There is always a lot of charm attached to the most expensive item in the world, no matter what category it belongs to, not to forget to mention the status symbol. However, in this case, I am totally willing to pass up the offer to taste the most expensive coffee in the world, no matter what its enthusiasts have to say about its flavor and aroma- it is just to gross for my sensibilities!
Lopi Luwak, which comes from Indonesia is considered the most expensive coffee in the world. And no wonder this is the case, considering the process it undergoes. The coffee berries are actually eaten by the Asian palm Civet, and the beans are passed through their digestive tract and defecated. These are then gathered, washed, sun dried, roasted lightly and then brewed. The coffee made from this is considered highly aromatic and free from bitterness.
