Can I Get a Refill?
Life is too short to drink cheap coffee. That's my philosophy — or was until the economy tanked, groceries became scarce, and my favorite coffee shops closed down. In an effort to satisfy both my caffeine craving and a newfound urge to save money where I can, I set out to find the best cheap ground coffee for less than $5 that wasn't Folgers or Maxwell House (the two best-selling brands in the U.S.). Would any of these basic brews satisfy the snob in me? Surprisingly, a couple did. Coffees are ranked worst to first.
