Almost 8 out of 10 consumers think that the price of coffee at a cafeterias is expensive or very expensive. In particular, 25% consider it too expensive and 52% expensive, while only 2% find that coffee outside their home as cheap.

“Yes, it’s expensive but I will not stop having it, it’s what we enjoy doing and we have stopped doing so many other things we were used to, I will stop this too?”, 35-year-old Giorgos Papadimas told Anadolu Agency (AA).

According to the survey, regarding the price of takeaway coffee, 43% consider it high and 10% very high. Only 10% find the price reasonable while 5% find the price of coffee low.
