Today my card is empty; a balance of $4.50 plus .75 bought my last Grande Mocha decaf.
I always thought it was ridiculous to pay $5.00 for a cup of coffee. If they aren't making enough profit to pay their baristas a living wage without raising their prices .20 to .30 per cup, then perhaps they need to reevaluate their business practices.
As for me, I will be buying Swiss Miss dark Chocolate Delight packets and dumping them into a cup of home brewed coffee. Saves on gas too - and wear and tear on the tires.
