First off-- I have never tried this coffee and have no plans to. Ever. It sells for about three hundred dollars a pound, which in itself is enough to keep my from sampling.. However, if you are not familiar with this "most expensive" coffee in the world, let me fill you in.
These beans grow in Sumatra, Java, Bali---they are called coffee berries. Apparently they are quite common there, as they are the food of choice for the Asian Palm Civet (pic below)...a little rat-looking thing that roams these areas. So, you have coffee berries and you have little rat animals that like to eat them. And from THAT --- comes the Kopi Luwak coffee. Yep, you guessed it, the little rats eat the beans and then they "process" them, leaving their "deposits" in their wake. And people actually go around behind them, pick this (literal) crap up --- and process it into coffee! Ummm...no thank you. Seriously, NO THANK YOU.
I'll stick to my Folgers.
