You pay for every cup served? That is terrible! I've never heard of that. That's ridiculous.

I quit buying as much coffee when out at a restaurant when it started being $1 and you paid for each cup they served you.

I live in BC and we just brought in HST - that means all restaurant foods and drinks, like coffee are now taxed 12%. Therefore, costs have increased and I probably wouldn't notice if there was an underling of extra with this current issue. I rarely buy coffee out any longer, it's just too much money. Crazy eh.

Maybe thats why my favorite at Tim Hortons has gone from $1.98 to $2.06. Bummer, but if its only nominal, I will still get my coffee in the mornings, the International brand at the stores is so far still the same. emoticon

Benjamin Franklin stated that, “Among the numerous luxuries of the table…coffee may be considered as one of the most valuable. It excites cheerfulness without intoxication; and the pleasing flow of spirits which it occasions…is never followed by sadness, languor or debility.”
