Video Taste Test: Starbucks' New $7 Cup of Coffee

Jimmy Kimmel runs a comparison and gets some entertaining results.

Starbucks has rolled out a high-falutin' $7 cup of java in the Pacific Northwest. Made from rare Geisha beans, the Finca Palmilera brew is said to leave a "tingly, light" feeling, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.

Half-pound bags of the stuff sold out within 24 hours, the paper says.

Is it worth all the fuss? Comedian Jimmy Kimmel ran a taste test (see video above) and the results were entertaining.

Would you pay $7 for a really great cup of joe? Tell us in the comments.

Probably not. I don't think I could tell the difference between a $7 cup of coffee and a $0.69 cup of coffee.

I love Peets. Starbucks has really gone downhill for those customers who love coffee and not the dessert drinks. A great test and video,
