The discussion about ‘coffee shop vs desk space’ is one we continuously have with freelancers all the time, especially in Cyprus. So we decided to actually do the calculations.
We took the data collected and published by the Cyprus Tourism Organisation, extracted the average price of a Frappé per city, and multiplied it by 2 for each work day in a 4-week month.
The results of our calculations are as follows:
Kinda silly, since you can actually rent a desk in Cyprus from €120 p/month, and the coffee is both free and ever-flowing.
* Only 2?! Yea, we didn’t want to sky-rocket the cost per day.
** You know… friends, crying babies, pilotta parties, people bumping your table, boiling hot coffee being carried around your work and electronic devices.
