Honourable Mention – 7-Eleven

Taipei Convenience Stores

If you’re looking for a cheap coffee to go, 7-Eleven sell probably the cheapest in Taipei. While other convenience stores also sell coffees for the same price, 7-Eleven use the same coffee beans as Starbucks, and they taste very good for the price.

As a bonus, 7-Eleven will often have buy-one-get-second-half-price deals, which you can even buy in bulk and use any time (although it must be from the same store you purchased your original coffee from).

Latte Prices: Small – NT$35 / Medium – NT$45 / Large NT$55 / Extra Large – NT$65
