While I was in Hawaii, I was able to convince my wife to let me buy a fancy espresso machine. I justified it by showing the ROI created by a lesser dependecy on Starbucks visits. Here’s the math:
- Grande Americano = $2.30
- 5 Americanos per week * 52 weeks per year = 260 Americanos
- Total Cost = $598 anually
Lindsey estimates her Starbucks consumption to be around $400 per year (before including the banana loaf).
Tamping my first shot.
