If you didn’t think Starbucks was overpriced as is, the Seattle coffee conglomerate has announced its most expensive coffee ever, at $7-a-cup.
The Costa Rica Finca Palmilera coffee is made from a very rare coffee variety, known as Geisha, and is only available in 48 stores in the United States.
A “tall” cup of the coffee, Starbucks’ smallest size, without any added milk, costs $6.
A “grande,” Starbucks’ next largest size, costs $7, making it the franchise’s most expensive coffee ever.
An eight ounce bag of the whole bean coffee costs customers $40.
The Costa Rica Finca Palmilera supersedes the Jamaican Blue Mountain blend as the coffee giant’s most expensive blend.
The coffee is part of Starbucks’ limited edition “Reserve” line, and has proven to be a hit with coffee snobs and purists alike.
One online store reportedly sold out of the variety in less than 24 hours.
Half of the stores in which the coffee is being sold are based in US city of Seattle, where Starbucks was founded.
Seattle’s residents consume more coffee per capita than residents of any other city in America.
The Costa Rica Finca Palmilera is truly an Elite blend of coffee.
