kopi luwak

One day, a coffee farmer was going to a coffee plantation that was bearing lots of fruit. Along his journey, he found scattered animal dung filled with grain. He was curious, what seed is it? Upon closer inspection, it turned out that it was a coffee bean whose skin had not yet been peeled off. The coffee beans from the dirt were brought home and every time he found dirt like that, he took it home until he finally collected as much as half a coconut shell. Then the coffee is washed repeatedly, dried in the sun to dry, processed to create coffee powder but the color is not as black as the coffee he usually makes. After drinking, the taste is incomparable.

The coffee fruit obtained from the feces turned out to be from the feces of a civet or Luwak (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus) so they called it civet coffee (Kopi Luwak). This coffee bean is fermented as it passes through the intestines of the civet so that the color is slightly faded, it is believed to treat blood sugar and increase the stamina of a man's virility. Luwak coffee is produced on the islands of Bali, Java, Sumatra, Sulawesi, and in East Timor.

Luwak coffee is one of the most expensive coffees in the world, exported to Japan, Korea, USA, Europe with retail prices reaching USD 100 per kilogram for cultivation and USD 1,300 per kilogram for beans collected from nature. But Bali's Luwak Coffee can't be exported because the amount is still limited only for own consumption
