In a NYC local moderately upscale supermarket:Unbranded drip coffee: $5/lbBranded coffee: $7/lbUpscale (e.g. sbux, dd) bagged coffee: $9-12/lbSenseo: $20/lbK-cups: $30/lb ($8.90 for 12)There was also a stack of 80-packs of k-cups for $38, but only one or two had been sold.Oddly enough, the senseos were mostly sold out or not being restocked.
Can you imagine what a 120z cup from Starbucks would be in $/lb? It runs about 3-4X a k-cup. Let's use 3X. 3*30=$90/lb.WOW.
your price per lb for K Kup coffee is wrong. The amount of coffee in 2 12 packs is not 1 lb.
No -- the store has unit pricing:11.4 grams of coffee per k-cup. 454 grams in a pound. a little under 40 k-cups in a pound= 3.3 packages @8.90 works out to around $29.60/lb.
