9. Los Planes (Citala, El Salvador) – $40 per pound
Los Planes is a type of coffee originated from Citala, El Salvador.
It won the second place at the 2006 Cup of Excellence, and for $40 per pound you can taste it.
This coffee is cultivated deep in the mountainous region of Chalatenango, El Salvador on a farm operated by Sergio Ticas Yeyes, who inherited the farm from his father.
While paying $40 per pound might seem steep to the average consumer, for the coffee lovers out there it is a fair price to pay for a cup of Los Planes family grown coffee.
