You can save around $100 per month simply by making coffee at home.  Many of us hit the road in the morning and go straight to the local coffee shop drive-through.  Spending between $2.50 and $5 each morning can really add up over the course of a week.  All of this adds up to one expensive habit. reported that “making your coffee at home will run about $0.12-0.28 per cu — small beans compared to store-bought. Assuming the higher end of that estimate calculates to just $1.40 per week or $5.60 each month. For that sweet price, you can afford to take a refill to the office in a reusable travel mug ($11.20 per month) for a later pick-me-up”.

As for me, I enjoy the variety and quality of coffee  that I find from ,  however, there are many of shops where you can get great gourmet coffee whether you want to order it online and have it delivered to your door like me, or go to the store itself and pick it out.  You get great coffee and a great value.  Even in these tough economic times, you don’t have to sacrifice your coffee to balance your budget, just modify your routine.

One thought on “Save Money: Make Coffee at Home

  1. I have been making my coffee at home for several months now, and have realized quite a bit of savings!
    The one thing I haven’t mastered yet is the non-dairy latte, which I used to buy regularly at Starbucks. My espresso machine works well, and makes a good dairy latte, but each time I’ve tried to make it with soy milk (or almond or hemp), I notice a distinct metallic taste in the drink. I’ve tried sweetened, unsweetened, flavored, unflavored, generic, brand name… It isn’t the machine, since I notice the taste when simply adding non-dairy milk to my coffee at home.
    Can anyone help with this?
