Most expensive coffee in America belongs to New York shop

NEW YORK (WABC/CNN) – The most expensive cup of coffee in the U.S. can now be found in New York City.

One cup will cost you $18.

Extraction Lab has earned the distinction of having the most expensive coffee in America.

Their Ethiopian Arabica coffee is grown in Panama and made in one of two $7,000 coffee makers called the Steampunk.

“Well, I’m a chef and heard about the $18 coffee and had to have it,” customer Joe Murphy said.

It was already sold out, when Murphy had to opt for some of the cheaper options.

Owner of the new java joint, Thomas Perez, said it’s not about having the most expensive coffee; it’s more about the experience.

“For the people who really want to go wild and try something special, we have that special coffee, it’s amazing,” Perez said.

Extraction Lab takes the title of most expensive coffee in the U.S. from the previous holder, San Francisco’s Blue Bottle. It sells a cup of coffee for $16.
