The Cof­fee Aca­demics Hong Kong has laid their hands on a pre­cious seven kilo­grams of Panama Geisha, the most ex­pen­sive cof­fee to date. From Geisha trees cul­ti­vated at 1,800 me­tres above sea level in Panama, they fetched

US$601 a pound at a cof­fee auc­tion by the Spe­cialty Cof­fee As­so­ci­a­tion of Panama. With enough for only 300 cups, The Cof­fee Aca­demics is serv­ing it at HK$400 (S$70) per brew and only at their out­lets at Cause­way Bay, John­ston Road, TaiKoo Shing and the newly opened Roast­ery Lab, in very lim­ited quan­ti­ties each day.

To com­mem­o­rate the mo­men­tous sip, every or­der will come with a snack and a photo cer­tifi­cate. At the same time, The Cof­fee Aca­demics will also be hold­ing cof­fee-brew­ing work­shops and of­fer­ing two lim­ited edi­tion 601 Ex­pe­ri­ence Kits. Kit A (HK$2,500; S$436) fea­tures a kinto, fil­ter pa­per and a jar of the pre­cious beans packed in a box; and Kit B

(HK$1,000; S$174) com­prises a 601 can­dle, a t-shirt and a jar of 601 cof­fee beans. All will be avail­able un­til March 2018.
