$600 Coffee

This coffee is a Philippines product but produce at East Java,Indonesia...the production was so unique it cost you $600 per pound and it only can produced a limited supply so its a first come first serve....just for your information the picture are not mine.....i just find it interesting to share the unique production of this coffee....

so here i go....

Say Hello to the Civet: The Maker of $600 Coffee
Yes, it's true -- this mammal, native to Africa and Asia, is responsible for pooping out the world's most expensive coffee, called Kopi Luwak. Civets are fed coffee cherries, and during digestion the animal's enzymes mix with the coffee beans before they, ahem, pass through, giving the beans a unique, bitter taste. See how it all happens...





The Cherries Are Chosen
A farmer in East Java, Indonesia , picks coffee cherries to feed the civets. 


A Whole Team at Work: Hand-Picking the Cherries 





The Civet Approaches.. .  

 
 
Gets Ready to Dig In...



 And Is Joined by Friends for Dinner .........


 

Gathering the Dung With Gloves...
In East Java , workers use gloves to clear the results of the feast.


 

That Ain't Peanuts and Nougat. Civet poop before it's turned into the coffee.


 
 Separating It and Washing It Off 
 



Another Step in Production  


A worker displays the distinct, cleaned-off beans.  
 
 
 
And Wala....The Very Expensive End Result
Pictured: Coffee Alamid, one Philippine brand. Because a very limited supply is produced each year, civet coffee can cost up to $600 per pound.
 


So any of you dare to try it I'm not sure whether its available here....but if your have friends in Philippines...may be you can ask then to look for it

Just for the information of everyone The Philippines has its own production of the Civet Coffee (if that what you call it) but here in the Philippines it's called Alamid Coffee which we have our own production of it we don't import it from East Java, Indonesia. The Alamid Coffee is exclusively produce here in the Philippines. Another thing is that if you say this is yuck and it's costly, think again because this coffee bean is washed, dried, and cooked before it is processed to become a coffee. This is costly because of the process that it undergoes. Coffee beans are not digested by the Civet/weasel/alamid that's why it's still whole the only thing that make it different from other coffee is the aroma and the process of producing it. Now if think this is yuckie, think again!

yeah, damn expensive.
when we were in Bali, we chanced upon a place that sells various types of coffee beans.
one can sample the kopi luwak for an astounding RM30+ per small cup!
