You Can Buy the Highest-Rated Coffee of All Time Right Now

Dragonfly Coffee Roaster’s Panamanian Geisha varietal was grown in the shadow of a volcano.


Dragonfly Coffee Roasters, one of the best coffee roasters in America, just dropped a trio of coffees that will sell out very quickly.

Sourced from a Panamanian coffee farm in the shadow of a volcano, Dragonfly’s Elida Estate Green Tip collection is made up of three limited quantity 8-ounce bags of $100 coffee. The coffee is a Geisha varietal, renowned for exceptional cup quality and tedious production needs, and each of the bags is processed in a different manner.

The hype around these beans is compounded by the roaster, too. The 2019 Roast Magazine Microroaster of the Year is a shoe-in on Coffee Review’s annual Top 30 lists and pushes origin expansion (Myanmar, Yemen, Timor-Leste) more than most of its contemporaries. Plus, Coffee Review scored the Elida Natural bag a whopping 98 out of 100, the highest score ever given on the site. The beans also broke the world record for the most expensive publically auctioned green coffee at $1,029 per pound. “Complex flowers (citrus blossom, ginger blossom, aromatic orchid), bright, fresh fruit (pear, peach, tangerine), sweet cocoa, sandalwood, a hint of candycap mushroom in aroma and cup. In structure, juicy and lyrically bright with a subtly pungent umami base; light-footed, satiny mouthfeel. Pear leads into long, vibrantly flavor-saturated finish,” the site’s review of the high-scoring bag reads.

Dragonfly said bags are “EXTREMELY LIMITED” in its announcement email. They’re available through the roaster’s shop now.
