Bloke at work used to buy " a coffee" or two every day, us that have flasks encouraged him to do the same, eventually he did, he then could not believe how much money he saved.

At work I only drink tea, I've always taken my own makings.

Anyone that doesn't is either a bit daft, lazy, or earning too much. :wink:

Coffee @ 6p per cup? I suppose you mean those granule things that make a sort of vaguely coffee flavoured drink?

25p will buy you about 20 grams of decent coffee, enough for a 3 cup cafetiere, or one good sized mug, worth every penny compared to instant.

I am amazed that I pay over £5 for Mrs D and I to have a latte in Costa. Okay, it is all milk and a large cup but it is a bit steep for £2.50 a cup. However, you pay for where you sit I guess and a McDonalds coffee is around £1.18, with a higher water content, but you find yourself sitting amongst a load of chavs and scum in the main. (I still think McDonalds hot chocolate is one of the best tasting though) So on balance I think the additional £1.50 not to have to sit next to riff-raff is worth it. I never see the point in take out coffee?

I go to Costa at least once a day.

Sounds like my brother 'take a flask'.

Bet he takes light bulbs out to prevent unneeded usage.

Now that I think about it, I have 2 coffees a day from costa, 6 days a week average

so thats £1.75 x 2 x 365 x 6 / 7 = £1,095 a year! :shock:

(and I don't even drink those poncy metrosexual coffees that are about £2.50 a go)

A person at work comes in with a Starbucks everyday, must cost them a fortune!

I had a customer the other week that brought me and my grafter a large Costa coffee every day for a week...I couldn't believe it! I was pleading with her to stop, but still the Cost'ya coffees kept coming! Madness. Should have asked her to just give me the money :lol:

I was working in a woman's house a few years ago: she brewed up some coffee, I could smell it; "do you want a coffee" she said.

Usually I only drink tea at work but the smell made me accept the offer - she went off and made me a cup of instant crap - which I watered her garden with - stingy cow - I never touch that stuff.

If you like a brew I totally recommend the thermos "work" flask,it ain't cheap at 30 quid but by god it keeps the water scalding for 24hrs,the best flask I've ever owned by a country mile.

You won't regret buying one,check out the reviews on Amazon. It does require pre-heating before putting in your beverage of choice for maximum benefits :thumbright:

The only time it makes sense to buy ready made coffee is if you need an instant caffiene boost with no kettle or power supply nearby. I prefer the cold ones from the chilled section. People who always buy ready made have money to burn.
