    Sounds like the law diminishing returns to me. There isn’t a coffee in the world worth that (to me, obviously someone paid it).

    I hope it plates your teeth in platinum as you sip it.

  2. I just realized my typo in the headline, too. I’ll adjust it from $550.50 to $500.50 (the actual cost).
