The Cost of Big Chain Coffee

The Cost of Big Chain Coffee

The Price of Starbucks

The average price of a Starbucks drink in the U.S. is $2.75, but New York City is the most expensive location coming in at $3.25 for a tall cappuccino. And if you go for a decadent seasonal beverage with all the bells and whistles, it can run you over $5.00 per cup of coffee. If you’re like other average customers, you visit a Starbucks between 6 and 16 times per month. And if you’re really addicted, you probably go more often than that.

Using some simple math it’s easy to calculate buying coffee costs you between $19.50 if you go 6 times a month, and $100.00 a month if you go every day. You may be thinking a few hundred dollars a year isn’t that bad, and when you're not paying attention it really may not seem to be. But when you’re trying to find more ways to save money, like most of us are, all of those little purchases add up pretty quickly.

The Value of Higher Realms

One 12-ounce bag of Higher Realms fresh roasted coffee beans makes a total of 16 cups of coffee per bag. At $17.25 for our most expensive 12-ounce bag, you’re making 16 cups of coffee per bag vs 6 cups at Starbucks for $19.50.

At $22.00 for our most expensive 1LB bag, you're able to enjoy Higher Realms fresh roasted coffee every day at a significantly less cost per month than compared to going to Starbucks everyday for $100.00 per month.

You can save even more with Higher Realms by choosing our "Subscribe & Save" option. When selecting your coffee you have the option to chose either a one-time purchase or to subscribe. Subscribing to a coffee subscription will not only score you free shipping on your order, but you'll be able to chose how often you want us to automatically ship your coffee to you. That's right, free shipping and you'll never have to worry about going a morning without our delicious fresh roasted coffee! 

For an everyday coffee drinker, $22.00 a month for Higher Realms is $264.00 a year. Compare that to $100.00 a month for Starbucks totaling $1200.00 a year! These savings really do add up in a good way for those trying to save more money.

The Quality of Higher Realms

On top of the strict regulations adhered to when sourcing and roasting our coffee, we also have a strict “roast then ship” policy…Our customers deserve the freshest beans and blends. We make sure you only get the best by roasting our beans the day they ship! After roasting, we allow the beans to rest before locking in the flavors just in time for pickup. Fresh roasted coffee is like no other coffee you've had before. Trust us when we say you’ll not only smell, but you'll also taste the difference!

We not only have high quality blends made from the finest coffee beans from around the world, but we also offer organic single origin and naturally flavored coffee options that are of a higher quality and freshness than anything you'll get from a big chain coffee shop or even your local mom & pop café down the road.

While store bought coffee maybe cheaper, the problem is that chances are it was sitting in a warehouse for weeks to months before even being put out on shelves for you to purchase. And by the time you get it, it's already going stale. Stale coffee is something you never have to worry about with Higher Realms and is one of the reasons why our coffee taste so much better than anything you've picked up at your local grocery store.


So What Are You Waiting For?

Elevate your morning and ascend to a whole new level of caffeinated bliss with Higher Realms!
