A coffee with a price tag of $75! Isn’t it really surprising? A cup at this huge cost!
Well, for true coffee lovers, there may not be a cup finer than the Elida Natural Geisha 803, a premium latte sourced from Panama. The liquid hug for your brain is available exclusively at one location in America. And that is none other than the Klatch Coffee Roasters in Southern California.
Brewed and Served by Klatch, the Elida Natural Geisha 803 is a special blend that recently won the Best of Panama coffee competition. “It’s the Oscars for coffee! Just like wine, on a scale of up to 100 this coffee got the highest rating ever,” Klatch co-owner Bo Thiara told in his official statements. “This coffee is not over roasted like what you get at other places. It’s roasted how coffee used to be roasted back in the day. … The objective [in serving the 803] is to just introduce people to this great coffee.”
Klatch Coffee Roasters has procured only 10 pounds of the coffee beans, which translates to 80 cups, of this exclusive Elida Natural Geisha 803. The fine coffee’s wholesale cost is at a record high of $803 a pound. Only 100 pounds of the beans were ever crafted, out of which 90 pounds taken up by international buyers, and 10 pounds by Klatch Coffee.
With such limited amount of fine coffee on hand, Klatch Coffee is extra careful. At $1,200 a pound after roasting, each hot cup costs $75. Naturally, the coffee is organic, single source and fair trade-certified like all of Klatch’s other concoctions.
The coffee company, Klatch, says “Geisha is a rare variety of Arabica coffee that came to Panama from a research lab in Costa Rica but has its origins in Ethiopia. It is known for its floral, tea like and stone fruit flavors with Jasmine, Bergamot, Sugar Cane and Stone Fruit (peach or apricot) being common flavor notes. Natural describes the processing where the cherry is dried fruit on for many weeks, imparting mixed fruit notes like strawberry, raspberry, or blueberry.”
The rare and expensive coffee will be available at Klatch locations in Redondo Beach, San Dimas, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, and LAX.
