August 10th, 2007

By Marke Andrews, Vancouver Sun

I usually take milk with my coffee, but adding a dairy product to Vancouver’s most expensive brew somehow felt sacrilegious, like grease-penciling a moustache on Raphael’s Madonna del Granduca.

I recently received a press release that sounded snobby and hucksterish: “Intelligentsia Roasting Works Offers Up the World’s Most Expensive Coffee.” It explained that for a limited time I could purchase a half-pound of roasted Panama Hacienda La Esmeralda Geisha beans for a mere […]
