The most expensive cup of coffee in the U.S. can now be found in New York City and it’ll cost you $18.

The pricey java is available at Extraction Lab, a new shop located in the Industry City complex of Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighborhood. Extraction Lab serves as the headquarters of craft coffee brewer Alpha Dominche, which uses steam and computer-powered vacuums to produce a brand of high-end coffee dubbed “Steampunk.”
