How Much Does A Bag Of Coffee Really Cost?

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.

Very interesting. I need to measure and see how many grams of coffee I am using per cup in my French press.

Last year, we experienced a significant decline in Sumatran offerings due to the excessive rain they experienced during their primary harvesting season. As you can imagine, it was quite the juggling act at the shop as some of our best-selling dark roast coffees came from Sumatra.

Every cup seems to a new flavor- an enjoyable flavor. I sure like the Ethiopia coffees always good and this one of my favorites.

Best customer service!

I purchased the sampler 2 pack and received the Kenya Gold and the Costa Rica which is a rich honey process ! They both are great.. Ground for my Kuerig

Very strong but not in flavor

Maybe I ordered the wrong coffee?
