Y'know the "buy in bulk and save" enticers you ignore? Sometimes it's true. I received a huge bag of Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee (IMO, the best there is) about five months ago, came to the end of it and looked for more from the source. For an eight-cup pot every morning (and two on Sundays), it works out to about a buck a day! Fresh-ground. Brewed in a proper Chemex.*
And how much are you paying for one cup at Famous Name Coffee Shop? Heh!
I take mine with cream(er) and sugar -- the latter, the real thing. (One of the bigger brands makes their own cola!)
*Or, sometimes, a vacuumatic. Why? 'Cos either one makes great coffee, fast.
