How much does your coffee cost? Not just its price, but its social and environmental impact too?

Power to Change commissioned us to conduct an audit of cafés in three key areas, comparing how they priced a cappuccino.

The original intention is to explore how different businesses price the same product, and how community businesses pay for their social impact. This Index is intended to help consumers and community businesses in three areas – Liverpool, Bristol and Suffolk – reflect on the true cost of their coffee.

Consumers can use this Index to find community businesses and independent cafes in their area which use their profits to help the local community. Community businesses can use this Index to see how other cafes price their products, and reflect on their own pricing strategies.
