How much would you pay for a really good cup of coffee? And no, we're not talking your average pumpkin spice latte, people.
One cafe in Rancho Cucamonga, California, hopes that answer is ... a lot. That’s because it will soon be serving up $55 cups to customers who want to experience a flavorful brew made from an extremely rare crop of beans.
Known as Esmeralda Geisha Cañas Verdes Natural, these beans were originally found growing on a single estate in the hills of Panama. One hundred pounds were put up for international auction and sold for a record-breaking $601 per pound (the previous title holder of most expensive coffee went to a crop of beans that sold for $350 a pound.)
