The most expensive coffee in the world costs $100 per cup. The beans are taken from the droppings of the civet, a cross between a cat and a monkey which lives in Indonesia.
“The civets eat the soft coffee cherries, digest the fruit pulp and excrete the beans on the forest floor, because they cannot digest the beans. Plantation workers then collect the beans, which are sold as Luwak coffee. The bean is rare, with less than 450lb harvested each year.”
One woman who tried it mentioned it was “earthy and smooth.” I bet it was!
I am going to the U.K. at the end of the month. If you know me, you know I am too much of a tightwad to even consider buying a cup, but should I even try it if somehow I could get a free cup? Would you?
