Kopi luwak or civet coffee is one of the world’s most expensive and low-production varieties of coffee.it is made with beans excreted by Civet cats. The undigested beans that the cat excretes are collected,washed and processed before being turned into a brew.
It is not that easily available everywhere as its production is low. Kopi luwak is produced mainly in Indonesian,India, Philippines and Vietnam,also this most expensive coffee is available with a price around $160 per pound.coffee is sold mainly in the United States and Japan.
The exorbitant price is perhaps due to its rarity as also the exotica surrounding the naturally processed coffee beans that are picked up and are absolutely odour free. They are washed in water and kept in it for a day, then dried and pounded to get the husk off and finally roasted. The civet cat helps eliminate a few manual processes and the flavour is more subtle than regular coffee.
These coffee beans are organic as no pesticides are used, because the civet cats pick only the best of the lot. The coffee is said to have strong taste and an even stronger aroma. Some even say it is aphrodisiac
