Would You Pay £50 for a Cup of Coffee?

In the News

Caffeine lovers with deep pockets are being invited to buy the UK's most expensive coffee at £50 for a cup of filter brew at a Mayfair cafe called Queens of Mayfair

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-8742929/Mayfair-cafe-sells-UKs-expensive-coffee-50-cup.html

I can only imagine perhaps gifting it as an experience for a coffee lover, but otherwise, I’m happy with my teas I make at home at a fraction of the price

If there are only 15 servings then there are more than enough people in and around Mayfair that would be willing to pay that much. If you want to save £35 you could always head to the King's Cross area for a “perfect” cup of coffee at Le Café Alain Ducasse - https://www.standard.co.uk/go/london/restaurants/alain-ducasse-cafe-perfect-coffee-15-pounds-kings-cross-a4083026.html

From what I’ve read, it’s an ‘invitation only’ kind of offer, so definitely supplying for the demand of the area. So us mere mortals will have to do with standard coffee lol. Thanks for the recommendation

Hi hspexy no way would I pay that much for coffee. Money is tight has it is. That £50 is a good way to buy my shopping or other bills. These people must have money to burn. Just stick to my normal coffee. I more of a tea drinker but I do like the odd coffee now again. Have a lovely weekend. 🦉🦉

Hi nicolajaynehend I‘m also more of a tea drinker too, and tbh I’ve been to places abroad where the price of tea can be even more expensive...thankfully you get to sample them for free without needing to buy 😜 Have a lovely weekend also

I would not pay £50 for coffee! I don't even buy coffee at a coffee shop as I think that that's expensive. Making it home is more affordable and convenient for me. The article is interesting though. Thank you for posting it! 🙂

You’re welcome 😊 I think I prefer home brew myself. Certainly beats waiting in line for a drink

I did pay almost £7.50 for a cup once, when I was abroad and getting fancy blue mountain coffee. It was smooth and I did want to try it, but I wouldn't do it again.

Lol even £7.50 is too steep for me. I don’t think I could even part with a fiver for a cup

Last coffee I had out was at Wetherspoons, it was 99p and I had 2 free refills so 33p a cup. Very nice too. I think the most I have ever paid for a cup of coffee was a Mocha at Costa for £3.40 and it was lovely. To me £3.40 is excessive for a coffee but an occasional treat.

yes I think £3.40 is a bit too much also, although most of these places will charge about £2 for a cup of tea, and I definitely think that’s a con - £2 for a bit of hot water and a bag? Lol I think they are certainly making high markups for hot beverages.

19p is a very good deal. I guess if it does the job and tastes decent enough, it’s worth it

hspexy and you get 500g of coffee too, I've been drinking it for years, my friend gave me a cup and I was pleasantly surprised when she told me it was smart price coffee. Cheap & cheerful and tastes good too

I'm not a coffee expert but know it comes in waves. I forget which wave they're on now but you wouldn't believe the amount of thought that goes into it. Think of it as a fine champagne or whisky. I wouldn't pay 50 quid for a single drink of anything personally but I suppose if I was earning £500k a year, I'd consider it. This sort of thing is all relative. I have had a meal before in a Michelin starred restaurant (over 200 quid bill for two of us) and hate to say it but the extra cost was evident in the food. I couldn't even tell you what some of it was but that was one hell of a dining experience. That to me means - if somebody really, really loves coffee and I mean loves coffee for what it is (not just a fancy latte full of sugar), what's 50 quid for an experience?

There are places in Asia that sell ice cream with gold flakes. At least they don’t cost £50 - probably a fiver or tenner, but never £50
