Guinness World Records - "Singapore company creates world’s most expensive coffee pod and adds 22K gold dust"

Start-up company Medano Coffee Pte Ltd (Singapore) wanted to launch its new range of premium beverages by attempting a Guinness World Records title.

The brand’s founders Wee Hao and Chris decided to create the world’s Most expensive coffee pod and donate the proceeds to charity.

They blended the most luxurious of coffee capsules from the highest quality King Jantan peaberry coffee beans and 22K gold dust, which they say creates a much richer flavour.

The peaberry bean is a Mandheling coffee found in North Sumatra, Indonesia that has floral, spicy, cocoa and caramel tasting notes.

The limited edition coffee pods are being sold as a set of five for $388 each, which is a whopping $77.60 Singaporean dollars per pod ($54.63 USD, £43.65 GBP).
