The real cost of coffee – when you spill it.

Spilled Coffee

Spilled Coffee

A quick peek at Twitter and Facebook suggests that a lot of people spill their coffee. And that’s not even counting those people who are too embarrassed to say anything.


Add the price of the coffee to the cost of the ruined clothes, carpets, computers and MP3 players. Then add the time and work lost in and on the way to the office, and...well, I have no idea what that would come to.

But I bet a big research firm could do a study and show us the cost of spilled coffee is something like a billion bucks a day.

Perhaps coffee companies should be charged for clean-up costs of future spills?

Here is the line-up of spoiled-coffee social media entries from just the last few hours.

# Spilled coffee in my bookbagggg and almost missed the bus..hello weekend nice to see ya!

# Spilled coffee all over my mac yesturday... She's dead and I'm in deep mourning

# that's just great, went into kitchen 2 make a beautiful cup of coffee and spilled the whole damn thing.

# I have now worn my new green polo 2 Fridays in a row. I have now spilled coffee on my new green polo 2 Fridays in a row. I need Oxi-Clean.

# Spilled an entire cup of coffee on my MP3 player this morning, now I can only listen to Everclear. Wonder how long I'll be able to keep that up...

# oh-oh! my computer died. spilled coffee on it and now it's deader than a doornail. I know better than that. pissed at myself.

# Spilled coffee all over my meeting notes. It's going to be one of THOSE days.

# spilled a full cup of coffee on my macbook. out a coffee and a mac. real cool.

# Damn it. I spilled my coffee all over myself trying to rush to the elevator and now I have to go home to change.


To avoid future calamities, here are some supposedly spill-proof coffee mugs from Amazon.com.
