Kopi Luwak, or civet coffee, may be the best (and most expensive) cup of coffee you will ever drink. But there's a catch: The secret behind this heavenly java involves a civet and a highly tuned digestive track.
Kopi luwak or civet coffee is coffee that has passed through the digestive trac of a noctural animal catlike called a civet. Wild civets is found in Asia and Africa.Thai, Filipino, Indonesian producers are now caging civets and force feeding them. Kopi lumak retail for as much as 500$ per pound.
Horribly EXPENSIVE Kopi Luwak or Civet Coffee. In the Cordillera Mountain range in North Luzon, Philippines, is home to wild civets (small cat) who eat the ripest beans of the organic,rainforest coffee plants. The beans pass through the civets undigested, but enzymes in the civets’ stomachs break down the proteins of the beans resulting a smooth, luxurious gourmet coffee. This rare coffee is also known as the "bucket list coffee" from the movie The Bucket List. I've tried it.. not bad!
