Why It’s Better to Brew Your Coffee from Home Instead

One small change you can make this year is to brew your coffee at home. This will help you save money, lose weight, or make more time for yourself. You’ll be more likely to stick to set goals by making this simple change in your daily routine. Here are other reasons why it’s better to brew your coffee from home instead of elsewhere.

Help Your Health

While adding cream and sugar to coffee can make it taste better, it also negates many of the health benefits that coffee has to offer. If you want to enjoy the full benefits of coffee, it's best to drink it black.

You can reduce calories by making your coffee at home instead of going to a coffee shop. When you make coffee at home, you can control how much cream and sugar you add, whereas, at a coffee shop, the barista may add more than you would like. For example, if you drink two cups of coffee daily and each cup has 150 extra calories from cream and sugar, that's like eating a McDonald's cheeseburger every day!

If you make coffee at home, you can control how much cream and sugar you add to your coffee. You can also choose which type of milk or creamer to use. For example, unsweetened cashew milk is only 25 calories per cup.

Thus, brewing your coffee at home instead of going to a coffee shop can help you save calories and lose weight. You can control how much cream and sugar you add to your coffee, making it easier to stick to your diet!

Keep Your Cash

Like most Americans, you probably start your morning with a fresh cup of Joe. Many go to a restaurant or coffee chain to get their morning coffee. Depending on where you go, you might spend 2 or 3 dollars for a 12oz cup of black coffee after tax. That doesn’t include the money you might spend on added creams or milk, specialty flavors, or tips for baristas. 

You could buy one cup daily; you spend $730 to over $1800 a year on coffee if you drink three times as much as the millions of Americans who drink three or more cups daily. 

It’s no wonder, then, that the coffee industry is worth $48 billion annually!

You don't need to get rid of coffee to save money. Just make it at home. If you cut back on buying coffee from shops half the time, you'll still save money by the end of the year.

A 12oz bag of whole bean coffee generally costs between $13–17. When broken down by cost per cup, this averages between $0.61 and $0.78 per cup. SCAA-recommended ratios suggest that one should get around 16 servings of 12oz brewed coffee from one 12-oz. bag—meaning that if you drink a lot of coffee and can finish a 12-oz. bag in one week, you're saving around $10 to $20 per week! That’s approximately $500–$1,000 per year!
