#Science: Metabolic Fingerprint For Asian Palm Civet Poop #Coffee, 'Kopi Luwak'


Updated September 9, 2013 ● 588 views

Kopi Luwak is coffee made from berries extracted the feces of Asian palm civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus). It's often called the world's most expensive coffee. Even hotels in downtown Tokyo don't charge so much. The problem is that there is no standard methodology to know if you are getting actual cat poop coffee. As the business has grown, so has concern about fraud. What people with First World Problems worry about is if their cat poop coffee is the real deal.

I wonder what's the deal with this coffee. I've been hearing about this. I am good with my 3-in-1 coffee sachet from Vietnam!
