# 2011 Coffeeshop of Record Report

Ever since May of 2005 I've had the habit of designating a local coffeeshop as my "Coffeeshop of Record" — it's the place I always hang out at, and my favorite local caffeine establishment. Or, as I sometimes put it, "my drug dealers". Because I'm also that kind of person, I keep statistics of how much I spend there.

Shortly after moving to Ypsilanti I designated the Ugly Mug Cafe as my CsoR. This previous year's statistics (16 February 2010 - 15 February 2011) are:

• Total Spent: $345.50 • Days Visited: 128 • Items Noted: 196 • Avg/Visit:$2.70
• Avg/Item: $1.76 • Avg/Week:$6.74

It adds up, doesn't it? (This is the reason I keep track of it). But, the way I figure it hanging out at the Ugly Mug is my primary form of entertainment, and \$7 a week is relatively cheap as those things go.

Notes for those who care: supplies I purchase at the CsoR do not count, e.g. beans I purchase at the Mug for use at home or at work are not counted.
