The Wall Street Journal released a chart showing the price of the Starbucks Grande Latte in various cities around the world. The most expensive location to get one turned out to be Oslo where the price of the Grande Latte was around KD2.800. I was curious to see how Kuwait faired so I passed by Starbucks and checked the price. A Grande Latte in Kuwait is KD1.250 and when I converted that to US Dollars using the NBK website, it turned out to be $4.38. That is the same price as a Grande Latte in Dublin. [Article]
Update: I just found out the price of the Grande Latte is actually KD1.500 which translates to $5.25 and puts the price higher up the list. The Starbucks I visited in the morning was located at the NBK head office and I guess that Starbucks has cheaper prices hence the KD1.250 I was quoted. Below is the updated chart.
