Think you’ve had some of the world’s most expensive coffee?
While a cup of the world’s favorite energizing drink might not cost more than a $1 or $2 at your local coffee shop, there are a few specialty brews out there that are far more costly. Whether these coffee brews are indeed better than your standard cup is a matter of taste. And budget.
We have compiled a list of the 4 most expensive cups of coffee in the world, in a style similar to our take on the best cities for food.

Price tag (per serving): $7
When compared with the price tags of the other coffees mentioned in our countdown, the Costa Rica Finca Palmilera sold by Starbucks looks somewhat humble. But considering that you pay $7 for a cup of coffee – black – it does amount to being 7 times more expensive than the regular cup sold at the same company, for only $1. The Costa Rica beans used to make the coffee, also referred to as “Geisha”, are grown in Central America.
