Stockholm's cheapest latte

I spend my mornings in front of the radio these days. Just minutes ago, a journalist told that a caffe latte costs only 10 SEK (1 EUR) in the Swedish parliament café. In a normal café, including at the universities a similar beverage would cost three times more. Why? Because the parliament staff have ordered the café not to charge more for the latte... originally they wanted cheap  lunches, but that is unfortunately forbidden by law.

I don't know if the café is open for citizens in Stockholm... if anyone can go there for a cheap caffe latte, I guess it isn't corruption...


In Sweden everyone pays one Euro  for their coffe. The homeless get 1,5 dl brewed coffee for their euro, the members of paliament get 3 dl latte.

If a latte costs 10 SEK, what is the price for normal cup of coffee?

I don't know. I doubt it is popular when the Latte is so cheap.
