Here's why your morning coffee costs more and why the price could keep going up
If your morning cup of coffee has tasted a little bitter lately, it may not be the beans but the price tag.The price of a flat white – and any cafe-made coffee – has been forced up not just by the cost of international freight and wages, but incidentals such as the wholesale price of caramel syrup.
The footballer tweeted: 'Back to reality and I love it! Shift done at Boxx2boxx coffee shop. Thanks to everyone that came to say hello! Your support is really appreciated.'
The star can be seen in photos holding a dustpan and brush behind the counter after serving customers coffee and toasties.
Scott can also be seen smiling and crouching beside a young fan, letting her try on her medal for a photo.
But this was no publicity stunt by the Lioness as it appeared she knew all the regulars by name with fans tweeting about the footballer's down to earth nature.
