An Italian coffee shop owner is in hot water after being fined $1,050 for failing to display the cost of a $2.12 espresso.
The owner of the Ditta Artigianale cafe in Florence has been punished by police after a customer reported him at the end of April for not advertising his prices as legally required.
Inspector Leonardo Magnolfi, of Florence local police, told CNN Thursday that a male customer reported the cafe for not displaying the price of the coffee behind the counter － as law dictates.
Police followed up the complaint and fined the shop $1,050 euros after verifying that the price was indeed absent.
