Your Morning Coffee Habit Is Costing You A Lot More Than You Thought

“Just a quick macchiato before work”, you said. “Anyone fancy a mid-afternoon coffee run”, you asked. “The train’s delayed so I’ll have to buy another”, you reasoned.

Good coffee, as those caffeine worshipers among you will know all too well, isn’t cheap. And, as the rise of craft brews and ethically sourced beans farmed by mountain dwellers in some far-flung part of Colombia have made your caffeine fix more tempting than ever, those little purchases will have started to add up.

Well, to show just how much, the creative team at Buddyloans.com have now laid bare this billion pound industry in illustrated form; quite literally spilling the beans, if you will.

On the affordable end of the spectrum, it’s a big well done to Wetherspoon’s, whose takeaway coffee will cost the average person £252.45 over a year; Pret, however, finds itself smack bang in the middle on £548.25, while the big boys over at Starbucks rake in a whopping £663.00 for the same amount of takeaway sales.

Click the gallery below to, ahem, pour, over these startling stats.

And yes, we'll be sticking to the instant stuff from now on too.
