Making Good Coffee on a Tight Budget
Someone had asked about making good coffee with a tight budget, so we chimed in with our thoughts. I decided to post our response to them up here for everyone:
To get started, You can get a Clever Dripper, a hand-mill burr grinder, and a 100 pack of filters for $45.
Secondly, buy your own coffee and buy it whole bean. Now to do some math on money you'll save buying whole bean coffee: $16 for a 12 oz (.75lb or 340g) bag of coffee is about what you can expect to pay for good coffee.
Since we normally weigh out our coffee I'll break it down in grams. One 12 oz (355mL) cup of coffee takes about 22 grams of coffee. That means that you'll be getting 15 cups of coffee out of that 12 oz bag of whole bean coffee. Total per cup cost: $1.07.
