Kopi Luwak (Indonesia)
Hailed as the most fragrant and tastiest coffee in the world, Kopi Luwak is farmed in Indonesia. However, due to the unusual processing of the coffee beans, the supply level of this coffee is not even close to Robusta or Arabica, two coffee varieties that are widely exported in several regions in Asia.
Kopi Luwak is processed not by machines, but by the digestive tract of a gentle, nocturnal animal called the Asian palm civet. Asian palm civets are naturally drawn to rope coffee fruit, and they ingest the fruit.
The seeds (or the beans, of course) are excreted without being digested. It is said that the chemical properties of the Asian palm civet’s digestive tract adds properties to the coffee beans that makes them tastier and richer for human consumption.
