If you’re a caffeine addict, you’ll know that how much you pay for your vital morning coffee when you’re on holiday can vary wildly.

And Intrepid Travel has released their 2019 Adventure Travel Index, revealing the prices of that all important steaming cuppa around the world.

It’s no surprise the birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia, is the cheapest when it comes to a delicious brew. A cup of coffee in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa will only set you back AU 25 cents.

Meanwhile, an espresso in Italy’s Rome will cost you $1.60 at a local coffee shop if you stand at the bar. However if you sit, you can expect the price to double.

Colombia is one of the world’s largest producers of coffee, with its unique geography offering the ideal climate for producing the perfect coffee beans – and a cuppa from its capital city will only set you back $1.70.

In Hoi An, Vietnam, a cup of coffee will cost you $1.80, while in Istanbul, Turkey, a quick pick-me-up comes in at just 15 cents more.

Australia’s second-largest city has perfected the art of making and enjoying coffee, however, a cuppa in Melbourne is quite pricey, with a flat white costing you $3.80.
