A new coffee shop has opened in Sunset Park and they are selling your morning cup of joe at $18 a cup! Yes $18, smashing the previous record of $16 a cup held by a café in San Fransisco …not really a national record we’re all that proud of holding.
The secret behind Extraction Lab’s costly beverage is in their über-fancy “steampunk” coffee machine. Bedford and Bowery described the machine as “a cross between a French press and a draft beer tap. . . operated by an iPad app and designed to combine all the elements of drip, French press, and espresso brewing.”
Well I guess NYC’s coffee can join the list of the other unnecessarily expensive things in the city; It’ll be in good company with rent, the subway, cocktails and cinema popcorn.
If you’re keep to try the countries most expensive coffee you can find the Extraction Lab at 51 35th St. in Brooklyn. Bring a credit card …or remortgage your apartment …or forget about early retirement.
