    What happened?? Is there some sort of coffee bean shortage?

    Every few weeks I buy 4 - 1# bags of coffee at Dunkin Donuts. I do that because if you buy 4 bags they give you a pretty good discount. 4 bags is normally $20. Well, today I go in and they are now charging $26 for 4 bags!!! :Angry

    Is China starting to drink coffee or something?
    Cheapest I have ever seen it is 4 # for $24 ( 5.99 each) usually during the holidays.

    normally they are $7.99 each so the 4 #'s for $26 is the best deal you will see in our area until the holidays when it goes to the $5.99 price (if you buy 4)

    Don't forget, Dunkin just went public. Now it's the bottom line for the shareholders.

    Do you dry out and reuse paper towels?

    Of course not...paper towels ! I might as well flush my money. I dry my hands with dryer lint I collect from the laundromat.

    Pretty soon we're going to read where some caffeine-crazed, jittery dude in a tank top pulls a gun on the Publix clerk for a cart full of Colombian drip grind. Gots ta have it!

    That is still way cheap. Most of the fancy stuff that goes into the grinder here is $9.99 to $14.99 per "lb." Although, that pound has gone down to 14oz in some cases. Still worth it.

    Here's the next step: Roast your coffee at home.

    Basically you order your beans "green" from wherever you want in the world, roast them in the old fashioned air-poppers (I bought two at some Salvation Army sort of store a few years ago for a total of $3. They both still work perfectly).

    You roast them outside, because it gets kind of messy, but the coffee is amazing. Sweet, clean - there is no other way to get truly fresh coffee. A roasting will be fresh for almost a week. But twice a week roasting is best. An excuse to hang in the garage and drink a beer.

    Once you've roasted a few different beans and blended your own concoction, you are ready for the ultimate cup of coffee:

    For what it's worth, the price of coffee at uroastem has gone up about 20% over the past 3 years.
