Determining the absolute rarity of specialty coffee can be subjective, and availability may change over time. Here is the ultimate list of the rarest and most sought-after coffees:

Grown in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica, this coffee is known for its mild flavor and lack of bitterness. Strict regulations contribute to its rarity.

Geisha variety coffee with a unique flavor profile, often featuring floral and tea-like notes.

Grown on the slopes of the Mauna Loa volcano in the Kona District of Hawaii, Kona coffee is rare due to its specific geographical region and growing conditions. It is often characterized by a smooth and mild taste.

Also known as Civet Coffee, produced by collecting beans eaten and excreted by civet cats, undergoing fermentation in the process.

  • Black Ivory Coffee (Thailand)

Processed through fermentation in elephants' digestive systems, resulting in a distinctive and rare taste.

  • Helena Coffee (St. Helena)

Grown on the isolated island of St. Helena, this coffee is rare due to its limited production and unique growing conditions.

Involves Jacu birds consuming ripe coffee cherries and excreting the beans, leading to a coffee with flavors influenced by the bird's digestive system.

  • Yemeni Coffee

Particularly the "Mocha" variety, it is highly prized for its unique and complex flavor. Political instability and difficult growing conditions contribute to its rarity.

  • Galapagos Coffee

Grown on the Galapagos Islands, this coffee is rare due to the isolated location and limited agricultural space. It has a unique flavor influenced by the island's volcanic soil.

  • Pacamara (Various Regions)

A hybrid coffee variety known for its large beans and unique flavor profile, grown in limited quantities in different coffee-producing regions.

Keep in mind that specialty coffee availability can change, and new rare coffee varieties may emerge. Additionally, ethical considerations, such as sustainable and responsible farming practices, should be taken into account (namely in the case of Kopi Luwak, a.k.a. “cat poop coffee”) when purchasing rare and exotic coffees.
