Kopi Luwak – aka Cat Poo Coffee

Kopi Luwak was once thought of as an urban legend. In 2007, it was featured in The Bucket List, as one of the important things to do/drink before you die. Now, popularly known as the most expensive coffee in the world, it has certainly become a talking piece among coffee drinkers. Having seen prices on the internet ranging from $195 to $600 per pound, you’ll be surprised to know how these coffee beans are “made”. Watch as I learn and take my first taste in this video:

I can’t decide for you whether it’s worth the price or not, but for me, it was certainly worth trying at least once. Check out Indo Civet Coffee, owned by a friend of my friend Le. They’re among the cheapest sellers of this special coffee, and we thought it was notably delicious.

**Update: Just got word that Sudibyo Pradono of Indo Civet Coffee is going to give samples to 5 lucky readers! Just leave a comment on this post by 11am on Thurs, April 29th. Winners will be chosen randomly. Shipping to the US only.
