I was happy to receive a sample bag of this the other day but was completely taken aback by the astronomical price per bag of the actual coffee variety being sold. As you may already know, this is Stumptown's roast of the ultra-special, extremely rare, incredibly expensive Colombia Mauricio Shattah Red Gesha. This bag of coffee comes complete with its own holding box which I'm sure can be used to hold lesser quality coffees once you go through this 12 oz. $75 bag. I'd love to know who's buying this.
This one has a long name. Sample bags of Stumptown Grand Cru Colombia Mauricio Shattah Red Gesha are being selectively handed out at the Ace Hotel NYC location. If you always wanted to try Stumptown's top-of-the-line Grand Cru roasts, this is a great way to do so. Available while supplies last.
If you just want to go ahead and buy a bag, you can do so off the Stumptown website for $75.
Ahh, that once-in-a-lifetime mentality and how that contributes to the price difference between a regular big party and big wedding. Both are essentially the same thing when you think about it, but the importance we might put on that day actually contributes to the higher price for all things involved.
