Where to get the most expensive coffee in the world?
Correct Answer: Bali
A gorgeous Indonesian island in Southeast Asia called Bali serves a special kind of coffee called kopi luwak. A single cup can vary in price between $35 to $100 causing Kopi Luwak to be considered the most expensive coffee globally.
Kopi Luwak is made from coffee cherries that is eaten, digested, and defecated by the Asian palm civet. The Asian palm civet is a small mammal similar to a cross between a cat and a raccoon. After defecated the eaten coffee beans, the locals will collect the beans and have them cleaned and processed. Westerners call the coffee "cat poops coffee."
When the Asian palm civet digests the coffee beans, it changes the proteins' structure in the coffee beans, removing any acidity. This process results in a smoother flavor for the cup of coffee. Would you consider trying a cup of Kopi Luwak?
