        These figures are for home users, not charbucks who get there beans for $1/kg

        Green coffee ~$10 per kg = 1000g / 10g per shot = 100 shots per kg

        So each 10g dose of coffee = 10c

        Full Cream Milk ~$4 per 3 lt = 3000ml / 210ml per latte = 14 cups per bottle

        So each 210ml of milk = 28c

        Total = 38 cents per latte (single shot)

        *This does not include Power consumed by roasters, grinders or coffee machines. (or the enormous overheads of a cafe, if thats what your after)

          Hi Wsully,

          Your cost of coffee beans doesnt take in to account that green coffee loses weight during roasting. Normally around 15%. It might be more accurate to say that 850 grams of roasted coffee costs $10, overheads of power/gas, roasting equipment not taken in to consideration.

            LOL. Do you really use 10gm of green coffee to make a shot? ;D

              Yep, it wasnt to the cent, but the $10/kg is below average too for me, it was just an example

                So true... Besides where is teh labour component to roast and then to deliver...

                It is interesting how often many forget the actual labour component.. And the a $35 / hr rate for example is only part of it... Many often forget all the other additional costs i.e. Super / leave etc.

                A rule of thumb is look at the persons hrly rate and then double it and then round up :-)


                Besides if some one was serious about an assignment... Chamber of Commerce and many other places have some interesting stats.


                Besides...

                The cost of instant is available any where and again; Cost of Product or Cost per cup... too many variables.


                Then again we live in the detail; while others want a global picture - allows the disadvantage persons and less that ideal practices to be hidden from public view

                  This doesnt take into account the 15 - 20% reduction in weight after roasting .

                  Assuming you get 400grams of roasted from 500g of greens (cost at least $6 toCoffeeSnobs, including delivery), that works out at twenty 20g shots at 30c per shot. So each cup would cost 15c if you split a standard double shot.

                  Im afraid your milk calculations are not correct either. It only takes about 150 mls to produce enough textured milk for a single 210ml latte glass/cup, assuming you half fill a 600ml milk jug to steam enough for two cups.

                            15c MILK 15c COFFEE IN A STANDARD LATTE

                            MUST REMEMBER TO INCLUDE COST OF MACHINE + GRINDER + ROASTER AS WELL. COST OF THE ABOVE CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM UNDER 1500 IN A POOR MANS SETUP TO ABOUT 3K FOR A HIGH END DOMESTIC MACHINE ALONE.

                              lets also assume that youre using speciality coffee which can cost considerably more to purchase and that you run as I do with 20g average per coffee - then factor in a significant percentage of wastage and the labour costs associated with running the coffee machine, serving the customer, and washing the glass and your costs go up considerably

                              at my joint we calculate that the cost of the coffee used is 56c plus 35c for biodynamic unhomoginised milk (not including wastage) = 91c (more like $1 including wastage) to produce an uncompromising product

                              many cafes also charge extra for soy milk but spare a thought for those whos dairy milk costs at least as much as a quality soy milk to use but who charge no extra for it...
