    How do caffeine costs compare?

    With stores in 70 countries, Starbucks has become synonymous with coffee throughout the world, and we collect the price of a single espresso from just about every country where a Starbucks exists! 

    As part of AIRINC’s data collection process, we travel to over three hundred cities annually to gather prices for a wide array of goods and services – everything from milk and eggs to cars and car repairs.
