Saving Money on Coffee

I love my coffee, but the prices continue to go up so I am sharing some things that have helped me save $$ on my coffee.

  1. Make your coffee at home and take it with you. This is a huge savings over even the senior coffee price at McDonald's.

  3. Make a smaller pot of coffee instead of the whole pot. I find I actually drink less if I make a smaller pot of coffee. After coffee is gone, I start drinking water all day.
  4. Buy your coffee in bulk when possible. We belong to Costco, they often have coupons on Folgers. I have also purchased on line through Amazon when they have coffee sales.
  5. I have a friend who buys green coffee beans and roasts her own. She said it is fun to do and saves her money.
  6. I also use coupons when they are in the paper and grocery flyers. Walmart, if you shop there, will take another store's ad and match the price.

There really is never a reason to pay full price for coffee.

These are all great ideas. Have you tried the coffee singles? They are just like tea bags, and with each one is a consistently good cup of coffee. I pay about .19 per cup, too, which is pennies compared to what you pay for coffee even at home.

I even love the lack of space I now have again for no coffee pot, and I also save on filters. You can take several with you and keep them in your car for those times when you really need a quick cup and are close to a convenience store. Most of the time, they will give or sell you a cup of coffee for .25 and you are still ahead of the price.

And if you brew your own at home when you're 1st pot is empty just add a teaspoon of fresh grounds to that morning's coffee grounds and brew another full pot.

I used to make a pot of coffee with 5 scoops, but when we looked at little ways to cut down expenses, I started making with only 4 scoops. It still tastes great, and saves 20% on each pot of coffee.

I never thought about buying green coffee beans and roasting myself. Thank you for the tip!

Also buying whole beans over ground sometimes is cheaper I find. Plus I get to use the blender a lot more than just a kitchen ornament.

Left over coffee can be put in a glass jar and refrigerated to either be used as Ice Coffee later or heated in the micro wave.
