The price of coffee, which is indispensable for deep conversations, has increased sharply. Turkish coffee, whose kilogram was 30 TL at the beginning of the year, rose to 90 TL in August. A kilo of Turkish coffee is being sold for 140 liras these days. Despite the rise in prices, there is still a queue in front of the famous coffee shops in Eminönü district of İstanbul.
After the hike in Turkish coffee, the smallest 72 grams package is sold for 10 TL, 107 grams for 15 TL, 250 grams for 35 TL and half a kilo for 70 TL. The kilogram prices of foreign coffees vary between 200 TL and 240 TL.
The reason for the increase is shown as the worldwide supply shortage and increasing Exchange Rates due to the epidemic. Despite the increase, there is still a queue in front of the famous coffee shops in Eminönü.
In the meantime, there are those who buy less coffee and there are those who stop buying coffee.
Sellers, on the other hand, stated that the prices had increased inexorably for 2 weeks and attributed the surge to the exchange rate.
