Norwegians Pay Big for Starbucks Coffee

Posted: Mar. 6th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

A trip to Oslo, Norway can be a little jarring when it comes to prices. Americans used to local prices are almost always shocked to pick up a nearly $10.00 cup of Starbucks Coffee, though mercifully that's tax inclusive. A trip to Oslo – especially in wintertime – is something to cherish, but such a fond memory comes with a hefty price.

THINK Starbucks is a rip off? Just wait until you see how much Oslo has to pay for the same cup of coffee.


The Wall Street Journal compared the cost of a Starbucks grande latte converted to US dollars using the exchange rates on February 20 and including taxes.


It found it would take $9.83 to buy a latte in Oslo Norway, compared to $4.82 in Sydney, $4.30 in New York and $2.80 in New Delhi.


In Zurich that cup of coffee would cost $7.12, in Brussels $5.65, in Istanbul it would cost $3.92 and in Mexico it would cost $3.22.
