Luwak Coffee is made from coffee cherries that have been eaten by common palm civets, which use their keen sense of smell to select the choicest and ripest beans. The digestion process removes the flesh from the crimson Sumatran berry and the beans, supposedly sweeter as a result of having passed through the animal, are hand-collected from the jungle floor.
$104 per pound
Hacienda La Esmeralda's Geisha coffee set an online auction record when it sold for over $50 dollars per pound, unroasted, on May 30, 2006. The coffee, which is grown in the shade of old guava trees, has been widely and enthusiastically praised for its flavor and aroma. In April, it placed first in the SCAA "Best of Panama" competition, with a score of 94.6 out of 100.
Island of St. Helena Coffee Company St. Helena
$79 per pound
This very exclusive coffee is grown on the island of St. Helena, 1,200 miles off the coast of Africa. Cultivated from a varietal brought from Yemen in 1730, it owes much of its success to Napoleon Bonaparte, who started a vogue by praising the coffee during his exile on the island. St. Helena coffee dropped from sight for more than a century, until David R. Henry began exporting it again in the early 1990s. Production is low (about 12 tons per year), and once again, demand is high.
El Injerto Huehuetenango, Guatemala
$25 per pound green at auction
Expected to retail for more than $50 per pound
This boutique lot of coffee by El Injerto, specially prepared for the Cup of Excellence auction, is from the region of Huehuetenango, Guatemala. It recently won first prize in the 2006 Cup of Excellence. This coffee is likely to retail for more than $50 per pound, after it has been roasted.
Fazenda Santa Ines Minas Gerais, Brazil
$50 per pound green at auction
This coffee is the highest rated in Cup of Excellence history, with a combined score of 95.85 points out of 100. Only 12 60-kilogram (132-pound) bags of this limited production coffee were available at auction; they were purchased green by Caffe Artigiano, an independently owned café in Canada, and two Australian roasters. You can't go out and buy a bag, but cups are available at Caffe Artigiano and, occasionally and with much fanfare, other specialty shops around the world.
