I have started the year with the spirit of trying new things. I really put that ethos to the test in Bali at the Satria Coffee Plantation. There, they have the most expensive coffee in the world for a modest €3! So far so good I hear you say.
Well, it’s no ordinary coffee. It is the Kopi Luwak Coffee.
The coffee is produced from coffee beans which have been digested by the civet cat and pooped out! I would describe the civet cat as a cross between a house cat and a racoon. A very cute little guy with incredibly pricey poo!
The poo of the cat is collected, processed and roasted, before it is served up as a steaming cup of coffee!
So when faced with a cup of the most expensive coffee in the world, it really would seem silly not to try it! Trying to cast away all your thought of cat poo when smelling in the coffee aroma is certainly a trick of the senses. Your nose is saying yes, while your head is hoping you wont gag and make a show of yourself!
Here’s how we got on!
