

I usually pay about $10-$12 a pound for whole bean coffee, depending on what I’m currently drinking, but is seems that single serve coffees equate to about $50 a pound. Is the convenience worth it?

That’s for you to decide, but the good news is that most single serve machine manufacturers sell inserts that allow you to use any ground coffee in the machine. If you are worried about the cost, but like the convenience, you may want to check some of these inserts out.
