Is this the most expensive coffee date ever?

If you'd like to enjoy a coffee date with Apple CEO Tim Cook you might have to mortgage your home, as bidding has passed the $200,000 mark.

AFP is reporting Coffee with Cook, an auction to raise money for Washington-based charity the Robert F. Kennedy Centre for Justice and Human Rights, has attracted a bid of over $200,000 within just days of the auction opening.

By 10am this morning one bidder, identified as TheiPhone911 (obviously an Apple fan) was in the lead for the grand prize of spending 30 minutes to an hour with Cook at Apple headquarters in Cupertino.

The auction, hosted by charity auction site CharityBuzz, still has 19 days remaining and is listed as having an estimated value of $US50,000.

"We expect all winning bidders and their guests to conduct themselves appropriately," the listing reads.

"Polite manners and respect for the generous donor and adherence to any rules or parameters are a must."

Meanwhile the Robert F. Kennedy Centre for Justice and Human RIghts will be delighted with the early competition.

"The RFK Centre's annual auctions empower our human rights advocacy around the world, from courtrooms to classrooms, from Cambodia to California," said organisation president Kerry Kennedy.

"It's an honour to have so many stars from the worlds of business, media, entertainment and sports helping us carry forward Robert Kennedy's dream of a more just and peaceful world."

The chat is limited to two guests, who will have to go through a security screening and be responsible for their own travel and accommodations.
