Coffee Time - Good News and Bad News and Krispy Kreme

When someone says to you, "I have good new and bad news.", what do you want to hear first?
I usually go for the bad news first. That way I can get it over with and end the whole painful bad news thing with something positive. So, going with that philosophy, I'll tell you the Bad Coffee Time News first. In my Coffee Time posts on home roasting your own coffee beans, I recommended that you buy green coffee beans from the Costcos that have in store roasting stations. It was such a great deal, 30 pounds of beans for about $60. That's two dollars a pound! The Bad News is that Costco will no longer sell you the green beans, only the roasted beans. So Sad!
The Good Coffee Time News is that you can still find a deal on ebay. Watching the coffee bean auctions is a little time consuming but yesterday we won an auction for 15# of green beans. We paid $33.02 plus $10.35 shipping. Add the two together and we spent $43.37 for #15 pounds of green beans which comes out to $2.89 a pound. That's a decent price.

More Good Coffee Time News: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is offering a great deal on their coffee. The New Deal is a 12 oz coffee for 5 cents and the Grand Deal is a 16 oz cup for just 10 cents. Their reasoning behind these great prices is that,
When it was founded during the depths of the Great Depression in 1937, Krispy Kreme sold an 8 ounce cup of coffee for 5 cents. In these challenging economic times, Krispy Kreme is giving people something to feel good about by offering a 12 0unce cup of coffee for only 5 cents and a 16 ounce cup of coffee for only 10 cents.

This is a great deal but probably wont be around forever so warm up at Krispy Kreme with a cup of their signature coffee while it's still cheap.
The Krispy Kreme in our area also offers a great deal on a dozen, called Hot Deals Dozen. Toward the end of the evening, at the manager's discretion, a dozen doughnuts goes on sale for just $5 - that's about .42 a doughnut (they usually sell for .99) and about a $3 savings. It seems that the time that they make the Hot Deals Dozen available varies so it is suggested that you call in the evening and ask. I'm not sure if all of the Krispy Kremes do this but it's definitely worth looking into if you are a doughnut lover.
Thanks Krispy Kreme for giving us something to smile about.

Wait, Bad News - If you eat a dozen doughnuts on a regular basis you'll gain pounds, but Good News - You can work off the extra weight by doing the 52 Card Workout.

Hope you have nothing but Good News today!

You make me laugh! I love your bad news about eating a dozen donuts! But, don't forget that a donut split with a friend has no calories. You are the friend that taught me that. (-: Also, I haven't yet tested the new donut shop in Hayden (at their new location) so maybe we need to check it out!
