PORTLAND Ore. (KPTV) - Starting next month a Portland café will start selling $150 cups of coffee, created from award-winning beans.

Australian-based coffee company Proud Mary Coffee Roasters will be offering a Black Jaguar Geisha coffee from Panama starting Feb. 6, and just 22 cups will be sold in the United States at the company’s cafes in Portland and Austin, Texas.

So, what makes the coffee so special that they can charge $150 for a single cup? The company said the coffee recently won first place in the 2022 Best of Panama competition, one of the most prestigious coffee competitions in the world. Proud Mary paid $2,000 for just one pound of the beans.

For curious coffee drinkers who want to try a cup, the coffee roaster is giving away one cup of coffee in the United States to the person who wins the golden ticket included in the purchase of a Hartmann presale tin from Proud Mary’s website for $34.

Purchases have to be made by Jan. 26 to be entered to win the golden ticket.

Proud Mary opened its flagship location in the U.S. in 2017 in Portland, a café and wholesale roastery.
