How expensive is too expensive for a single cup of coffee? Photo by 401(k)2012/flickr

Well, at least you have $7 coffee in your cup?

That’s the new price tag for the newest Starbucks’ brew per cup at participating locations in Seattle and Portland. Of course they’d do that in the Pacific NW.

The San Francisco Chronicle’s breaking food news blog Inside Scoop reports, thankfully, no San Francisco coffee retailer regularly sells coffee that insanely expensive. Philz comes close with their Jamaica Blue pour over. And the other bougie coffee haunts in the Mission like Four Barrel, Blue Bottle and Coffee Bar only hit the $5 mark.
