Recently, te website SavingsSpot put together a handy chart of the cities and states in America with the most, and least, expensive cup of coffee.
Coffee aficionados might not be surprised to learn that Seattle, Washington, takes the crown for the most expensive cup of coffee in America, coming in at an average of $3.46. But this is no gas station coffee on offer — Seattle is well known for its many gourmet coffee shops. Seattle isn’t the only city int he state with a high price tag. Washington state is home to the top five most expensive cities for coffee on the list: Seattle, followed by Olympia, Kennewick, Tacoma, and Bremerton. When it comes to pure coffeeshop access, however, Hawaii has the most coffee shops per capita, with about 41 coffee shops per 100,000 people.
