A single café crème in German-speaking Switzerland has risen almost 3% to CHF4.49 this year.“This is the highest price increase in the last ten years,” CafetierSuisse president Hans-Peter Oettli said on Monday.

Over the course of the last decade, the German-speaking Swiss have been forced to stump up 8.7% or 36 centimes more. In 2013, the average price for a café crème was CHF4.13. The figures are based on a telephone survey by CafetierSuisse of 650 cafeterias and bistros in German-speaking Switzerland.

Café crème once again costs the most in the city of Zurich. In 2023, Zurich residents will pay an average of CHF4.78 for a cup. This puts the price 6.4% above the average in German-speaking Switzerland. This is followed by the cantons of Zug (CHF4.66), St. Gallen (CHF4.46), Aargau (CHF4.40) and Bern (CHF4.35).

The most expensive Café crème also comes from the canton of Zurich. With a maximum price of CHF6.50 for a cup, Zurich also leads the ranking in this category.

Coffee is likely to become significantly more expensive next year. The association expects a price increase for Café crème of 5 to 15%.“Given the current economic situation, further price increases cannot be ruled out,” explained Oettli.

The reason is, among other things, higher personnel and additional costs. At the same time, CafetierSuisse emphasises the major differences within the industry. Pricing is a decision for each individual company. The price calculation depends on the competitive situation, the concept and the location of the company.
