I figured it out... for me I make my own coffee at home and throw out about 25% on average.

I spend .86¢ a day. $314 annually

1/3 the national average. https://theamericang...year-on-coffee/

leave more to spend on the macallan ;)

I can go weeks without spending anything on coffee. I get some for home when I grocery shop and I have it for free at work. I'm amazed that some people spend so much on it when it's so easy not to.

Don't drink coffee and have soft drinks infrequently, so not very much.

Never had a cup of coffee in my life, but I make up for it with Mountain Dew and Monsters. About 20 bucks a week easy.

I gave up energy drinks because of the cost, and I probably go through about 24 Diet Cokes a week. So I dunno... maybe $6 a week. Let's call it a dollar a day.

During most of the year about $25 a month, on coffee and Coke.   That increases to 35 in season when Kosher Coke becomes available - I'm a junkie for that stuff.  Not a fan of Mt. Dew/Mello Yello etc.

Iced Tea all year for me.   I brew of quart every evening and leave it in the fridge for my morning  pre-gym consumption.

2 cups a day of Maxwell House at the office. I dunno...maybe $12 a month? Damn sure not buying those half-skim-extra-bullshit-mocha-lattes at Starbucks.

I average about two cans of Vanilla Coke and/or Mello Yello per day.

I always buy it when it's on sale, so I spend about 50 cents a day.  Is that good or bad?  :o :D

Probably right around $10 a week. Most weeks I brew coffee at home a couple times, buy an energy drink, and go out for a latte.

Shit, that's $500 a year

Maybe $ 5.00 a month?  I used to be the iced tea queen but it started giving me migraines.  :(    I pretty much stay away from caffeine except for a can of coke (or Vanilla Coke :heart: ) every few weeks.

$20 per month, maybe.  I buy several bags of beans when they're on sale at Costco.  My daughter also gets a pound per week free as a Starbucks employee, so we're set for coffee.

Some call it soda, I refer to it as the elixir of the gods.

I like diet vanilla coke from a fountain, with a twist of lemon.
