Coffee In The News

This weeks coffee news:

According to MSNBC, Starbucks is closing 600 stores beginning this month through March of 2009. With 16,000 stores worldwide, that is just 4% of Starbucks total empire but it still sounds to me like the coffee giant’s perch is crumbling—just a bit.

I know prices are at an all time high, but this story suggests that if you give up one latte a day, you could pay off your mortgage faster. On Stuff.com, a New Zealand business news site, a story entitled It'll Only Cost You A Coffee A Day says that putting “$3.50 a day into your mortgage and you will save at least $44,000 in interest by paying it off earlier.” I’d rather cut back on a gallon of gas personally. I’ll just walk the extra mile and lose weight at the same time. I know; I need an intervention.
