Why Coffee from Cat Poo?
The story goes this way, when the Dutch were ruling Indonesia they setup lots of coffee plantations. However the farmers and people who worked at the plantations would never be allowed to taste and drink the coffee. One of the farmers had collected beans from the poo and magicially it tasted better than what the plantations were producing.
Civet commonly found have the appetite for finding the ripest of coffee berries. The coffee beans remain undigested and a unique fermentation adds to the taste.
Most Expensive Coffee
To have a controlled environment where the cat can feed on berries then poop. Collecting the poop is done by the famers. Cleaning, roasting and powdering is all manual labour. The uncommon and lengthy method of producing leads to smaller quantities while coffee is top 2 most consumed beverage.
A serving costs roughly about IDR 50000 translates to Rs. 245. A filter coffee in South India costs about Rs. 20. Beats the likes of artisanal coffee shops like Blue Bottle Coffee.
