Let's Talk Coffee Costs: Home Brew vs. Coffee Shop Splurge ☕

Hey everyone,

Recently, I did some math on the cost difference between brewing coffee at home and grabbing a daily cuppa from our favorite coffee spot, and the numbers are pretty wild!

My coffee machine, ranging from £50 to £800, set me back an average of £200. Daily essentials: £8 for beans (1 pack monthly), £1.70 for oat milk (5 bottles monthly), and £20 for a reusable cup. The total cost over 3 years: £814 (I drink two cups a day).

On the flip side, daily takeaway coffees at £3.50 in London (5 times per week) add up to £2,520 over three years.

For me, this was a game-changer. I realised that this coffee habit was taking up a significant chunk of my budget – money that could be better spent elsewhere or even saved for something more important.
