Coffee enthusiasts all over the world have been inventing and reinventing coffee constantly. From the simple drip or regular brewed coffee, we now enjoy several new flavors that appeal to our varied tastes.
Baristas today add chocolate, peppermint, and other spices to this beverage to come up with a delicious, perfect blend.
Of course, the price of each drink differs because of it.
The question is: How much are you willing to spend for a great-tasting, flavorful, aromatic cup of coffee?
Kopi luwak otherwise called cat poop coffee or civet cat coffee is the most expensive coffee to date, and it’s because of the extraordinary method the farmers use to yield its beans.
Kopi luwak is made from a particular kind of wild, red, coffee bean that had been eaten and defecated by a cat-like animal called Asian Palm Civet or civet cat.
The berries, which these animals eat, are native to Indonesia and the Philippines.
The weasel-like creature can’t digest the seeds of the berries.
Hence, they come out as poop.
Apparently, the seeds undergo a natural fermentation process inside the civet’s digestive tract, and that gives the beans their unique flavor.
The coffee farmers would then gather these droppings and wash them thoroughly.
The beans are left out to dry under the sun afterwards.
Once they’ve been sun dried, the beans can finally be roasted.
The brew, coffee drinkers say, tastes like caramel and chocolate. And some people attest that it is the “Caviar of coffee.”
So, how much does this coffee costs?
In the United States, the price of Kopi luwak is between $100 and $600 per pound. Coffee shops in America as well as in Japan sell them for approximately $30 per cup. In 2008, a department store in London began offering Caffe Raro—a blend of Blue Mountain and Kopi luwak—for $99 a cup.
