# Coffee Profit Calculator

The **Coffee Profit Calculator** helps café owners or anyone selling coffee calculate their profit based on the price they sell each cup for, the cost of producing each cup, and the total number of cups sold. This tool is essential for understanding the profitability of your coffee business and making informed pricing decisions.

### Formula

The formula to calculate coffee profit is:

**CP = (PC − CC) ∗ C**

Where:

**CP**is the Coffee Profit (in dollars),**PC**is the Price per Cup (in dollars),**CC**is the Cost per Cup (in dollars),**C**is the number of Cups sold.

### How to use

- Enter the
**Price per Cup**(PC), which is the amount you charge customers for each cup of coffee. - Enter the
**Cost per Cup**(CC), which includes the cost of coffee beans, milk, sugar, labor, and other expenses associated with producing a single cup. - Input the
**Number of Cups Sold**(C) during the period you want to calculate. - Click “Calculate” to see your total coffee profit (CP).

### Example

Let’s say you charge **$3.50 per cup** (PC), and it costs you **$1.50 per cup** (CC) to produce. If you sold **100 cups** (C), then:

**CP = (3.50 – 1.50) * 100****CP = 2.00 * 100 = $200**

Your total profit from selling 100 cups of coffee would be **$200**.
