Coffee, Tea, or Me?
I wanted to give you a simple example of a small change that you probably never thought of. It is meant as a way to both improve your life and serve as an example of the benefits of thinking “outside the box.” The “box” being your daily routine. Pre-pandemic many of us liked to get a cup of something at our favorite coffee shop. Part of the reason for going was the ambience. However, the pandemic broke that routine for us.
Recently, I have noticed that there are long drive-in lines at the local Starbucks. People sit in their cars in the early morning for 10-15 minutes to get a cup. People do this because they are addicted to coffee and are either in a hurry or because indoor seating ended.
A 16-ounce Americano Grande costs around $4.50. If you do this seven days a week for a year the cost is a little over $1,600. You can buy the top of the line De'Longhi Dinamic for $1,500 from Amazon. Now, I am not pushing the De’Longhi. I just happen to own one. Over the years, I have tried different espresso machines and like this one.
