I just paid $4.25 for an iced coffee - what the...?

Okay, so the quality of coffee has recently risen in NYC. Certainly. With the emergence of Stumptown, Blue Bottle, etc., we have finally become a reputable coffee town. The prices, however, are out of control.

I'm a big fan of iced coffee in the summer and I'm lovin' the cold brewed stuff. Birch Coffee and Think Coffee being my two recent faves. But today I ordered an iced coffee at Grumpy. It cost 4.25! I mean come on, I'm happy to pay 2.75, 3 bucks, maybe even a quarter or so more (I do understand the labor involved with making iced coffee well), but 4.25? Jesus!

Costa Rican bean. Great. Brewed in a clover. Nice. That'll be 4.25 please.!
