Would you ever pay $75 for a single cup of coffee? I think for most of us, the answer is no. I mean, I can get a 14oz container of coffee beans at Trader Joe's for about 5 bucks and make a pot at home. But for a real coffee connoisseur, maybe $75 is worth considering, if it means you get to drink a cup that's hard to come by.
A single cup of coffee just sold for $75 at Klatch Coffee's new San Francisco location, which hosted a tasting over the weekend. The single-source organic coffee bean is known as Elida Geisha Natural, which garnered a record $803 per pound at auction and cost nearly $1,200 a pound after roasting.
Klatch purchased 10 pounds of the beans, which is just 10% of the 100 pounds that was auctioned off worldwide. Don't worry. Klatch is also selling the beans online for $75 for 18 grams of coffee.
Are you buying it? (probably not! But I'm interested in trying it to see if it's really *that* good)
