This café wanted to charge me $4.50 for a double shot espresso (short black), I questioned this and their reply was “We charge 50 cents more for the extra shot” or words similar to this.
Does this mean just a single shot of espresso would be $4.00??
They did ask me if I wanted water with the espresso or just straight so there was no mistake in what I was wanting.
I purchase double shot espressos regularly Auckland Wide including my regular cafes in West Auckland and the most I have ever had to pay would be $4.00 at a maximum. My regular coffee shops in Swanson, Lincoln Road, Mt Eden and Parnell charge me $3.50 or less.
I drove straight down to a Café on Parrs Cross Road that I have never been to before and they charged me $3.50 which is around the price I was expecting.
I have been to this café in question once before and the girl charged me the $4.50 but I thought she made a mistake but I paid it anyway.
But this time I just walked away.
Even if I ordered a triple shot at my regular cafés it would not equate to $4.50.
I guess it is there right to charge what they like but I will not pay it on principle.
Why are your double shot short blacks the most expensive I have ever come across Auckland wide for a little DVD/Café in West Auckland?
