Is This The Most Expensive Coffee Ever?

A seller on eBay is auctioning a “VINTAGE STUMPTOWN COFFEE PANAMA ESMERALDA GEISHA IN COLLECTOR JAR” and its starting bid is set at $3,000. Buyers have the option of purchasing the item outright for $6,000. Shipping is free.

The coffee in question hails from the 2011 harvest of the famed Panama Esmeralda estate, and was roasted on January 23, 2012. This makes the coffee nearly two years past its roast date and probably as delicious as the 1992 bottle of Crystal Pepsi, also available on eBay.

 

The seller, “morningoaks”, is based out of San Francisco and has a reasonable seller/buyer rating with 104 reviews, so it’s probably all legitimate. But who is going to pay $3000 for a past-crop two year off roast jar of Geisha coffee?

We’ll keep you posted.

FYI, here’s the full text of the listing. We’ve kept it in ALL CAPS LOCK with respect to the seller’s original intent.

THIS IS A VINTAGE STUMPTOWN COFFEE (PORTLAND, OREGON) PANAMA ESMERALDA 2011 GEISHA COFFEE IN ITS ORIGINAL COLLECTORS JAR. IT WAS ROASTED ON JANUARY 23, 2012 AND HAS NEVER BEEN OPENED.
