Would You Pay $7 for a Cup of Coffee?

Do you think $4 is a bit much for a vanilla latte at Starbucks? Well then, cover your eyes, because the ultra-popular coffee chain is making java even more costly. Starbucks will soon be offering its new Costa Rica Finca Palmilera coffee -- and charging $7 for a Grande-sized cup.

So what's so great about this Costa Rican cup of joe? Well, it's made with Geisha beans -- which is a rare variety of coffee beans with a delicate fruity aroma, a red-berry color and only grown in parts of Central America. But do you think the rare form of coffee bean is worth the marked-up price? We'll let you be the judge of that.

Not long ago, $7 was the price of a hearty lunch. Now it's the price of a cup of coffee. Not just any coffee, but a Grande-sized cup of Starbucks new Costa Rica Finca Palmilera.

    No, that's ridiculous!
    I'm old school. I like a cup of joe black, no cream, no sugar. and I still pay a dollar and a half for it. The way a man should. No latte, no fratte, none of that gay man coffee that costs $4 or even $7. the feminization of men seems to be coming full force.

    am I the only one who still calls it a cup of joe?

    So we are going through a recession and people have 7 dollars to pay for a cup of coffee. Only the government thinks this way.

    Yes, if it's a premium and rare type of coffee.

    I'll try pretty much anything once. Hell, I spent $5 on water once just to try it.

    I make many an awesome cup at home from the pound of beans I pay less than $10.00 for. Why any rational person would pay $7.00 for a cup is beyond me...
  • Lana WankerBait 2012/12/06 22:03:36
    I used to use beans myselff but then I had a real cup of coffee from Starbucks and I threw the beans in the trash.
  • WankerBait Lana 2012/12/06 22:29:47
    Don't misunderstand, I've had Starbucks too, and I enjoy their coffee, but not to the tune of $7.00/cup... I don't know what brand of coffee beans you were grinding, brewing, and drinking, but the coffee I make at home using my French press is definitely "real" coffee. It's better than Starbucks IMO...

    I find this telling. Almost the entire country says that $7.00 is too much. Yet, if it came right down to it, those same individuals will probably try is just once. I voted yes, not because I would buy one every day, but because I would at least try it. I think most people would, if only once.

    It's a drink. I wouldn't go into 7/11 and leave with a $10 cup of coffee. It all depends on the setting and the situation.

    I wonder how many voting no feel the need to go to a bar and get drunk of expensive cheap alcoholic beverages?

    Its rare and hard to find what do you want it to be 4 dollars like the regular coffee. I would buy it once a year.

    Anybody that's too damn lazy to brew their own coffee deserves to pay $7 a cup!
    I can get a pound of great coffee for $10 and it will last me for a month.
  • Lana Job 2012/12/06 22:07:24

    I'm not a consistent coffee drinker but if it was so tasty like none other, I'd probably try it out.
