Cash Net USA used data on the price of coffee was gathered from looking at prices of coffee from nearly 10,000 coffee shops across 2,500 cities in the United States. What they found is that prices for a cup of straight-up coffee ranged from as high as $3.92 a cup in Seattle, Washington, to as little as $1.18 a cup in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

If you're wondering if that's getting a bit on the high side, let's do a little flashback. Take for instance the year 1965, the year I was born. Coffee averaged just $0.36 a cup. Ok, that was ages ago, but still, has coffee changed that much? If you are curious you can check your birth year price here.
