    How often do you buy coffee? I love Dunkin Donuts and I have gotten in the bad habit of buying a latte before work! I'm thinking of getting a Keurig so it is easy to make coffee at home.

    About once a month, I buy a can of Maxwell House. I set up the pot the night before, and it brews on a timer set ten minutes before I wake up.

    Tried the whole "brew your own". It's not for me. Yes, I could save probably 2k a year cutting the habit, but I've decided I don't care.

    Assuming you mean a cup of coffee, I buy coffee out maybe 3-4 times a year. I make my coffee at home. I just prefer the consistency and taste of the coffee I use. Coffee out is usually hit or miss.

    If you can afford it and choose to use your money that way, why not. It is no different than people spending money on any other want.

    Never.

    I don’t actually like coffee, and there aren’t any coffee places here either. I’ve heard the coffee is decent at a local convenience store, and several people stop at McDonalds. I don’t pass either one on the way to work.

    DH has a Keurig, and he takes a coffee to work every day. I have a Keurig at work, but I use it for hot water for soup.

    5 of us take turns doing the morning coffee run, so each of us just buys one morning a week.

    I drink my coffee before I leave. Then I switch to tea once I get to school. I don't buy cups of coffee out and about usually. It's got to be a real special occasion.

    I'm a regular at a local coffee shop that I love going to -- I buy coffee from there probably 2-3 times a week. Other days I make coffee at home.
    Since I'm not a big shopper, most of my spending is on food and coffee once my bills/tithe/savings are done.

    I generally don’t buy coffee as I can’t get over the smell and bitter taste. Though, I do like those glass-bottled vanilla flavored ice coffee drinks.

    A favorite Stabucks drink of mine is call a Passion Tea Lemonade and I make sure to have the barista add two pumps of cane sugar and two pumps of raspberry. It’s delicious, I think.

    I am not a coffee fan either, but I have a Keurig that I use for tea, cider, and hot chocolate. The k-cups can be expensive, but you can also fill your own.

    Plus, I can offer guests coffee now, so it’s earned its spot on the counter.

    Pass it off as my ignorance, but I thought Keurig machines were for coffee only! You’re telling me I can basically get instant hot chocolate?!

    The price is no object for me.

    What have I been doing with my life?!

    Haha, it’s not good for you, but it’s quite tasty — I even convinced my colleagues to try it and they love it now!!!

    And it’s also why I only have it once a week. It all works out, though, because I seldom eat sweet things.

    Lol yeah I'd probably be barfing the rest of the day! It sounds like that would way exceed my sugar intake limit... For a month!

    My Never is "It's against my religion" but I really do like the smell of it.

    Hot chocolate. Tea. Soup. Plain hot water.

    Not just for coffee.
