How much would you pay for a cup of coffee? How about $7?

That's what'll cost for you to get a Grande-sized cup of Starbucks' new Costa Rica Finca Palmilera.

"Ah, um, barista, make sure you make mine with NO room for cream. Thank you very much."

Ok, all kidding aside, anyone try this? Is it good shit? Shit worthy of two In N Out Double Doubles?

    1. The only way I'd pay $7 for a cup of coffee is if the cup was the size of a milking pail, and you got to keep the cup, to boot.

      1. No, haven't tried it. But I did enjoy a pricey morning brew courteousy of my visiting sister in law. These things are really good!!

        1. While I haven't had the coffee you mention, I have paid a fair bit for the odd cup of coffee; I believe the most ever was about $10. It was some sort of relatively rare bean brewed on a clover. It was a great cup of coffee, but not a price I can justify on a regular basis.

          I would think nothing of paying $7 (or more) for a glass of wine in a restaurant. Both are liquid enjoyment :)

          1. That's not too surprising. The Jamaica Blue Mountain was about $5-$6 on the Clover and this is rarer than JBM coffee.
