Do you prefer to buy your coffee out or make it at home?

Asked by nightwolf5 (2958points) March 15th, 2016

I like buying it out once in a while, but prefer to make and have it at home, as having it out is on the spendy side.

Both. If I’m meeting friends, or have been working at home a lot, then having a coffee in a coffee shop is lovely. However, we have a coffee machine and my husband makes a fabulous coffee. So if I want a coffee at home that’s fine too. I tend to drink tea at home most of the time.

Out. I’ve never had the knack to brew myself really good coffee at home. In fact, I’m no good at making anything in the kitchen from scratch.

Anything, as long as it’s good enough.

In the morning or when I’m home, home made coffee is good enough. When I’m out, I’ll buy it out. I’m pretty easy that way.

Both. I make a pot of coffee from Graffeo Roast every morning. And then at work I go to the Peet’s across the street from my office.

On the weekends, I start my day by walking to a nearby coffee place for a triple latte. Then make a pot of coffee while I savor that.

I don’t drink coffee, but my husband does. We make it at home 99.2% of the time. We are way too cheap to buy it out. We even use reusable keurig cups to save some money.

Tea at home; coffee out once or twice a week. I do make coffee if I have overnight guest who drink it.

Both. In the morning, I but a $1.00 iced coffee at McDonalds. At night, I make hot coffee in my Nespresso machine.

I’m a tea guy. But I never buy pre-made tea in a shop. If I go to a coffee place I just get hot chocolate.

Allie sent me some tea for my birthday that she bought when she was in Dubai. She knows me well. I love everything citrus.

Mostly make it at home or work. But this question is a bad influence on me because I read it and then bought a takeaway coffee at lunchtime. Bad @nightwolf5

I am the same as you, @nightwolf5.

I do both, depending on how much time I have.

Home, I rarely buy a coffee when I am out. On occasion I will stop into a A.M. p.m. or gas station store and get a cup of the toffee coffee or mocha or hot chocolate but I never go to Starbucks or other over priced, over rated coffee places.

If I’m out and buying it, I have two gift cards from DD that are for ten large coffees each. If I don’t want a large coffee, I’ll pay cash and keep the gift card for when I feel like large. I’ll also get coffee at McD’s, which sells Paul Newman’s coffee, and it’s really good for $1. I will never, ever buy Starbucks (aka “Megabucks”) because I don’t like the taste and I don’t like the price.

At home I use a Keurig. I love the convenience. Best homemade coffee is a French Press.

I prefer most everything made at home rather than buying it out.
