THE PRICIEST COFFEE, HONG KONG
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.
