bucket list luwak coffee beans

Kopi Luwak is expensive coffee at $75 for 100 grams, is not something that people would spent on coffee. And at less than 250 kg of production annually, even with money you might not be able to get these expensive coffee beans.
Kopi is Malay for coffee and Luwak is the name for the Asian palm civet cat in Sumatra where the coffee comes from around the island of Java and Sulawesi.

And for those that are not in the know, the coffee actually comes from the dropping of this small marsupial (paradoxurus), that is the reason it is also known as civet cat coffee.

Yes, Asians are pretty amazing folks with Chinese paying thousands for bird's vomit call "bird nest" and now hundreds to buy coffee cat digested coffee.

These coffee bean cat climb the tress and eat only the ripest, reddest coffee cherries and when they excrete, it would be your kopi luwak. Somehow, the enzymes in the cat add some additional flavor to the coffee through fermentation.
