Meet the $20 cup of coffee

Inflation affects all of us, but paying $20 for a single cup of coffee seems beyond the pale. 

This, however, is no ordinary coffee with Sydney-based Single O inviting caffeine heads to celebrate International Coffee Day with a history-making, splurge-worthy sip or two. 


The Sydney coffee pioneers will be sharing a record-breaking coffee from Ethiopia - on International Coffee Day: October 1. 

The Rumudamo coffee was the number two winning lot from the first ever Ethiopian Cup of Excellence earlier this year, and Single O picked up a few kilos of the beans to bring home and roast for Aussies to try.

The coffee will be released a splurge-worthy $20 per cup at Single O Surry Hills and at 19 of their partner cafes and restaurants around the country including Cutler & Co in Melbourne, The Spot Specialty Coffee in Brisbane, Bread and Butter in Launceston, Tasmania. 

The Rumudamo coffee was purchased at auction by Single O and a few other buyers globally at the first Cup of Excellence (the “Oscars of coffee”) competition held in Ethiopia. 

Single O head of coffee Wendy De Jong says: “We are pinching ourselves that we were able to participate in this historic Ethiopia auction and bring Winning Lot #2, out of 1,459 total entries, to coffee fans in Australia. 

"This coffee was awarded an incredible 90 points by the international jury, and blew us all away at our staff cupping with its incredibly sweet and dynamic fruit flavours. It was our unanimous favourite."

There are only about 3,000 cups to be served around Australia, with 396 numbered bags, and those who order Rumudamo will receive a special coaster to keep as a memento. 

“Our hard work has paid off and we are so happy and grateful,” said Rumudamo manager Bogale Woldehana.
