Coffee Prices around Australia. Canberra does OK

Canberra is apparently about average when it comes to cost of a cappuccino, according to the Gilkatho Cappuccino Price Index for Q1 this year

I went searching after seeing this article on another news website

Maybe this is why petrol is more expensive?

[ED – alternatively there’s the glory of the Aldi coffee machine pictured]

The other cost comparison you can make with capsules is what are they charging you per gram of often fairly ordinary quality coffee. If you’re up for around $0.75 for a 7.5g capsule, you are looking at $100 a kilo pricing for the coffee. That’s getting up there with some of the better single-origin coffees in the world, bought as beans. For example, I can get pretty decent Ethiopean Harrar beans (proper Mocha) or some really good, nutty, Cuban beans at $52 a kilo, plus a bit extra for packing and shipping.

Local suppliers will offer OK beans closer to $25 a kilo. Not swish, but likely to be better or on par with capsule contents at $100 a kilo.

You can buy refillable capsules and choose your own coffee.

stove top espresso maker uses a ghastly amount of coffee and is a royal pain to clean in comparison to the one button press cleaning of a pod coffee maker.

i’m a convert from mocha pots. I know whereof I speak.

Quick rinse under the tap is all it needs. About once a month it gets a scrub with steel wool. And every few months it gets a new rubber O-ring.

Ghastly amount of coffee? Don’t know about that as I have nothing to compare it with. But a kilo of Coles Fair Trade espresso roast beans or ground lasts a long time at onle $17 or so.
