World’s Most Expensive Coffee Beans

Coffee is often regarded as one of the favorite beverages of people across the globe. The drink is not only relishing in taste but is known to have added benefits such as increased productivity, burning fat, and improved metabolism along with brain functioning.

Below are the names of coffee beans that have exorbitant price tags due to their rarity and manufacturing process.

Civet/Kopi Luwak Coffee

These coffee beans are partially digested by the Asian palm Civet, which means the beans pass through the animal’s digestive system, resulting in a unique flavor and definite lack of bitterness. Due to this uncommon production process involved, the coffee beans are expensive and can cost up to $600 per pound.

Panama Hacienda La Esmeralda

Panama Hacienda La Esmeralda is a fine-quality coffee bean well-known for its incredible aroma and flavor. Cultivated primarily in western Panama on the slopes of Mount Baru under the shade of Guava trees, these beans are the most sought-after in the world and cost as much as $100 per pound.

Brazil Fazenda Santa Inês

Not many people know this, but the store price of Fazenda Santa Inês is more than $50 per pound. The coffee beans are grown in the Mina Gerais of Brazil and earned the topmost rating in the 2006 Cup of Excellence Awards.

Guatemala Huehuetenango

Despite being one of the most famous coffee beans, Guatemala Huehuetenango has already earned a spot in the Cup of Excellence Awards in 2006, 2007, and 2002 consecutively. These coffee beans cost up to $50 per pound. They are usually known as El Injerto in the Huehuetenango area of Guatemala.

Jamaica Blue Mountain Beans

People love Jamaica coffee beans for their tender flavor and lack of bitterness. Wallenford Estate in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica is the only spot where these coffee beans are cultivated. The overall price for these beans goes up to $50 per pound.

El Salvador Los Planes

Los Planes is one of the most sought-after coffee beans in the world. Due to their popularity, the flavourful beans have also earned the second position in the Cup of Excellence awards. Cultivated mostly in the Catalan region of El Salvador, the coffee is known for its exceptional taste and costs more than $40 per pound.

Hawaii Kona

Kona coffee beans mostly grow on the volcanic slopes of the Big Island in Hawaii. What makes the drink different from the rest is the unique taste and aroma of beans which are sold at a price of more than $30 per pound. However, to enjoy the authentic taste, do buy samples that sell 100% original Hawaiian Kona Coffee instead of adulterated ones.

Brazil Fazenda São Benedito

Known for its unique taste and rich flavor, Fazenda São Benedito is another quick favorite for expensive coffee beans worldwide. Grown primarily in the Mina Gerais of Brazil, the beans cost more than $20 per pound.

Haiti Blue Pine Forest Beans

Haiti coffee beans are highly-regarded for their rich taste, balanced sweetness, and medium body. The average price of these coffee beans ranges from $20 to $25 per pound. As the coffee beans are farmed at higher altitudes far up on the mountainside, they were saved from the devastating Tsunami waves that rocked the island in 2010. However, production still suffered as the natural disaster took many lives and destroyed the overall infrastructure.

Puerto Rico Yauco Selecto AA

Yauco Selecto AA is a popular coffee bean widely known for its mild taste, tender flavor, and store price of up to $20 per pound. It is mostly grown in the region of Yauco in the southwest mountain slopes of Puerto Rico.
