Are you willing to dole out $90 for just one cup of coffee? Well, most probably the answer would be a big “NO” after all, how expensive can a coffee get. But the Kopi Luwak is not your regular coffee because it this cup of java has been extracted from the feces of a small exotic animal called the Paradoxuras!
This unique coffee called Kopi Luwak is originally from Sumatra, an Indonesian island and is produced in the most grotesque manner by the Paradoxurus, which is from the civet family which looks like a cross between a mongoose and a cat. It so happens that the Paradoxurus swallows the coffee cherries, which then enter its digestive system but are excreted in an intact form. These beans are then ‘hand picked’, cleaned and finally they are roasted. Then these beans are used to produce the most exotic and expensive Kopi Lowak that normally would cost you around $90!
