According to the British Coffee Association we now drink approximately 95 million cups of coffee a day in the UK.
Home coffee machines are becoming increasingly popular for making espresso-based beverages, but are they really worth the investment?
If you’re a fan of instant coffee then perhaps not. But if you enjoy treating yourself to a daily drink from a coffee shop, you might want to see these numbers…
We’ve done the maths, and were pleasantly surprised to see how affordable investing in a Nespresso machine could be by comparison.
Nespresso Pixie original machine: £139.99
Coffee pod cost: 35p
Annual cost of a coffee a day: £267.74
Starbucks espresso: £1.90
Annual cost of a coffee a day: £693.50
Over the course of a year, that’s a saving of £425.76, which would pay for the machine itself and still leave plenty of extra money.
