With the coming of the good weather, bars, restaurants and coffee shops are opening their terraces, which are almost always full. However, many people choose to take their coffee away to go out to a nice park, drink their caffeine dose in the open air and enjoy the sun. While the weather is good enough, a coffee or a hot chocolate is a great choice for a pleasant chatting. Divany.hu compared the prices of several coffee shops, which offer takeaway, and have really good coffee. It’s important to know that these are initial prices, asking for additional flavors or whipped cream topping significantly increases the total price. It’s good news that every type of coffee are available in decaffeinated version, and have the same price in case of takeaway.

Popular coffee types
