The world's most expensive coffee



The cost of one cup of Kopi Luwak coffee at Australia's Heritage Tea Rooms is $41.67. Brewed from beans handpicked out of civet-cat droppings, it is reputedly the world's rarest and most expensive coffee.

I love a good cup of coffee, but somehow the idea of coffee that has come to my cup via feline droppings is a little on the unappetizing side. And I thought coffee with chicory was nasty...

Look up supertaster and you'll find out why I think coffee is the most %$@#& tasting liquid on the planet. Nothing you put in coffee can make the bitter taste go away.

I really enjoy a good cup of coffee, but $40+ per cup? Maybe I'll see if I can force feed our Maine Coon a handfull of beans. If it works out, I'll have a new supplemental income.

Yikes, I'm suddenly very glad I don't like coffee!

Wow, I wonder what that tastes like? I mean would I think it tastes good because I actually liked it or would my tastes buds be a tad biasedly swayed by the hefty $40+ price tag, you know?? LOLS. Although, I generally prefer green tea to anything.
