NEW YORK (Reuters) - A small cafe in Brooklyn, New York, offers some of the rarest and most expensive coffee on the planet.

Would you pay US $18 for a cup of Joe at Alpha Dominche?

Its chief executive Thomas Perez says: "The whole thing here about having all those coffees, all those varieties, all those origins and different roasters, is just to showcase what coffee is.

"Here, baristas are brewing some of the rarest coffee on the planet…like Ethiopian Geisha - a top of the line variety from a very picky grower called Ninety Plus."
