Just in case you were wondering what the price of coffee is in Beijing, China. Here you go! Prices are in Chinese Yuan (RMB). For conversion into US Dollars, divide the amount by 6.1. For example a small vanilla latte is 30 RMB / 6.1 = 4.92 USD. It’s not cheap. We usually reserve one day a week for personal indulgence while surfing the internet and catching up on emails.

Government funding for small business loans have recently created a plethora of coffee houses in China. Each business features a rustic, industrial design decor with a potpourri of boutique furnishings like chandeliers and British telephone booths and books — all of which makes no rationale sense except the entire experience is niche.
