Civet Cat Bum Coffee

I’m listening to CBC Radio right now. They are talking about the most expensive coffee in the world. The coffee is called Kopi Luwak and goes for around $300 per pound. Apparently this coffee comes from Indonesia (Sumatra to be exact) and is also know as Civet cat coffee, because the Civet cat eats the coffee beans, digests them and out they come. They are then collected, washed and there you have it. The most expensive and rarest coffee in the world.
I don’t like coffee, though I would be very interested in what Civet Cat Bum coffee would taste like. Oh and I really enjoy the animated GIF on this page about the coffee.

  1. Wow. Next time I have an extra $300 lying around that I don’t want to spend on yarn or shoes, I’ll let you know.
