Buy an Espresso Maker & Save Money
It's not hard to think (hope) that you can save money when you kick the coffee chain habit and bring the espresso experiences home. The idea is that instead of paying several dollars for an espresso you can just pay a few cents for an espresso. A Grand Latte is costing about $3.50 these days, and if you are getting one every day, you are talking $3.50 * 365 = $1277.50.
Wow, even if you cut down to weekdays, that's still $3.50 * 5 days per week * 52 weeks = $910.
Doesn't include the coffeecake or the Venti Latte you have on Fridays....
If you have a seven day habit, you could easily afford a Super Automatic like the Gaggia 90500 or a Jura Capresso E8.
Even on the weekday habit you could still get a nice semi-auto like a Gaggia Classic Stainless.
Add some coffe and milk in and you are your own barista. It may take a few more months to pay out with supplies, but there's nothing like going no further than your own counter for a great espresso.
