I love drinking coffee and it’s something I don’t deny myself very often. I will admit I spend a lot on coffee sometimes and I really need to cut back on that spending. It’s the only thing I splurge on on a regular basis but sometimes you have to, right? (that’s what I tell myself to justify it! LOL).
The thing that can get very expensive at coffee shops is the gourmet drinks like the Expresso’s & Latte’s. My favorite is the Caramel Macchiato at Starbucks. I don’t have them too often mostly because I don’t have a local Starbucks but when I do go there I always get one! At $3.80 a pop for a grande (medium 16oz) they get very expensive pretty fast!
I purchased the Maxwell House Caramel Latte Macchiato T-Discs for Tassimo Coffeemakers (Pack of 2) from Amazon for $12.96. There are 16 total servings which comes out to $.81 a cup. Now I know that the initial cost of the Tassimo is pretty high but I saved $48 just on this purchase compared to stopping at Starbucks.
Right now you can get the Tassimo Single-Serve Coffee Brewer for only $99.99 with free shipping on Amazon so after 32 cups you’d have your money back for the cost of the Tassimo and then you’d be ahead.
Oh did I mention that the Maxwell House Caramel Latte Macchiato is really good?? Oh yeah it sure is! My 6 year old loves the way it smells so she’s always asking me when I will make another!
