World’s most expensive coffee is separated from dung
We have already told you about the world’s top 10 most expensive coffees with Kopi luwak topping the list. So, what’s so unique about Kopi luwak? Actually, the name is derived from Indonesian words for coffee and civet. A civet is a cat-like creature that eats the best of the sweet red coffee cherries harvest. The creature chews off the exterior and gulp down the hard inner core of the bean. When the beans go through the digestion process, most of the caffeine is removed and the resulting thing is a mellow coffee bean, which comes out with the dung. Amazingly, these coffee beans sell for up to $600 a pound after you get them out of the dung. You get five ounces of beans from one pound of civet dung. A mere 500 to 1,000 ponds of this coffee come to shelves each year, which accounts for the exceptionally high price. That’s an outlandish, baffling technique but worth appreciation from all the coffee fanatics who fancy their brew.
