The most expensive coffee

The most expensive coffee in the world is Kopi Luwak (aka Civet Coffee). Not only the most expensive, but it also low in production. This is caused by the dependence of the coffee production process, in a kind of civet called latin  “Paradoxurus hermaphroditus”.  In Indonesia – the place where the coffee is  the most widely produced  – this civet known as Luwak. And the word Kopi itself is Indonesian for coffee. So from here you would already know why it is named as Kopi Luwak.
But maybe you are wondering, why the production process of the most expensive coffee in the world  must rely on civet?
This is because coffee beans in the manufacture of Kopi Luwak should be eaten first by the civet. In the stomach of the civet, coffee beans experienced a series of natural chemical process that involves specific enzymes, making shorter peptides and more free amino acids. After exiting the ferret stomach, the beans are processed further to produce an aromatic coffee with much less bitterness.
"Wait a minute, so actually we drink a civet droppings?"
Kopi Luwak Process

The answer is "yes" and "no". "Yes" because the coffee beans out of the civet stomach. And "no" because the form of coffee beans remains intact. Moreover, in the processing of this beans of the most expensive coffee in the world is still undergoing a process of cleaning such as washing, drying, roasting and others.
