I have no problem spending 5 bucks for a coffee... I know it's a lot and I could make it at home for a fraction of that, but I enjoy being out and sitting with friends and the coffee takes awhile to make. 5 bucks buys me 45 minutes of a relaxing time. But when I sit in the coffee shop, why can't I have a ceramic cup? Is it so hard to wash 'em? You tout your coffee grounds for compost (love it!), but why not take it to the next level (the one that's been standard for centuries) and use re-usuable mugs?
