Since coffee culture associates with something non-Iranian, coffee is usually expensive compared to other edible stuffs. For instance, a cup of cappuccino, not necessarily as good as an Italian one, is more than 1$ while a big portion of “qorme(h) sabzi”, an Iranian dish with rice, a large amount of herbs, beans, meat and five hours of cooking, costs just 2$. So if you are a coffee addict, you’d better be prepared to pay unreasonable prices for coffee or to travel throughout Iran as a chance to quit your addiction and drink Iranian tasty herbal teas.
Alcohol is another thing you can stop drinking in Iran. Serving alcoholic beverages is forbidden in this country. However, you can find modified versions of alcoholic drinks in most of the coffee shops. As far as we know, the most favorable ones among non-Iranians travelling in Iran are non-alcoholic bear, mojito and cocktail. Moreover, you can enjoy drinking traditional drinks which are made of fruits, herbs and seeds.
