I've just found out that Costa do a babyccino. It's only 55p! It can be either hot milk or hot choc with sprinkles on top and either a marshmallow or mini flake at the side. Great price to treat the kids.

I have my own Espresso machine, and even taking into account the cost of the machine, my coffee made at home costs 20p per cup, and tastes far better than Costa or Starbucks costing >£2. You get to choose coffee that suits you, not just the 'house' blend that has a bitter aftertaste, or just no body/taste at all. And for free, you get to learn how to become a Barista, and that is a very important job. Too many coffee shops don't know how to make consistently good coffee.The UK are only just beginning the coffee revolution, it's far more prevalent and cheaper in Europe. However with the 2 or 3 major coffee chains cornering the market, it truly is Rip-off Britain.On Holiday in Portugal, same coffee shop, same machine, same coffee, three separate 'barista's'. One of them made coffee that was weak and watery, one was bitter, the last one (who had actually been on courses and enjoyed what he did) was delightful.... oh... and the price : 90 cents (80p) for a decent small cappuccino. No Coffee chains, nearly all independents with a few shops at most (or only 1!)


I can cook better than some of the restaurants I eat in, doesn't mean I don't need or want to eat out. You pay for so much more than the raw cost of materials.
Are you suggesting that you go home everytime you want a coffee? Or, why didn't you take your coffee machine to Portugal and save paying 4 times the price for coffee.?

Being a realist, yes sometimes we are overpaying for things, but if you can't afford it, don't buy it

Yours costs 20p, but you're not paying for someone to make it for you, someone else to clear the cup from your table and another person to wash it up. Plus you're not paying rent/utilities/insurance specifically for a building to house your coffee machine, nor advertising to get people to come to your house for a coffee.

Also can have it with soya for those dairy intolerant kiddies out there, my daughter always pines for one when passing

Is it? Ha thought I had a bargain : )

My kids love the hot chocolate babyccino. I think Starbucks is only hot milk, but Costa with hot chocolate with marshmallow is their fave. Have some heat!

Been getting this for my son for 6 years! Starbucks isn't chocolate so not as good as Costa.

He is getting a bit older now so I buy him two because I'm tight and don't want to shell out for a hot chocolate!

You can order a free chocy chino from Starbucks too - it isn't just plain milk x x

The fact that this is "only 55p" shows everything that is wrong with society.

Just praying interest rates start to go up next month and people start to realise the true value of stuff.

I agree you go shopping and see things on offer, and its a 'good deal' like cheaper then it has been for months/weeks, but then you think about it the price is about right for that product,
1£ 1£ 1£ 2£, people need to get out of the habit of thinking its a deal and think is that product actually should cost 60-70-80p, considering there all smaller to :P

Gee, it's a free market.

Costa and Starbucks..... probably the worst coffee shops in the world.

So basically what you're saying, that i should risk setting up my own coffee shop to go against these competitors whilst they run rings around everyone with branding, it's a tough call

nope.. I'm just saying that coffee shops are too expensive and if you're a coffee addict then invest in your own equipment and enjoy at home anytime for far less money.

I'm currently looking for a job, so this idea of extorting people for a sugary drink is fantastic, i wonder why i've never thought about it before

You are correct. But I'm not a person easily wooed into parting silly money for coffee in 'nice' surroundings when 90% of what you pay for is NOT Coffee! Plus I'm not workshy and quite enjoy the whole ritual including washing up ... old school perhaps. Each to their own.

You are so correct. If only Credit hadn't been invented, then this would be the way of the world!

They have been this price for years

30pat Waitrose

Bet you made this discovery whilst using the Three Wuntu free drink offer the other day

For reference, I wasn't talking about the cost of coffee - which I appreciate varies considerably based on beans, machine, barista etc.

I'm talking about 55p for a bit of frothy milk.

Do you never go out, never been to a pub, restaurant, world had changed people want to enjoy themselves meet up with friends, relax. If you don’t like it just move on bet you at like one of our relations when his wife goes shopping he takes a flask and sits in the car. Sad world if you can’t allow others to do what they like with their own or borrowed money

Think this has been repeated multiple times in the past.

Do these mean anything to you when running a business: rent, gound rates, insurance, electric, water rates, cleaning, heating, refuse rates, wages, NIC, uniforms, cleaning equipment & sundries, furniture, POS systems, stock costs even before refurbishment costs to setup shop.

If it's too expensive, make your own & never spend a penny going out but I know it will be very hard at times when you happen to have not the time to make one yourself.

Time is money. I guess you have a lot of time to yourself. Now go & get the milk in your backyard & make a nice cuppa coffee.

Tesco has most of those costs - ask them how much a pint of milk costs.

whats the point

they also do puppycino which is a tiny paper cup filled with spray cream for your doggy pals

It's always been this price.. where's the deal?

Are dogs allowed in Costa?

55p for a little peace and quiet is money well spent

Just wish they would stop scrimping and hire someone to clean up. Too often these coffee shops are filthy dirty places where you have to clear away the last persons rubbish to be able to get a seat.

With marshmallows or a flake, and chocolate flavoured if you want. It's a lovely little treat for the kids, most places charge £2 for 'kids' hot chocolate which is basically this.

We have a waitrose with cafe in town, so I tend to take kiddo there, get a few of the little person biscuits to dunk, a babyccino and a full hand made latte for me, costs 90p in total with my waitrose card!

Can i get it online ?

I'm happy to pay £2 for a cup of coffee once in a while, sit in the coffee shop..chat etc rather than sit at home a pay 20p for it.

Good for the oldies too. I have been getting my grandma a cortado in an espresso cup when we go. She likes hot chocolate but can never manage even a small one

Been getting these for years for my daughter!

Must have increased in price. Was 50p last time I bought my kids one of these.
