Your morning coffee may not taste the same after seeing this (10 photos)

Kopi Luwak or civet coffee, is coffee made from the beans of coffee berries which have been eaten by the Asian Palm Civet and other related civets, then passed through its digestive tract. A civet eats the berries for their fleshy pulp. In its stomach, proteolytic enzymes seep into the beans, making shorter peptides and more free amino acids. Passing through a civet’s intestines the beans are then defecated, having kept their shape. After gathering, thorough washing, sun drying, light roasting and brewing, these beans yield an aromatic coffee with much less bitterness, widely noted as the most expensive coffee in the world.

    Actually it's because the civet only easts the good berries and not the bad ones, cos they can smell something.

    Haven't you ever seen "The Bucket List?" They had lots of good jokes about this in that movie. Worth a watch if you don't mind a good movie.

    No worries about 'accidentally' drinking this sort of coffee. The beans are very expensive. If you are a coffee drinker and this grosses you out. Relax. Hmmm, maybe I should have told my dinner party where the beans came from before I served them this coffee.

    This is only one very obscure method of coffee production. Odds are you've never had is, considering that the beans usually cost nearly $100/pound roasted.

    I am from Indonesia where this Luwak coffee is from. If you like coffee and never taste this coffee, then you miss the best taste coffee in the world. No, it's not just because I'm indonesian, a lot of people around the world agree that this coffee is the best coffee they have drink.
