Taking it to the Extreme of Kopi Luwak

To what lengths would a person go in the pursuit of some of the rarest coffee in the world? Would you climb a mountain, trudge through a rain forest, or shall we say… eat roasted coffee beans that have been Biologically preprocessed by a small Indonesian mammal?

Right about now, you are thinking option one and two don’t seem so unreasonable. But if you guessed option three, you would be talking about the rare and exotic Kopi Luwak coffee.

The Kopi Luwak, also known as the Asian Palm Civet (Paradoxus hermaphroditus) will selectively choose and consume coffee cherries as part of its diet. During its magical journey, the coffee cherry flesh is removed through digestion and the coffee beans are collected for processing (If that isn’t a Dirty Job candidate, I don’t know what is!).
