Kopi Luwak - $600 per pound
While Kopi Luwak may be among one of the world's priciest coffees, it would be equally at home on an episode of Fear Factor, once you hear how it's made. Named after the Indonesian words for 'coffee' and 'civet', Kopi Luwak is in fact extracted from civet dung, after it has been digested and had most of the caffeine removed. What remains is a wonderfully mellow bean, which can sell for up to $600 a pound. Even more unbelievable is the fact that only 500 - 1,000 pounds of Kopi Luwak are produced per year, adding to its exclusivity. If you can stomach its unique production process, and have the cash in hand for such an expensive cuppa, we suggest you place an order - but perhaps don't tell your guests exactly how their delicious coffee was made!
Fazenda Santa Ines - $50 per pound
Less controversial but just as tasty is Fazenda Santa Ines, a limited edition brew which was rated number one in the world in the 2007 Cup of Excellence. After receiving its accolades, all 132 pounds of the blend were snapped up by independently owned Canadian coffee shop, Caffe Artigiano, for $50 per pound. Perhaps if you fly over right now, you could enjoy one of the very last cups for sale!
Island of St. Helena Coffee Company - $79 per pound
A favourite of Napoleon Bonaparte, the Island of St. Helena Coffee Company in South Africa produces a rich, delicious blend of coffee prized the world over. With only 12 tons cultivated per year, the coffee is sold to a small, but discerning customer base for the impressive price of $79 per pound. Bottoms up!
Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee - $49 per pound
If the name of this coffee sounds familiar, that's because as one of the world's most sought-after coffees, it's gained a global reputation for quality and flavour. Harvested in the mountains of Jamaica, Blue Mountain Coffee is delicious enough to command a price of $49 per pound. If that's a price you can afford, make sure you stock up for the holidays - and if it's not, make sure you get it on your Christmas list in time!
