I can still get a coffee for 1 euro in Spain
04 September 2018 @ 18:16

I moved to Spain at the back end of 2008, just before the credit crunch happened.  Back then, I was paying 1 euro for a really good coffee (cafe con leche) in my local bar in Manilva pueblo.  Fast forward 10 years and I am still paying 1 euro for my coffee at the same bar.  The bar in question is Bar Castillo, on the main street in Manilva village.

I think this is fantastic value for money, particularly compared to coffee prices in the UK.  I would regularly have 2 or 3 coffees per day in Spain because it was so cheap.  Unfortunately, I don't spend so much time in Spain these days, so if I want to have a coffee now, I'm hard pressed to find one for less than £2.50 back in the UK.

I guess the lack of price rises reflects the economic situation Spain has found itself in since the credit crunch in 2008/09 and the lack of inflation in the economy.  It has meant that my local bar has stayed really busy during this period.

Given the recovery Spain has been enjoying in recent years, I don't think anyone would begrudge paying an extra 10 or 20 cents for a coffee?

I spend a lot of time on the road in the UK. My recommendation is to go to McDonalds. Not for a Burger! They do really good coffee, Latte Cappucino & Flat white for £1.79 they use "bean to cup" machines with fresh milk. You can park easily, use the loo and if you want to stop there's free wifi. Buy 6 drinks save the tokens and your 7th is Free.

Thanks Des. I'll give them a try. I've been told that Gregg's do a cheap coffee as well.
