With a single cup of coffee costing just under $20, the Geisha Starbucks coffee blend is for those who really like their premium coffee.

Although this blend will be introduced to nearly 50 Starbucks locations in Japan for a limited time this fall, the name of the product is more about coffee than it is about meshing with Japanese culture, although it does happen to work quite nicely. The expensive coffee is made from Panama Auromar Geisha beans, which have twice been named the winner of Panama's highest quality coffee. These beans are some of the rarest and most highly prized in the world and Starbucks is now making them available to take home in 8.8 ounce sizes for about $100 per bag—purchasing this will require you to load up your Starbucks app with a lot of cash.
