most of us rely on coffee to get our internal engines going & we’re accustomed to grabbing coffee from our corner store or the well-known Starbucks. although there are many coffee shops & coffee brands on the market these days, there is nothing out there that compares to what you’re about to read & maybe even try.
this is coffee taken to the rank of luxury to be enjoyed only by those that are worth it. here’s…
The World’s Most Expensive Coffee is: Kopi Luwak from Indonesia & a cup goes for $50-90.
kopi is the Indonesian word that stands for coffee. luwak is the local name for this animal:
I present you: the World’s Most Expensive Barista – the Luwak or Paradoxurus (which is the official name).
if you haven’t figured it out by now, the coffee is the result of this furry guy’s digestive system. the Luwak’s are known for eating raw coffee beans, the civet digests the soft part of the coffee fruit, yet does not digest the inner beans (the actual coffee beans) & excretes them. through this process the enzymes remove the bitter taste & add an unique flavor to the beans. the locals collect them & then they are sold.
luwak is eating coffee cherries
what the coffee beans look life before entering the cleaning & roasting process
& this is the end product
because of the rarity of process & the distinct flavor, these beans cost as much as $1000 a pound & can vary from $50-90 per cup.
to taste such an exquisite beverage an appointment is necessary with one of the few establishments that carry such an exotic blend.
I just can say: I’m so proud to be Indonesian who also coffee lover! 🙂
