The true cost of the world's most expensive coffee
Civet coffee, or 'Kopi Luwak', as it's known in Indonesia, is one of the world's most expensive drinks, selling for up to $100 per cup. It's made from coffee beans, which have been partially digested ... and then excreted by small cat-like mammals known as civets. According to coffee connoisseurs, this unusual production method is what gives the coffee its uniquely smooth taste.In parts of South East Asia, civets are cruelly captured from the wild, using methods that include box traps and snares. Many are sold directly to commercial civet farm owners, while others await their fate in noisy, bustling, wildlife markets.Despite a long history of 'cage-free' civet coffee – a method believed to produce the most superior tasting civet coffee – evidence suggests that the number of civet farms has increased to meet the growing global demand.
