The coffee shop is roasting the Elida Geisha 803 coffee beans from Panama. They were sold at $803 per pound, the highest price paid for the beans at the Best of Panama green auction. The auction is referred to as the "Oscars for coffee."

Only 100 pounds of the beans were available for purchase,  and Klatch snatched up 10 of them, becoming the only coffee shop in the United States to have it. The beans were divided among their several Southern California locations and one shop in San Francisco.

According to ABC7 News, a local Bay Area news station, the 10 pounds of beans comes out to about 80 cups of the Elida Geisha coffee.

"It's a unique coffee that comes from Panama. It's by far better than any of the coffee you hear about that comes from animals," Bo Thiara, co-owner of the Bay Area Klatch, told ABC 7.

The Elida Geisha 803 is a type of Kopi Luwak coffee which is made from partially digested coffee beans. The beans are eaten by civets, a cat-like animal, and then pooped out.
