The Civet:The Maker of Most Expensive Coffee

An Animal That Poops Gourmet Coffee:

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.

That Ain't Peanuts and Nougat.
