It's not pretty
Because it turns out we Brits spend an average of £2,160 yearly on coffee (or £2,600 for the self-employed worker). That’s the equivalent of a monthly salary right there.
There’s a reason behind it though. The study, conducted by MyVoucherCodes, found that more and more of us are working from a coffee shop rather than the office.
56% of Brits polled admitted to working from a coffee shop on a weekly basis, so much so that the term ‘coffice’ has been coined, and 81% of us spend roughly three and a half hours working from a coffee shop every week.
And if you thought this was just the self-employed, think again, because some employees said this practice was encouraged by their place of work.
The average working session spent in a coffee shop is about 93 minutes, in which we spend roughly £10. So it all adds up.
Interestingly, the study highlighted our drinks of choice, and only 8 per cent of us choose a cup of tea (very un-British we think you’ll agree). Cappuccino is the top order of choice (26%), closely followed by the latte (21%).
It’s not all doom and gloom though, as the study found that employees were highly productive in coffee shops, closing business deals worth £14.5 billion to the UK economy. Not bad.
