When you first moved to a big city after college, you had absolutely no problem throwing a huge amount of money away everyday at your favorite local coffee shop. Your hipster transformation began as soon as you rejected Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts as too pedestrian, in favor of more expensive, fair trade mocha loca choca concoctions.
"I am a cool city person now," you'd say to yourself every morning, handing over money you didn't have for a $6 latte. Suddenly, you were wearing more and more flannel. You were wearing "fashionable" glasses that were once worn only by child molesters. Then you moved into your late 20s and realized that you have been working for almost 10 years and have no savings. Your hipster coffee addiction (as well as other nighttime vices) has cost you any semblance of a nest egg you might have had if you just drank the brown sludge they gave you for free at work.
You decide to tighten the belt to start saving the money you should have been saving all along. You look yourself squarely in the mirror and say, "Hey! No more fancy coffees, you spoiled asshole! You need to make your own coffee at home and take it to work in a travel mug like every other suburban loser!"
BUT, just because you've decided to be more economical and make your coffee at home doesn't mean you have to sacrifice taste. You can get yourself a Rhetoric Coffee Subscription (starts at $15 per month) that delivers fresh, unique roasts directly to your door each month. Bonus: each bag is screen-printed with an original piece of art commissioned from comic book artists. You might not be able to go to your hipster coffee shop anymore, but original comic book artwork on the bag of beans you're going to brew at home is pretty damn obnoxious (slash awesome), right?
