Want to know how much this heavenly coffee costs? There are only 45.5 kilograms of the record-breaking coffee in the world and it is called Panama Hacienda La Esmeralda Canas Verdes.
This natural-processed ‘Geisha’ variety was sold at the Best of Panama Specialty Coffee auction for a record price of US$1324.96 (Dh4866.58) per kilogram.
Is it the best coffee in the world? That’s what the Global Specialty Coffee Grading System says. There are very few speciality coffee producers in the world, accounting for just 3 per cent of global coffee production. Arabica and Robusta account for the majority of coffee produced, sold and consumed in the world.
