Coffee Humor

Bev's Cafe in downtown Red Wing, Minnesota, has a coffee pricing system I've never seen before.

Bev's Cafe coffee price sign, $.90 per cup plus two refills, $1.20 per hour, $1.50 half morning, $2.00 all morning, $2.75 all day, $3.50 allows 1 hour to go home for lunch
I realize the sign is partially tongue-in-cheek, but I can't help wondering:

  • How many people can drink more than one cup plus two refills in less than an hour? I guess it must be enough to make the $1.20 one-hour price make sense.
  • How come all-day coffee is $2.75 but it's $3.5o if you're gone for one of those hours at lunch?

I guess the $2.75 is an incentive to stay and buy lunch?

I like the “Ask about” at the bottom.
