At $65 for six ounces of coffee, it's either highway robbery or the best small bag of beans ever.
Connoisseurs will note hints of dried strawberry, coffee blossom and crystalline; frugal java seekers will note its price.
Either way, caffeine fanatics who want to sample the expensive beans dubbed Hussein al-Haba can do so at Blue Bottle cafes, all of which started selling the product five days ago. A cup of this java will set you back $16.
The costly brew comes thanks to a partnership between Blue Bottle and Port of Mokha, founded by Yemini-American coffee founder Mokhtar Alkhanshali.
Blue Bottle is also offering a limited release edition of the beans, grown high on sun-scorched and rocky slopes of Yemen's Hayma region. The coffee will be roasted and shipped only on June 20, due to limited quantities.
