£15 for a cup of coffee

A boutique cafe is selling what it claims is the “perfect” cup of coffee — and if the caffeine doesn’t wake you up, the price certainly will.

The coffee from Le Café Alain Ducasse in King’s Cross costs £15 a cup. It is made from coffee beans which are exported in limited quantities from smallholder farmers in war-torn Yemen through military checkpoints.

The coffee, said to combine notes of bergamot orange, cocoa nibs and grape, followed by red berries and honey, is billed by the company behind it as “one of the finest in the world”. More here.

I suspect many people will try one cup of coffee just to see how perfect it is. Not sure there is too much longevity here though.
