Starbucks has introduced the most expensive cup of coffee the chain has ever sold -- priced at $7 a cup! 

The new coffee is made from rare Costa Rican beans called Finca Palmelera. The coffee is expensive because it grows only at high altitudes and there are fewer cherries per tree.

A medium, or grande cup is priced at $7. A small is $6.

The new coffee was introduced at 46 Starbucks stores in the Pacific Northwest.
