# A cup of coffee, what does that cost?

With every type of coffee machine, you use a different type of coffee. This way you fill a fully automatic espresso machine with coffee beans and put your ground coffee in your filter machine. Do you have a Nespresso or Dolce Gusto machine? Then you need special coffee cups. There is a different price tag for every type of coffee. To give you more insight into this, we have put the prices per cup of coffee for you in a table. Do you want more information, for example about the number of cups you get from 1 package? Then scroll down further.

## Price per cup

This table shows the type of coffee you use per coffee machine and how much it costs to brew 1 cup of coffee. To calculate the price per cup of coffee, we assumed the A-brand for each type of coffee. This means: beans and filter coffee from Douwe Egberts, Senseo pads, and capsules from Nespresso and Dolce Gusto Nescafe.
