Where’s the cheapest coffee in Ireland?

With everyone looking at costs at the moment, many visitors to ValueIreland.com are keen to find out where the cheapest cup of coffee can be found.

The obvious answer is “at home”, given that a jar of coffee will set you back €4 or €5 and you’ll get multiple cups from it.

And that makes it more ridiculous that we’re immune to the fact that we’re all used to seeing coffee for €3 or €4, back in the good old days.

In the past few weeks I’m getting reports of some coffee shops trying to attract business by cutting the cost of their coffee.

I myself saw one shop in Wexford selling coffee for €1, and a reader sent us details of a shop in Dublin 2 selling their coffee for 99c.

In the last week, the great value website GoodBuy.ie told us of an offer in a shop in Athlone selling tea and coffee for 89c.

Can you beat that? Where have you seen the cheapest tea or coffee in the country?

    Me again – a friend told me yesterday that there’s a newsagent beside the Hairy Lemon pub in Dublin 2 that does takeaway tea, coffee and hot chocolate for 99c.
