Luwak Coffee (Indonesia) – $160/lb.


What makes Luwak Coffee from Indonesia so valuable are the processes of selection and digestion. Yes, you heard me correctly, digestion. Kopi Luwak coffee, often referred to as civet coffee, undergoes fermentation inside of an animal. The civet, to be specific. The civet consumes the coffee cherries, leaving the coffee beans to be collected later from the animal’s feces. The civet emits enzymes during the digestion process that alter the taste of the product, as one might expect. This taste, however, is coveted worldwide, to the point where consumers are willing to pay $160 per pound of Luwak Coffee.
