Many people believe the absolutely need a coffee to get going in the morning. Unfortunately, getting this jump start can be quite expensive. The National Coffee Association reports that the cost of brewed coffee is $1.38 per day. If a person buys a coffee each day of the year, this costs him/her about $500/year. Fortunately, a large portion of this expense can be saved by a smart person who decides to brew his/her own coffee. If a 20 year old decided to brew his or her own coffee (costs about 25 cents per day), he or she could have nearly $950,000 saved by the time he/she retired.
