Did you know that the most expensive coffee is made from cat poop?
“Kopi Luwak” is the most expensive coffee in the world. It comes from Indonesia and is made from beans digested from the Asian Palm Civet. In other words, it comes from cat poop.
It’s produced with the help of the adorable palm civet who eat the coffee cherries and then… pass the beans.
The unique fermentation process that occurs as the beans travel through the civet’s digestive tract is said to offer a smooth finish and very distinctive flavour to the final brew.
Not only is this one of the most bizarre methods of making coffee, but for up to over £400 a kilogram, Kopi Luwak is also one of the most expensive coffees available in the world today.
