A view of the Starbucks store at Brewery Blocks in Portland, Oregon, one of the 46 locations where you can sip the $7 Costa Rica Finca Palmilera coffee.



By Ben Popken, TODAY contributor

Fancy a $7 cup of Starbucks?

In this day of skyrocketing gas, grain and food prices, only a select few do.

But that's the price for a special rare brew Starbucks is serving up in just a few locations.

If you want to sip this black elixir, you'll have to ask for "Costa Rica Finca Palmilera," and fork over $40 for a half-pound. Also, you'll need to live in Seattle or Portland.

Only 48 stores in the country have the beans, and 46 of them are in one of these two cities.

It's not just any Starbucks there that have them, either. Only locations boasting the $11,000 "Clover" coffee machine are worthy to brew the beans. The coffee doesn't have to be made in the Clover, though. It's also available as a pour-over.

Even if I would have won the powerball last night I wouldn't pay 7 bucks for coffee. That is just nuts.

I have always wondered who buys this coffee.. I am guessing most are like Frazier and his brother Niels.

Crazy! I bitch about paying just a little more than that for a whole big can of coffee.
