Get your own Espresso Machine.
Depending on where you buy your coffee beans, a 6oz cappucino only cost RM 1.60 to RM 2.10. Of the total cost, RM 1.00 is actually the cost of fresh milk.
So, imagine Starbucks charge me RM 8.00, every cup of coffee I make at home instead of buying from Starbucks, I save RM 6.00 at least.
Therefore, how much would a decent home espresso machine cost? The machine in Starbucks cost at least RM 20,000.00 onwards. A decent home espresso machine only cost you RM 2,000.00.
And I can assure you that with the proper guidance and practice, you can make a cup of coffee that is consistently better than any from the major coffee chains.
How do I know? Heheheh.
