World's Most Expensive Coffee

Guess how much does the most expensive coffee in the world costs? Even more surprising is the fact that you are drinking something excreted by an animal. We are talking about Kopi Luwak or Civet Coffee. They are coffee beans that are of coffee berries that are eaten and then excreted by the Asian palm civet.

  • It is said that the civet chooses the best coffee berries to eat. (i.e you are getting the best)
  • Price can reach $US 700 per kilogram
  • Fraud is very prevalent in this industry
  • In the coffee industry, Kopi Luwak is considered extremely overpriced, a gimmick and a novelty
  • Most customers are Asian, from Japan, South Korea and Taiwan

Personally I have tried this coffee before when my mum went to Indonesia and bought some back. How does it taste? Yuck. My local 3-in-1 coffee tastes better. I agree with the experts. They are truly a marketing gimmick.
