Basic or Bougie: Here Are The Cheapest And Most Expensive Coffee Options in Grand Rapids
I truly believe the way you enjoy your coffee says a lot about you. Not that there is a wrong way to get your caffeine fix. Some of us take it as seriously as picking out a new car, while others just need to keep the engine running.
So if you're looking to go all out, or keep your budget tight, here are some of your best options.
Regular Coffee (Hot or Iced)
Not into something fancy? Maybe you just need a something simple and easy, or you want a bean you can taste without the frill.
The most expensive cup of just regular coffee belongs to...Madcap Coffee
While they're known for their quality to the point that one time Justin Beiber flew into Grand Rapids just to get a cup, that quality costs a little extra. They have multiple beans in stock at any given time, making it a sliding scale of luxury based on what kind of bean you're looking to enjoy.
Currently, their most expensive cup is a 24 ounce pour over called Santa Teresa Gesha that is running $17.
Honorable mention: Ferris Coffee has a "market price" pour over coffee that varies, so it's hard to say they always have the most expensive cup. But if you want to really "ball out", visit one of their shops.
The least expensive cup goes to... Tim Hortons
Yes, I'm skipping all of the fast food and gas station brands, because a lot of those are questionable as to if they're even brewed.
But, if you're looking for a quick cup to go, you can get a black hot coffee for only $1.59
What about Cold Brew?
Maybe you need something with a little more charge, or you like a more sophisticated flavor profile in your iced coffee.
The most expensive cold brew is... Rowster Coffee
While you can find some pretty fancy and delicious cups of coffee up and down Wealthy Street, this is where you'll feel it the most in your pockets.
Their Nitro Cold Brew runs $5.25 a cup, which is a dollar over average for Grand Rapids.
The least expensive cold brew is... Biggby
Yes, they are practically everywhere in town, and have some of the sweetest drinks you can imagine.
But you can get any size cold brew at Biggby Coffee for only $1.99, which is a steal. If you just want something quick on the go, you can't beat this deal.
