Coffee aficionados are willing to shell out big bucks for the perfect cup of coffee. But Californians may be taking it to the next level. 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 at the heart of this exclusive brew is known as Elida Geisha Natural, which garnered a record $803 per pound at auction and cost nearly $1,200 a pound after roasting, according to CNN affiliate KGO in San Francisco. Klatch purchased 10 pounds of the beans, which is just 10% of the 100 pounds that was auctioned off worldwide at the Best of Panama green coffee auction hosted by the Specialty Coffee Association of Panama in 2018. If $75 is too pricey, even for this limited supply, other award-winning bags are priced as low as $14.95 for 12 ounces.
