I understand that Sagebrush Coffee is not cheap. I realize that I pay more for unroasted beans than most people pay at a grocery store for their coffee. I know that this is a premium product and isn't priced for everyone.
However, before I started roasting my own beans, I was a regular at my local coffee shop. I was the guy that the barista saw in the doorway and started making my morning Americano. I bought Americanos every day because they were only $3 instead of the nearly $6 it cost to purchase a latte. I was saving money. And I'll tell you what, "cheap" Americanos were in the minority.
So how expensive is Sagebrush Coffee? I started to answer this question by breaking down the price vs. a Keurig because they seem to be the most popular in home brewing method these days. According to their website, they charge about $0.68 / pod, that translates to $20.56 per pound or almost the same price as Sagebrush Coffee's premium fresh roasted product.
Then, I went through my five favorite brewing methods, and I decided to break out the cost per cup for the average bag of Sagebrush Coffee. All of which are considerably less expensive than that Americano I used to buy.
So how much does Sagebrush Coffee cost? Less than a buck a cup.
If you have any questions about any of these brewing methods, please email me.
Very interesting. I need to measure and see how many grams of coffee I am using per cup in my French press.
