That single cup of coffee that we wait in line at the drive through every morning on our way to work is becoming more expensive.
Tim Hortons coffee announced it's 4.5 % price hike on April 4th of this year with U.S prices already being raised by about 3 %. Unfortunately, Columbia has had the worst rains in decades which have created a huge problem with fungus that destroys the coffee plants. This issue is not only the contributing factor as growing economies like China and India who willingly spend the money on the caffein fix, has led to dwindling world coffee stockpiles.
Starbucks announced last month that it will sell packaged coffees for an average of 12 per cent more. The chain has also raised prices on some drinks in its coffee shops last year.
Obtaining that single cup of coffee outside the home or office is becoming more expensive and quite unpredictable with the world market as it is. It only makes economic sense to purchase your own Single Cup coffee brewer. There is a considerable difference in cost with no loss in quality and an increase in variety that caters to all especially those with a serious global conscious.
Brewing your own single cup coffee in the morning before you head out to work not only saves you the aggravation waiting in line at the drive through, which can be quite long if you didn't arrived at the right time when running a little late. Your choices are greater with home single cup brewing and without the higher cost, lost time in line ups at the drive through and the ability to explore other specialty blends from some of the top roasters and brand names in the world.
