Yauco-Selecto-AA-CoffeeWe all know that coffee is one of the most soothing types of beverages on the whole planet. Some drink it because otherwise they’ll fall asleep throughout the day. Others drink it to study the night before their final exam, and then you have people who just drink some coffee because they like it.

However, many of us are often complaining about the coffee prices these days. Paying 2 pounds for a small cup of espresso seems a bit much. But if you taught your brand of coffee was expensive, wait till you check out these brands below. As major coffee lovers we would of course like to know about some of the most authentic and expensive coffees on our planet. Here’s a small summary of some of the most expensive coffees in the world (for the full detailed list please visit

Coffee Yauco Selecto AA (Puerto Rico) – $24/lb.

(the “cheapest” of them all)

Blue Mountain (Wallenford Estate, Jamaica) – $49/lb.

(The beans grow only in the Jamaican Blue Mountains and are fairly difficult to harvest. Almost 80% of this coffee is exported to Japan.)

St. Helena Coffee Company’s Island (St. Helena) – $79/lb.

(If you can afford to spend almost 80 bucks on a cup of coffee you should definitely try out St. Helena’s coffee. It became populaur because the one and only Napoleon Bonaparte praised its taste and planted seeds himself on the island of St. Helena, around 1,200 miles from the coast of Africa)

Luwak Coffee (Indonesia) – $160/lb.

(believe it or not, but this coffee is harvested in a rather ‘unusual’ way. The coffee is produced from coffee beans that have been eaten and digested by the Mongoose. We’ll let you be the judge about the price tag)
