Homes are too exxy to think about purchasing, eating avo is like eating gold, and even catching public transport seems to rack up thousands of dollars. At the rate we’re going, it looks like we’ll be living under our parent’s roof till eternity, and scabbing free office food whenever we have the chance.
But this isn’t the scariest part – if you’re a coffee-drinker (which cray person isn’t?), you will spend an average of $1,423.50 each year just on coffee alone. Stat. Add fancy nut milks to the mix and you’re probably looking at approximately $2k being spent on liquid that just comes out the other end.
But as tough AF it is to live in Sydney, coffee is just too good of a pleasure to give up, which is why Hey You, Australia’s leading order ahead app, has searched high and low to find out where you should be purchasing your morning Joe from if you want to avoid going broke sooner than expected.
Drawing data from their 550,000 users, they found flat whites are the most in-demand coffee in all metro areas, except for South Sydney – where cappuccinos took out first place.
They then examined the cheapest places to pick up a flat white, and the results are quite surprising:
- Sydney CBD: $3.70
- North Sydney CBD: $3.75
- South Sydney: $3.85
- North shore: $3.95
- Inner west: $4.05
- Eastern suburbs: $4.05
The reason for the Eastern suburbs being the most exxy place to buy a flat white comes down to the fact that coffee drinkers in this area are more likely to indulge in fancy nut milks like macadamia and coconut milk. Yes, Instagram is living proof of this, guys.
But our question is, do cafes price-match? Asking for a friend…
For more on the topic of coffee, this is why it makes you poo, and this is the coffee that burns fat as you drink it.
