Every single one of those seven children (my mom's dad among them) went to university. I identify so, so strongly with this part of my own personal heritage.
Unfortunately I highly doubt regardless of someones work ethic that this story would play out the same present day.

I know the OP was old, but as I read this my opinion changed slightly.
I'm slightly ticked to learn that the box of coffee is more expensive than buying individual servings. One of the office managers brings it in regularly and I wonder if she realizes. I only do aeropress, myself, but I'm irked on her behalf. Only slightly, because I suppose demand is part of the equation, so it could be seen as a sort of 'catering/convenience' charge. I would not blame people from ordering separate coffees though.
One of the foodcourt restaurants had their combos priced more expensively than buying the items separately. When asked, they said the high school students never check. They lost me as a customer, though. Youth and stupidity is like a disability - sure they're a target market, but trying to rip them off is bad karma.
I'm guessing the extra cost here is the box. No problem with that - what you are actually buying after all is coffee & packaging.
