They May Raise Our Coffee Prices, But They’ll Never Take Our Freedom

To the fat cats over at Bridge Fresh market,

According to your sign, coffee prices increased 13%, and yet the price of your small coffee jumped 25% and your large coffee 20%. Stop hiding behind your graphs—you are greedy opportunists looking to fleece the working man at every turn. If you want to jack the price of your coffee, just do it without your Machiavellian logic. Look me in the eye when you take my quarter. I don’t want your “Sorry!”s. I want your recognition that you know exactly what you are doing. You are cowards.

Sincerely,
The Consumer

Also the price of tea went up even though it just says coffee prices went up. Restaurants do have to charge like 110% more than they paid for it though, so that 25% increase does make sense.

But look at the graph! The right side’s got to be 10 times higher than the left side…

You’re not taking into account that a pound of coffee has also become 22% heavier over the last quarter, increasing transport costs.
