I have coffee cycles. When it starts to lose its effectiveness, I cut back/off for a while and then when I start drinking it again (only takes a couple of weeks or so) the caffeine hit is that much stronger. Think I spent over $50 for coffee in the last week Jesus Christ. I always wondered what it's be like to move up to the NW and I found my answer. What are you doing to spend $50/week? Are pulls that expensive there? No machine at home?
