The Price of Italian Coffee
Why is coffee in cafes so expensive in the US? Average cost of a coffee is $2.70
Coffee as a raw material is not exspensive, either is milk or sugar.... so why when you walk into Starbucks you can't leave with out dropping $5 or more. On what? a tall latte is $2.95. Why? Most people spend between $3.43 and $4.43 at the popular cafe.
In Italy where coffee culture is huge and the quality is top notch. Coffee in cafes is well priced.
About 1.20euro for an espresso ($1.34)
A cappuccino is about 1.80euro ($2.01)
An even better morning price is coffee we make at home. If you buy coffee at $10.00 and it last 10 to 14 days then we have seriously reduced our coffee budget. Food for thought.
