A £15,000 Espresso habit
I understand that there was a snippet in that august tome ‘The Sun’ the other day, which advised that a one a day high street gourmet coffee love affair would over a typical working / commuting life time amount to a fifteen thousand pounds or more spend!
And an intake of some 40 to 50 litres of brown liquor and semi skimmed milk a year…. and believe it or not a habit which generated some 60,000 calories every 12 months – whoops!
Could Gourmet coffee be the crack cocaine of the next decade…with millions of hapless and mournful commuters hooked on their red eye caffeine fix?
Certainly, selling coffee is a highly profitable business and so no doubt the retailers will do all they can to feed and encourage the habit – and perhaps inevitably the government will introduce some nebulous coffee tax or preposterous espresso levy
It’s amazing isn’t it? Perfetto espresso becomes a drug habit and a highly taxed lifestyle statement
