Heard on the news while ago that coffee could be 17.00 a pound by end of next year. Anybody know how to grow coffee plants?

Sounds like a plan George. I can't live without coffee so I would probably just swallow the price and pay it. I would love to grow some coffee and my own tobacco plants. :D

If that's the case I might have to look into growing it myself also. Up here in Wisconsin I might have to have little knit coats made for the beans so they could survive though!

I all but quit drinking Pop (Coke) several years ago. Not that I don't have one occasionally, but I switched to coffee as my "Stay awake" beverage. May have to go back.

Doom and gloom!! $17.00 coffee and recently saw "them" predicting gas at $5.00 gallon in the not too distant future. A quick cruise to the diner for coffee just might become an expensive luxury.....:( I'll be in real trouble and real broke.:rolleyes:

Guess people will just do what they need too.Larry

But if the Americans have to start paying Canadian-like prices, what kind of prices are we going to have pay, Massey Driver? I already spend $80.00/week on tobacco, $100-$200 a week on gas (depending how much I have to drive), and I don't know how much on coffee. I haven't really kept track. I generally go through a 12-cup pot every day though. Costs have gone up considerably over the last few years, yet every time I consider raising my rates my clients scream bloody murder.

We were $1.03/litre on Christmas Eve. The places in the city are generally a couple of cents a litre more. I'm not sure what it is now, but it sounded like it was going to keep rising.

Isn't that the truth,Everytime I fix or weld something for someone they can't figure out why they have to pay{so much???}.In the end I say next time take it to a welding shop or garage and see what they charge you.With me it's usually a relative who I do stuff for and its always the same thing well you just had that piece of steel laying around and you didn't have to go and buy any welding rods.It's Like Duh! the stuff didn't magically appear in my shop.Gee's.Larry

I'm holding my tobacco cost to about $18.00 a week by rolling my own. I buy two pound cans of coffee at Dollar General for about $6.00, but the store manager told me that it would not last too much longer before it would be goingup. This is not the best coffee in the world, but it is coffee, and drinkable. Might have to see if Daniel can find me a start off a Kentucky Coffee tree.LOL.

All this has made me thirsty, Think i'll make a pot of coffee.

George
