Price of Coffee (Dubai)

I find myself being forced to have a cup of coffee a day in Dubai (meetings,caffeine kick,unwind)and I am getting sick and tired of the rising costs of coffee here. The avg price of a cup coffee in the U.S is 3 dollars, roughly 11 dh.In the UK 2 GBP , roughly 12 dh.

Watching coffee shops here charge Protected content for a cup of coffee its ridiculous, I know we have a lower population, but as far as I'm concerned:

1-No v.a.t

2-We pay lower rent

3-The price of coffee has dropped significantly

4-There aren't even minimum wage laws that drive up personnel costs

I see it as day light robbery and coffee shops here are laughing all the way to the bank.

Please educate me if you know otherwise.
