If you like you’re coffee smooth, silky and expensive, you might want to get yourself a cup of De’Longhi Caffe Raro which retails for £50 ($100) per cup.
This blend combines two of the world`s rarest coffee beans, Kopi Luwak and Jamaican Blue Mountain to give a truly luxurious cup of coffee.
David Cooper creator of De`Longhi`s Caffé Raro, World Barista Championship Judge and Board Director of the World Barista Championships is quoted as saying:
`De`Longhi`s Caffé Rarois an extremely exciting coffee and a first for the UK – if not the world! These two incredibly rare coffees have never been blended before and the result is a very rich and full tasting espresso. These coffees have been slowly hand roasted for around 12 minutes to ensure that we maximise the potential of each coffee. The final roast colour is quite dark to ensure that the espresso is perfect for a smooth latte or cappuccino,`
For the uninitiated it’s worth pointing out that the Kopi Luwak coffee bean is widely regarded as the most expensive individual coffee bean on the market. Produced in Indonesia, this rare bean is digested by the Palm cat, a process which creates an earthy flavour celebrated by coffee aficionados. With only 200 kilos produced each year demand for the bean is strong and prices remain high.
This luxury blend will be on sale for the first time in Peter Jones, the landmark Chelsea department store and through the De`Longhi website throughout April, with limited availability. All proceeds from the sale of the coffee will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support to help people whose lives have been affected by cancer.
