The World’s Most Expensive Coffee is From Beans Cycled Through an Indonesian animal’s Digestive System-Truth!

Summary of eRumor:

Kopi Luwak is a rare and gourmet coffee from Indonesia that is made from beans passed through the digestive system of animals.

The Truth:

Kopi Luwak does exist, is very expensive, and is made from coffee beans passed through the digestive system of an Indonesian animal, but it’s more like a cat than a monkey. According to a feature article by the Manila Coffee House, which sells the stuff, the people who harvest the digested beans don’t really have to pick through cat litter to get it. The animal processes the beans and excretes them whole, unscratched, and without dung.
