Recession Cannot Stop The $13 Cup Of Fancy Coffee

The Baltimore Sun is reporting that a local coffee shop called Spro is offering a $13 cup of coffee. And yes, it’s just a cup of coffee.

“It’s really a fantastic kind of coffee,” Spro owner Jay Caragay told the Baltimore Sun. “It’s very juicy, fruity, good mouth feel, medium bodied.”

The coffee beans come from El Salvador and are apparently some seriously fancy sh*t. CNN says once it’s brewed it’s worth about $1 an ounce. To whom, we are not certain.
