Coffee in the cafeteria: $1.26 (no refill unless you bring a re-usable mug)
Coffee at Caribou: $1.87 (at least 1 free refill)
The coffee in the cafeteria is not worth the $0.61 difference. Weak and poor flavor. I try it about once every 6 months to a year to justify the 'Bou.

No, there is no free coffee here. You can violate the rules and put a coffee pot in your cube, but eventually you will be asked to remove it.

Why on earth is it against the rules to have a coffee pot?

I believe it is phrased as "fire hazard" and "extra electrical load." One is a mediocre reason at best, the other is pretty much BS. My personal belief is that they have a contract with the cafeteria company not to have free coffee available.

The district tried to charge teachers $25 a year to use a coffee pot. You can guess how that flew. (Crap like this always happens in the interim between superintendents. Some bureaucratic cog decided to take "initiative")

I have a coffee maker with a thermos-like carafe NOT a heating element. It is on for about 5 minutes every time I make coffee. I know I do not use $25 worth of electricity during the school year. They can take a flying leap.
