Where do you think the most expensive coffee in the world come from?

Me and my fellow Lawrence Ferber from Passport Magz had a rare experience to try tasting the Kopi Luwak (civet coffee), here in Bali, Indonesia.

One cup of these kind of coffee can cost you up to $50 and $600 will be added to your bills if you grab one pound. But here, in the land of paradise, where you can get (almost) everything in its lower price, you can get it only with one piece of Lincoln! 

The coffee girls

This coffee is named after a weasel-like animal, civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus).

I  want to share you later why, but this coffee taste less bitter and a bit caramel-ish that makes me crazy about.

My guide took a video when I tasted it. Tab tab tab.

Do you hear my friend Lawrence saying "Not so poopy"?
I don't want to make you feel disgusted, but this coffee indeed a result of defecation of the civet.

After washed, sun-dried, roasted, and brewed, this coffee tastes better than any coffee I've ever tasted before. I'm not a big fan of coffee, but i can say I really like this one. You should try it, either buying 50 bucks a cup or return-ticket to Bali and get it for 5. Your choice, my dear, your choice. But like any other pocket breaker, this coffee has counterfeits. So, better buy this here. It's like you better buy LV or Chanel in its boutique, not on Ebay or any other Chinese online shop instead.

So, you wanna add this to 1000 things you should try before you die?

Signorefandi, dare to try the-most things in the world...
