Would you pay $10 for a cup of coffee? Customers pay that much at Budin a new Scandinavian coffee shop in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

For ten dollars, according to Dana Shuster in the New York Post, a Barista spends 15 minutes steaming, stirring and fussing over a single latte before placing it on a silver platter with church-like reverence. The drink’s foam is artfully swirled into a tree-like design and sprinkled with raw licorice powder imported from Denmark. Beside it sits a “complimentary” marble-sized ball of chocolate-covered Danish licorice.  By the way that ten dollars doesn’t include a tip.

When you think about it though, you’re already paying close to five dollars for some coffee drinks so to add richer ingredients it’s not that far of a stretch.

For me, there is nothing like a good hot cup of coffee. I’ve owned 2 coffee houses in New Jersey, Coffee Dot Comedy in Sea Isle City and The Daily Grind in Ocean Grove. I  usually make the coffee when I come to work. I like it with half and half no sugar.

Who do you think serves the best cup of coffee in New Jersey and how do you like your coffee?
