Would you buy Starbucks' new $7 cup of coffee?
Seattle-based Starbucks is now offering a 16-ounce “grande” cup of coffee for $7, according to a Washington Post online story.
Except in this case, the brew is a specialty coffee — Costa Rica Finca Palmilera, which you can also buy in a half-pound bag for $40.
The coffee is made from a rare, hard-to-grow varietal called Geisha, the Post reports.
The new coffee is available at only 46 locations in the U.S. Northwest — locations that have the expensive Clover brewing machines, according to the Post story.
