Ok - some of you won't talk to me now :)
I never got into the Starbucks coffee a day habit. I heard a story on the radio once that if you buy 4-5 a week, you could've invested that money and by the time you retire it might have amounted to about $40K.
In any case, I was having a coffee once or twice a week, but it's too darn expensive and I feel guilty. So I started bringing instant into work. I'm a flavored coffee fluff - no black for me. So I've been getting International Foods. For the price of 1 Starbucks, I can get maybe 20 cups of IF coffee. But I'm starting to get really sick of the flavors. The only one I consistently like is hazelnut. Many of the others have a distinctly artifical taste - could be powdered creamer.
In any case, is there a comparable, instant, flavored, budget conscious coffee out there that you like? Or, how do you wean yourself from the $20/wk Starbucks habit? [Yes I have coffee at work. No it's not any good.]
