Black Ivory Coffee (Over $500 A Pound)
Made from Arabica beans by the Black Ivory Coffee Company in Thailand. Elephants consume the coffee beans and process them during digestion. Their stomach acid breaks down the bean proteins and provides a characteristic robust flavor. This coffee is rare, expensive and extracted from the elephants feces. At almost $50 a cup this makes it the most expensive coffee in the world.
Kopi Luwak (Over $160 A Pound)
It is produced from the coffee beans which have been digested by a certain Indonesian cat-like animal called “Palm Civet”. This is the reason kopi luwak is also called cat poop coffee. The feces of this cat will be collected, finished and sold as kopi luwak.
