If you haven’t been a broke college student yourself, you’ve definitely known a few of them. A quality education does not come cheap these days. Mix that in with the fact that a lot of college students are looking after themselves and their own finances for the first time in their lives, and don’t necessarily have the most responsible spending habits yet, and it’s no wonder that ramen and KD make up the menu most days.
However, there’s something that’s just a bit off. How many times have you seen a “broke college student” showing up to class every morning with a $5 latte? That’s $25 per week, $100 per month, $1200 per year, and that’s not even counting the days where they’re making multiple trips to their local “insert generic overpriced coffee house brand here.”
It could be worse, but barely…
If expensive coffee is your biggest vice in college, you’re doing pretty good in the grand scheme of things. You may not be able to have your cake and eat it too, but with a little bit of financial diligence, you can certainly have your cash and drink coffee, too.
The problem with buying an overpriced coffee or two every day is the fact that you’re supposed to be paying for conveience, but that’s an oldschool way of thinking about it (In a bad way), because it’s actually a lot less convenient to stop off for copy, wait in line, and spend a fortune on it – than it is to just make your own. If anyone should understand the advancements in technology these days, it should be students, and that’s why a lot of them are so quick to embrace new, better ways of doing things.
For about what you’d spend at the coffee shop in a month, you can be brewing your own coffee and making whatever fancy drinks you’d like, from the comfort of your dorm, without needing any fancy equipment.
A single serve coffee maker will allow you to not only save time in the morning, but to save a fortune. Of course, a traditional coffee maker paired up with bulk beans is going to be the cheapest option, but then you’re losing the convenience of simply popping in a K-Cup or a Nespresso Pod and having a h ot cup of coffee ready to drink within moments.
Join the evolution and revolution of Coffee
A single serve coffee maker in the dorm is a perfect compromise. You save money, but you still get the convenience. It’s the most convience way to brew a cup of coffee, full stop. It takes seconds to prepare, moments to brew, and a split second to clean up afterwards. And we all know how much college students just LOVE to clean up after themselves…
Also there’s another often forgotten benefit, which is probably one of the greatest ones of all. You get to sleep in a good 10-15 minutes later if you aren’t having to budget time for that coffee run. Everyone knows that the exchange rate between 15 morning minutes and 15 evening minutes is totally out of proportion, so saving that 15 minutes first thing is incredibly valuable.
If someone told you that you could sleep in an extra 15 minutes every day, and save over $1000 a month, and never have to wait in line for coffee again, how quickly would you slap them in the face and tell them to stop lying to you? Well, it’s true.
Of course, that’s all moot if you aren’t getting great coffee from your single serve machine, or if you’re making extra trips to the store to pick up pods when you’ve run out. That’s where we come in. We’ll send you fresh, delicious pods or cups for your single serve machine, on a regular basis (which you can choose, based on your drinking habits), so that you’ll never have to worry about running out, and you’ll always have a hot cup within moments of wanting it.
Now, if you’re into lattes and all that fancy stuff, they’re also really easy to make at home for a fraction of the cost. No need to slap anybody in the face, either, because the coffee revolution is real and it’s starting right now. For everyone who has ever had to wait in line, or to make that tough decision between bus fare or an expensive coffee, or had to embarrassingly walk into class late while everyone judged their white coffee cup with the green logo, this one’s for you.
