As for this, to brew a k-cup will cost $0.75, and their would be no profit since the extra money would be spent on other supplies needed to keep the Keurig running.
The Keurig K140 will be in the library monitored by Mrs. Krause as well as student council members. The student council members will be a positive impact on making sure kids do not mess around when they use it and will constantly remind kids to not abuse their right. Not to mention, the Keurig privileges can and will be shut down if misused. It will then reopen when staff and/or Mrs. Krause okay it. Students should realize that this is a great opportunity, but if not used correctly their right to it will be taken
