    Most Expensive Coffee In The World

    You know which is the most expensive coffee in the world?

    I heard it comes from Islands of Indonesia , specifically Sumatra, from the droppings of an animal called Paradoxurus which eats red, ripe coffee cherry and digests it in its tummy then this coffee is processed from what comes out!!

    Is it really true? Have you tasted the coffee?

    Seriously... there must be literally 100 postings out Kopi Luwak on this site alone. Living in Indonesia, having access to plentiful supplies of Kopi Luak and roasting quite a bit of the stuff has convinced me that really it is nothing special- for sure it is neither as rare as people are lead to believe nor as good. There are plenty of small hold arabicas from specic high altitude, untouched locations around th islands of Sumatra, Java, Flores, Irian, West Timor and Sulawesi that are ar superior, far more unique in the cup. Spin is, I am afraid, spin. I would say one thing I have learnt about Kopi Luwak is not only unsuspecting consumers but also some coffee proffesionals are sucked into the myth of this coffee

    Very interesting insight. I have had 1 cup and thought maybe I just wasn't getting it because it didn't taste as good as other coffees I have had.

    Okay, so here's the real paradoxurus,
    more commonly known as a civet cat:

    Do all Kopi Luwak taste the same?
    Not at all! Is very important to know from which area the Kopi Luwak comes from. Luwaks eat the coffee from the plantations near their habitats. So you can find Robusta Kopi Luwak or Arabica Kopi Luwak. The best coffee will be the one collected from the good quality Arabica coffee plantations. Let’s say that Sumatran Kopi Luwak is different than the Balinese one because the Arabica beans coffee from where they are made, also taste different.

    A kopi Luwak from arabica beans from Kintamani, Bali taste really good!
    I want to warn you that between 70% and 80% of Kopi Luwak or Civet Coffee which is available at coffee stores and Internet is not 100% Kopi Luwak and it sometimes does not contain anything of the genuine coffee, especially when it is advertised with the following slogan: “This coffee is so good that even the Luwak would like to try it”.

    Oh. It is true. It is called Kopi Luwah. The annual output just about 230 kilo gram. The price of this coffee comes to US $1000 per kilo gram.

    I sell it, I drink it, I love it, but even I tell folks Kopi Luwak is 80% great story and 20% great coffee. and that is why I sell it for $55 a quarter pound. I am convinced that people buy it and never drink it. they just show it to their friends.

    Spend the $$ sometime on a bag of Esmeralda or El Soccoro. At least you can brag to your coffee friends with your head held high.
    (I do not sell these anymore, so this is not an advertisement for my company )

    It is also a "farmed" product, with the animals often (or always?) kept in confined cages and fed the coffee cherries. The fact that it is even allowed to be imported into this country bewilders me- not because of the treatment of the animals or their health, but for the nature of the product. In my opinion, George Carlin said it best: "Put two things together that haven't been put together before, and some schmuck is going to buy it." (nothing personal, folks). For less than half its cost you could be drinking you choice of any of the finest coffees in the world. This isn't one of them.

    If you are interested in some Alsatian Arabica, I will feed some to him and have it ready for shipping sometime tomorrow morning depending on how much you need:

    Kopi really is not that special, if you find the right person with enough money and have a great story you can sell it for anything
