San Francisco's Klatch Coffee Selling $75 Cup Of Coffee
/ CBS San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/CNN) - A single cup of coffee has sold for $75 at Klatch Coffee's new San Francisco location, which hosted a tasting over the weekend.
The single-source organic coffee bean at the heart of this exclusive brew is known asElida Geisha Natural, which garnered a record $803 per pound at auction and cost nearly $1,200 a pound after roasting, according to a CNN affiliate.
Klatch purchased 10 pounds of the beans, which is just 10 percent of the 100 pounds that was auctioned off worldwide at the Best of Panama green coffee auction hosted by the Specialty Coffee Association of Panama in 2018.
"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," Bo Thiara, co-owner of Klatch's new Northern California location, told KGO.
Couldn't make the May 12 tasting event at Klatch's new San Francisco location? (No tastings are scheduled at Klatch's five Southern California locations.)
Don't worry. Klatch is selling the beans online for $75 for 18 grams (0.63 ounces) of coffee.
If $75 is too pricey, even for this limited supply, other award-winning bags are priced as low as $14.95 for 12 ounces.
