Most expensive coffee

The world's most expensive coffee is the Kope Luwak coffee or (Civet Coffee). Recently, on ABC's NEWS money section, the price quoted for a cup of Kope Luwak coffee was $10 (2007). It's expensive because of limited supply primarily due to symbiotic nature of its manufacturing process. I think yo u can call it symbiotic because you need a palm civet (found in Southeast Asian country) to finish off the coffee beans. On , they say that the palm civet just happens to like to ingest the ripest and reddest coffee beans, which also happen to be the ones best for brewing. Something happens to the beans in the journey through the cat's intestines that gives it a flavor that is celebrated by coffee drinkers.

You missed a citation. Kope luwak was Edward Perriman Cole's (played by Jack Nicholson) favorite coffee in THE BUCKET LIST (2007) -- until Carter (played by Morgan Freeman) told him where it came from.
