I’ve been buying fair trade coffee for almost as long as I’ve been drinking coffee. I drink decaf because of a long-ago ulcer. I’m running low on the coffee I bought before I started my budget, so I started looking into alternatives. I tried some coffee from bulk barn that was on sale for $8/lb. It wasn’t very good. This week, a fair trade coffee I like went on sale for $12/lb. I bought a bag. I calculated the cost of a pot (I use 6 Tbsp of grounds for a 1 litre french press) and it’s $1. Given that I don’t drink coffee every day and I’ve avoided drinking coffee away from home,  it seems like a reasonable expense.
