Australian-based coffee company Proud Mary Coffee Roasters is launching its most expensive coffee to date, a Black Jaguar Geisha coffee from Hartmann Estate in Panama. Available for $150 per cup starting 6 February , a total of just 22 cups will be available in the United States at the company’s cafes in Portland, Oregon, and Austin, Texas, the only locations to offer the specialty coffee nationally.
The coffee recently won first place in the 2022 Best of Panama competition, one of the most prestigious coffee competitions in the world. Longtime supporters of Hartmann Estate, Proud Mary paid $2,000 for one pound of the beans, the company’s most expensive coffee purchase yet.
Who’s got a golden ticket?
To support the deluxe coffee launch and Hartmann Family Takeover, Proud Mary is hosting a golden ticket giveaway through Thursday 26 January. One lucky winner in the United States will find a golden ticket included with their purchase of a Hartmann presale tin via Proud Mary’s website. They’ll receive a Hartmann Natural Geisha coffee in a deluxe tin, as well as a cup of the limited-edition Black Jaguar Geisha coffee. More information is available here.
A globally recognized heritage coffee brand since 2009, Proud Mary will host a Hartmann Family takeover at its Portland and Austin cafes throughout the month of February, offering five additional coffees from the famed producer. Three options will be available as espressos and two natural Geisha coffees will be available as deluxe pours. The beans will also be available for purchase nationally via Proud Mary’s website.
The Hartmann Family coffees are from the Santa Clara region of Panama, different from the traditional Boquette producers that have received most of the Geisha coffee glory throughout the years.
Proud Mary opened its flagship location in the U.S. in 2017 in Portland, a café and wholesale roastery with a modern industrial design and expansive outdoor patio. The company’s expansion to Austin in 2022 worked from the same model to include a full-service kitchen and integrated coffee bar built for high volume. Both locations offer Australian cafe menus, morning cocktails and of course, freshly-roasted coffees and espresso options.
