We Say/You Say: How much would you pay for a flat white?

Abby Irwin Reporter from The Hutt News

Kia ora neighbours,

Industry experts say we should be preparing to pay more for our barista coffees in order keep local cafes alive, Stuff reports.

While the average price of a regular coffee is between $4.50 and $5, the cost of running a cafe has increased exponentially due to rising rents, wages, and milk prices. Former cafe owner Richard Corney says taking these into account, a fair price for a coffee is closer to $6.50 to $7:

"In the New Year, people have to be prepared to pay up to $7.20 for a large flat white, and $20 for a plate of brunch food. If you’re not, I completely understand, but we will see the demise of the hospitality sector."

How much are you willing to pay for your morning coffee? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the conversations section of The Hutt News.

Pet of the Day: Meet Murphy

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Tracy Watkins is the proud owner of Murphy.

"She loves chasing rabbits but while she’s never actually caught one it's good exercise for working off her other favourite thing, treats.
She also loves swimming in the creek on our lifestyle block and likes most things about country life (except cows which can be a bit intimidating). She also loves a lie in and is always the last one out of bed."
Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on yourpet@dompost.co.nz with a recent photo. Please remember to say which suburb you live in.
