Starbucks most expensive coffee yet costs $7 a cup

Starbucks has introduced its most expensive coffee which will cost customers up to $7 per cup.

The Costa Rica Finca Palmilera coffee is only available in 48 stores in America, including most in Seattle.

What makes it so special, according to the company, is that it's made from a rare coffee variety, known as Geisha. It's found in Central America and is notoriously difficult to grow.

A tall cup of the coffee costs $6, while a grande is $7. Starbucks is selling eight-ounce bags of the coffee for $40.
