3 in 5 coffee drinkers spend over £10 in cafés every week

The UK is a nation of coffee lovers with over half (51%) of people admitting to enjoying a cup every single day.

This comes as new research from eBay reveals that over three-fifths of coffee drinkers (63%) estimate they spend up to £10 per week on buying coffee out of the house, equating to a huge £520 a year.

In a bid to save the nation hundreds of pounds a year, eBay is calling on shoppers to save money on their flat whites by opting for a refurbished coffee machine to make a great-tasting coffee at home – especially, as cafe prices continue to soar. 

If shoppers decided to snap up this top of the range Nespresso Vertuo Pop Coffee Pod Machine for just £39.99, coffee lovers could save up to a huge £480 a year, even after buying coffee pods and milk, claims eBay

The UK is a nation of latte lovers as nearly half (41%) reveal the steamed milk beverage is their coffee of choice, followed by cappuccinos (37%) and americanos (27%). Mochas are particularly popular with the younger generation and fans can get their hands on a refurbished Hotel Chocolat velvetiser for just £44.99.

When asked why they spend money on buying coffee out rather than making their own at home nearly half (47%) revealed that they like to treat themselves to a coffee and 3/10 (27%) want a coffee when they are out of the house for the day.

Under half (48%) of coffee drinkers own a coffee machine at home, with 24% believing coffee machines to be too expensive. However, by choosing Refurbished on eBay shoppers can save over 50% on a range of refurbished coffee machines, with almost a quarter (23%) of those surveyed already considering saving money by purchasing a refurbished coffee machine, claims eBay.

eBay’s refurbished range includes brands like Nespresso, Krups, De’Longhi and Sage, so the nation can enjoy that barista style coffee treat everyday. 

All refurbished products are fully functional and have been inspected, cleaned and refurbished by either the manufacturer itself, or manufacturer-approved sellers. All items also come with a Money Back Guarantee, as well as free delivery across the UK.

Says Mark Monte-Colombo, Head of Refurbished & Home Improvement at eBay UK:

 “As a nation of coffee lovers, we spend hundreds each year on grabbing a coffee when we’re out and about – and this spending adds up without us realising.

“We want to show shoppers that choosing refurbished on eBay is one way they can make some serious savings, getting the cafe experience at home without compromising on taste and quality. As well as providing better value, shopping refurbished also helps extend the life cycle of items and keeps them out of landfill.”
