Doing some coffee math

Saw this a few days ago from @dontheideaguy.

I’m trying to figure out why every other place that sells beans or ground coffee doesn’t make a point of being happy to take ANY Starbucks bag (not just the “specially marked bags”), year-round.

Toss that old bag or make an example of it.

Staple it to the wall like a number on a scoreboard and sell that Starbucks bag totin’ person a bag of *your* coffee.

Lessee, give away a $2 (retail) cup of coffee while selling a $10-$15 bag of fresh roasted beans? OK, if I have to.

It isn’t just reading that’s fundamental. Math is too.

    I recall a pizza place offering a $5 discount if you tore their competitor’s ad out of the Yellow Pages and brought it into the store. The coffee bag could be a Starbucks competitor’s way of collecting scalps!
