A while ago I ruminated on how buying a new espresso machine actually saved me money. Okay, so it was more justifying the purchase to myself but it still had me wondering up until today just how much I was saving so I got out the calculator, measuring jug and scales and figured it out.
7 grams of coffee = 14 cents
190 ml of milk = 23 cents
Power & water, hard to say ’cause it’s so small but let’s 5 cents.
That’s a grand total of (…and carry the two) 42 cents per coffee.
Instead of $3.70 for a standard coffee up the street.
Wow. Even with staff and other overheads it shows just how much profit there is in that little bean.
