“Supercoffee:” $100 a cup

This can’t compete with the most expensive cup of tea in the world (Da Hong Pao Tea, which sells for $1,200,000 a kilo), but even at this price, we hope the coffee is served in your choice of cup and with the loveliest of smiles. Elida Geisha Natural 1029 is its name and you will fork out the modest sum of $1,029 for a pound of this Panamanian coffee, thought to be the most expensive on the planet. A test against lesser quality coffees, or even those of frankly dubious quality, was carried out to find out whether this cup of supercoffee is really worth it.
