The most expensive coffee in the country is in Washington. Here’s why

Here in the Pacific Northwest, the most expensive coffee in the country is grown.

And that could be bad news for your wallet, given that much of Washington is experiencing chilly, cloudy weather, which makes the prospect of a warm cup of coffee alluring.

Seattle is the state’s most expensive coffee city. According to a Dec. 6 study released by SavingSpot from CashNetUSA, an online lender, the average price of a coffee in the Emerald City is $3.92.

Additionally, the city is the birthplace of Starbucks, the world’s largest coffee shop chain with thousands of locations in 80 countries.

Olympia, Kennewick, Tacoma, and Bremerton are four additional Washington cities with some of the highest cup prices in the country. They comprise the top five cities with the priciest coffee on average, with Spokane ranking seventh.

According to a SavingSpot study released on Dec. 6, the most expensive coffee is found in these five Washington cities.
