High-Priced Coffee

High-Priced Coffee
The most expensive coffee in the United States isn’t Starbucks Dark Espresso Roast ($12.95 a pound) or Gedeo Single Origin Espresso ($25 a pound) or La Cima Finca el Injerto beans from Stumptown Coffee Roasters ($38 a pound). It’s those little bitty Keurig K-cups for individual-serving coffee makers. Empty out enough 7 gram Nespresso Arpeggio pods to make a pound and it will run you $51.

    Another reason not to buy K-Cups. The covieniance just isn’t worth it.
