DailyDirt: Drinking The Most Expensive Coffee
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
Some people really like to drink coffee and are willing to pay nearly any price to do so. There are probably cheaper ways to get caffeine into your system, but if you like the taste of coffee, you might want to try some exotic procedures that are meant to make the coffee drinking experience just so much better. Here are a few links on some cups of coffee you might want to try if you have the money.
- You’ve probably heard of the civet-poop coffee (aka Kopi Luwak) which is supposedly really good. But why not try a similar coffee from an elephant? Black Ivory Coffee isn’t really that expensive. A pack that brews about 30 cups of coffee only costs about $275 (without shipping and handling). [url]
- The ISSpresso machine is how astronauts get coffee (that isn’t instant coffee) on the International Space Station (ISS). The cost of getting a ticket to ride on the ISS is the hefty part. [url]
- Starbucks coffee is significantly more expensive in China. Chinese customers are simply willing to pay more for a cup of joe because it’s a luxury (and transportation costs are a bit high, though not ISS high), but the market for over-priced coffee might be drying up. [url]
