Dude, Kopi Coffee Is The $#!*

Literally. The Kopi luwak bean makes a rare and expensive coffee. From what I understand the Kopi luwak is a regular coffee bean that gains a cooler status by being eaten, digested, and excreted by the cat-like Asian Palm Civet. The beans are then harvested from the cats feces & steeped to make the pricey coffee.

Those who have tasted the brew would say things like "This is the kind of coffee you renounce your religion and sell your child for". An easily bought individual, seeing as you can come across fake Kopi luwak coffee and not know the difference between the two. This is Coffee's answer to the Kobe Beef. Its $1000 dollars a kilo, either your ballin' like Oprah, or you need to get over yourself.
