  • Most expensive Starbuck in the world

    Forget the Big Mac index, I am trying to find the world's most expensive place to have a coffee based on the Starbucks index.

    I am drinking a coffee I just ordered in Starbucks, Vevey, Switzerland. It is the only type of coffee a grown man should order publicly, a double espresso. I paid 4.40 Swiss francs which id $ 4,67 at today's forex rate.

    So there we have it. Double espresso, $4.67 international comparissons please, where is the world's most expensive and cheapest place to order Starbucks?
    What would Occam say?

    In the USA their most expensive coffee is now $7.00, limited availability mainly in Seattle:

    But that’s small beans compared with Starbucks’ newest premium coffee, the “Costa Rica Finca Palmilera.” Made from a rare, heirloom, hard-to-grow coffee varietal called “Geisha,” it costs $40 for a half-pound bag.

    Or it’s $6 for a tall cup, and $7 for a grande. And that’s for plain, black coffee with nothing foamy, gingerbready or peppermint-mocha-y about it.

        Would you believe the most expensive coffee is processed through a cat? They collect the coffee beans from the cat poop!

        Cost $80 a cup and $700 per pound.


        Coffee cherries are eaten by Civet cats, processed through their digestive system, and the beans are harvested on the other side. According to ValBeMar's website, the Civets, found in the islands of Java and Sumatra, can’t digest the fruit’s inner beans and they are excreted whole.
        The beans are collected from the cat droppings, cleaned and roasted just like any other coffee bean. But the fermentation process while inside the stomach of the cat is the key to its exquisite taste, according to the company.

        An Indonesian company brews it here as it is done in cafes in Jakarta.
        "It is very delicious, very smooth and so luxurious," said Valerie Sindal, director of sales and marketing for ValBeMar Specialty Coffee.

              Makes me wonder if it has a hand in producing Civet Regal Scotch Whiskey.

                  There appears to be no relationship between a Civet and a Chivas, the former being Indonesian and the latter being Mexican.
