Coffee is consumed and enjoyed in different forms throughout the globe, but did you know that some varieties could cost more than diamonds?
These are the world’s 2 most expensive coffees and you’ll be amazed to find out how they’re made!
Kopi Luwak or Civet coffee
Believe it or not, this coffee is made from the feces of the Civet cat.
The civet cats are fed coffee cherries, these coffee cherries ferment as they pass through the cat’s stomach. Their feces is then collected and processed to form the final product. You’d be surprised to know that these cats are believed to have a nose for the finest of beans, and only consume the best of the lot!
The end result, of course, is a batch of extremely fine and smooth coffee unlike any other coffee you have ever tasted before.
The name itself explains that this coffee ought to be an expensive one! This coffee is mainly produced in Surin, Thailand, and is considered one of the finest coffees in the world. As the name suggests this coffee is passed through the digestive tracts of elephants making these beans extremely flavourful and smooth.
Once deposited by the elephant, these beans go through a long process of picking, cleaning, drying, etc; to reach the final product.
On average 33kg’s of coffee cherries are required to make ONLY 1 kg Black Ivory coffee.
This surely explains the premium quality and high prices of this unique coffee!
