For the coffee in my country, I think it costs around US$5 for a cold grande. I don't drink the other sizes too much and therefore I don't really remember! For me, I don't really go to Starbucks that often because I think that's a bit expensive for me.

That's right, 5.00$ for a small cup of coffee, that is really expensive for a casual rest. anyway, with 5 or over, one can treat herself a good mean, good Chinese meal. that's more enjoyable, at least i think so. and i doubt it if a very small cup of coffee is sold at 5.00$, will americans still visit STARBUCK ?

Hi tudors! I am unsure how much coffee from Starbuck may cost. But, I will take a wild guess.. I will say about $3.50 for a cup.. That is my speculation of what it may cost. It should be the sold for near the same price in other countries as well. No matter if the country is rich.. But for the poor people it would be nice to sell it for $2.10 or it should come off of their EBT card. This includes, as the prices with no tax.. How sweet is that?

To tell the truth, i haven't found it any special, no better than other coffee served in other coffee bar in china. Here in my city, a big capital city of China, per cup is sold 25.00 yuan or more, that's around 3.25$ per cup , some are 30 or more, that is 4.5$ or more. see? i don't think they should be sold at the same price. let me explain like this--- let's say an ordinary person earns 1500yuan to 2500yuan, to pay a cup of coffee for 25.00, that is one per cent of his monthly income simply for a cup of coffee ! let's suppose per ordinary American earns 1200$, so 3.00$ is 1 :400, that is 0.0025 ! The proportion is quite reasonalbe. Therefore, only few high-income people can afford that; while in your country, it's almost for everybody. Thanks.
