The coffee paid for more than 11 euros in Piazza San Marco in Venice has been exceeded in a big way

The coffee paid for more than 11 euros in Piazza San Marco in Venice, which caused so much scandal some time ago, now has a rival. If in the Venetian case it was the view, the atmosphere and the fact that it is a particularly touristy place that raised the price of an espresso from the classic euro, what will make the most expensive coffee in the world so expensive?


# 67 euros for a coffee


In a Californian bar, precisely at Klatch Coffee in San Francisco, a cup of coffee was sold for the modest price of 75 dollars which, changed, corresponds to 67 euros. The coffee in question is a precious extract with floral aromas of jasmine and red fruit and is called Elida Natural Geisha 803. A coffee that must be particularly good if drinking a cup costs as much as a plane trip to some European city with baggage in the hold. if not more.

The Elida Natural Geisha 803 has indeed entered the Guinness World Record as the most expensive coffee, but this is not the only award it has won. The blend won first place in the Best of Panama coffee competition and was valued at auction for $ 803 per pound, or half a kilo. In any case, Elida Natural Geisha 803 is not so “natural”: although the blend is so expensive it is not organically grown. Plus one wonders, is this coffee really worth the price? Only 100 pounds were purchased at the auction in China, Japan, Tawain and the USA. And it seems that the San Francisco bar is the only American to have bought it, making it unique, but being able to make only 80 cups of coffee with 10 pounds.

But don’t go too far to find increasingly expensive coffees. Without getting to the excess of the Elida Natura Geisha 803, even in Italy the espresso is abandoning its price of 1 euro. As coffee continues its race towards a UNESCO World Heritage nomination, it begins to cost more and more. Ferrara wins the highest price, for now, with its euro and 18 cents on average, but it seems that the climb is just the beginning. Will a coffee as expensive as the Elida Natural Geisha 803 also arrive in Italy? But will it be the fact of being a fine blend or the rise in price to make it more expensive?
