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 Upper Hutt Leader.

The Government is moving to make it much harder to buy cigarettes. People born after 2009 could become New Zealand’s first-ever smokefree generation, in a policy move that is expected to bring $5 billion in health savings.
On Thursday, Associate Health Minister Ayesha Verrall announced a radical and world-leading plan to ban tobacco sales to a generation, as well as lower the nicotine level in all tobacco products and drastically reduce number of places that can sell them, through the new Smokefree 2025 action plan.

"I've attached some pics of our gorgeous puss Rusty aka Moomoo , Gingakat, Annoying Orange, Garfield, Garfy, Rustburger...Rusty is about 12 and a half years old and definitely rules our household...She has never spent a night outdoors and can be found during the day snoozing in the most unexpected spots. She is totally ginger which apparently is unusual for a girl? We adore her 🧡😻."
