Good to the Last Dropping!



Are you a coffee connoisseur? If so, Kopi Luwak may be the coffee for you. It is the most expensive coffee in the world.

Kopi Luwak, also called Civet coffee, is made from coffee berries that have been eaten by and passed through the digestive track of the Asian Palm Civet, a type of wild cat. The Civets eat the berries but the beans pass through their system undigested. This takes place in the Philippines. The coffee is sold for between $120 and $600 per pound. There is also a similar coffee, called weasel coffee, produced in Vietnam.

I’m not much of a coffee drinker anyway and I’m pretty sure that I don’t want to eat OR drink anything that has been crapped out by a cat. Thanks, I think I’ll stick with Folgers or just drive through Starbucks for my non-cat-digested brand.

  2. Ummm…A cat crapping out a bean is just a LITTLE different than honey from a bee. Sorry but I think you are vastly outnumbered on this one.

  3. All scientific analysis confirm that Kopi Luwak is not dangerous for health. Dr. Marcone said that as a scientist, he doubted about the safety of a product which has been in contact with excrement but his final tests show that due to the thorough washing process the quantity of pathogen organisms in the beans is insignificant. Whatever the washing process misses the roasting and brewing process will make up for.
