The worlds most expensive coffee is made from the poo of the Civet cat also known as the Kopi Luwak.
This little guy/girl loves the ripe purple coffee bean. The Kopi Luwak coffee gets its smooth, nutty, non acidic, 50% less caffeinated flavor from the partially digested process it incures as it travels down the digestive track and then ejected out the other end.
This gold mine of poo is then gathered washed and sold for $100/lb
I sampled this “Bucket List” coffee to discover its smooth taste.
The beauty of being educated is that it allows me the opportunity to become aware of the contrast in consuming this, no ordinary, “cup of joe.” In order to satisfy the demand and consistency of this sought after “cup of silk;” these animals are being captured.
