Jimmy Butler is charging players $20 for a cup of coffee in NBA bubble

The NBA bubble has limited options players can have while staying safe, and Jimmy Butler is well aware of that.

In an interview with ESPN's Rachel Nichols on "The Jump," Butler revealed he has created his own coffee shop from within the bubble. Butler has a French press as well as other coffee accessories, and he's making an insane profit from it: He charges players $20 for a single cup.

"I'm working on my coffee skills," Butler said. "After my career, I'm opening my coffee shop. Right now, I'm charging 20 bucks a cup. So if you want some, come through."

The slightly good news for players who want some of Butler's coffee is that his price stays the same no matter the size — small, medium or large. The bad news, though, is Butler might be raising it an additional $10 — because he knows he can.

"You can't get coffee nowhere here," Butler said. "So I might bump it up to 30 bucks a cup. Just depends. People here can afford it. So ain't nobody complaining."

Butler's teammate Meyers Leonard shared a photo of the menu (before deleting it), and he wasn't joking about the price. Butler makes it clear he accepts "cash only" and takes "no I.O.U.'s."

Butler has quite the array of options, something for every coffee drinker.

Available at "Big Face Coffee" are:

  • Latte
  • Pour Over
  • "Cappucino"
  • Americano
  • Espresso
  • Red Eye
  • Mocha
  • Macchiato
  • Cafe Au Lait

Coffee has been a passion of Butler's for a while. Back in 2019, he was spotted with his own coffee cups, which he brought to the NBA bubble as well.

So whenever Butler's NBA career ends, expect "Big Face Coffee" to be the next big thing. Watch out, Starbucks.
