Or at least, that would be my beverage order if I had a spare $180,000-odd burning a hole in my pocket. That’s because the Apple head-honcho has very kindly offered up a coffee meet and greet at the company’s Cupertino headquarters for one wealthy lucky fan as part of a charity auction.

The experience, valid for two people, is currently at the $180,000 bid mark, with 19 days left to go. It’s a steep asking price, but at least it goes to a good cause, with all proceeds going straight to The RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights.

As you’d expect from a trip to Apple’s mythical 1 Infinite Loop, there’s a fairly detailed legal disclaimer that accompanies the auction. During and following the 30-min to 1 hour meeting the winner “cannot blog, social network, talk to press, write about, take pictures or record during the experience in any way due to security regulations.”

You’ll also have to cover your own travel and accommodation, but if you’re spending that amount of money to begin with we hardly think that’s going to be a problem.
