Not everything you buy needs to be the cheapest you can possibly find. In fact, in some cases, cheaper isn’t necessarily better.
This could be because the item you’ve bought is not as durable and the value for money is better at higher price points.
Sometimes it’s worth going to a higher price point because the lowest price point is not, actually, worth buying at all.
In my humble and totally biased, obsessive and neurotic opinion, coffee is a compromise-free consumable. If you’re going to insist on buying cheap coffee, I think you’re better off not drinking it at all.
I can’t imagine not drinking coffee, and life is too short to drink bad coffee (or wine). As a person with a carefully curated coffee dependency, I’ve been struggling with this for a while now.
If you want good coffee on a regular (daily) basis, then that’s almost a budget line-item in and of itself. The best way to ensure you understand the cost, guarantee the quality and avoid impulse-purchase situations is to get in on one of the many (oh my goodness so many) coffee subscription services out there.
In the new world of social distancing, coronavirus paranoia and responsible collective behaviour, getting your coffee delivered is also one more way to avoid running unnecessary errands and crowding public spaces.
