Do you still remember the 4988 cup of coffee reported in the workshop a few days ago? Here comes the more "outrageous" high-priced coffee!

A coffee shop in Shanghai launched a cup of coffee worth 6200 yuan on Nov. 8, attracting widespread attention, according to relevant media reports.

The store responded that this is the winner of this year's Panamanian Best Coffee Bean Competition (BOP). The price of raw beans is very high and the quantity is limited, so the price is also high. A cup of coffee around 250ml costs 6200 yuan.

Why is a cup of coffee so expensive? If you want to answer this question, you should start with the origin of this bean.

The controversial Carmen Manor Water washing Rose Summer is the champion bean of the BOP, with a score of 96.5 points, setting a new record for the highest evaluation of Rose Summer in all previous washing groups. BOP is one of the top coffee raw bean competitions in the world, with strict scoring standards. Carmen's washing Rose Summer is under such harsh conditions that it breaks through the encirclement of 50 grades of coffee beans.

In addition, if you drink coffee not only to refresh, but also to pursue its flavor and taste, you must have heard of the variety "Rose Summer". On the one hand, rose beans have unique flavor and aroma of flowers and fruits, and there is a great market demand; on the other hand, rose summer has high requirements for climate, altitude and soil conditions in the planting area, and in order to ensure its quality and flavor, it is necessary to complete picking and treatment within a specific time, which puts forward high requirements for local farmers. Because of the imbalance between supply and demand, the price of rose beans will not be low because of scarcity.

As for why the price of a cup of coffee can go up to more than 1000 yuan, beyond the imagination of ordinary people? Let's settle the bill.

In the BOP bid, it sold for $10005 a kilogram as buyers from all over the world competed with each other for championship beans. Together with the international freight, customs duties, value-added tax, customs declaration and other expenses from Panama to China, the price of raw beans is about 100000 yuan per kilogram in RMB. It takes a baking process for raw beans to become ripe beans, and taking into account the 20% wear and tear caused by dehydration and defects, the price of raw beans is about 130000 yuan a kilogram.

If the above stores really use the standard king of BOP in 2023, and each cup of beans on the market is generally 15 grams of beans, taking into account the loss in the grinding process, increased to 16 grams of a cup, the cost of 16 grams of cooked beans is about 2000 yuan. If you add in the price difference between raw bean merchants and roasters, as well as store operating costs and risk costs, the cost to be borne by coffee shops will be at least NT $3,000 to NT $4,000.

Some netizens may wonder, even if the coffee beans are so good, will anyone really be willing to spend nearly 5,000, 7,000 or even tens of thousands of yuan on a small cup of coffee? "who is drinking 6200 cups of coffee?"

In a way, these high-priced coffee is not just the coffee itself, but has been sought after as a kind of "work of art". Data show that the output of beans with more than 90 points in BOP bidding is very rare, and the whole award-winning batch of Rose Summer is only about 25 kilograms, which is awarded by 6 (joint) buyers around the world. High quality + low quantity "double buff superposition", there is the existence of "works of art", naturally, there will be "artists" willing to pay the bill.

The Shanghai coffee shop said that there are only two 6200 yuan cups of coffee in the shop, one of which has been booked, and there is only one left in the store.

Someone always asks, is it worth it? Whether expensive coffee is worth it or not is a very subjective question. As netizens say, if you have money, drink freely, if you don't have money, it's good to drink without money. There are always people who like it and can afford it.

Anyway, I can't afford it.
