Expensive caffeine: Coffee made from animal dung goes for £50 a cup
Peter Jones, a department store in Sloane Square, is selling a gourmet coffee blend made from animal dung and selling it at £50 a cup; that's almost $100! Caffe Raro, which is thought to be the most expensive coffee in the world, is a made from a blend of Jamaican Blue Mountain and Kopi Luwak beans. The Kopi Luwak beans are eaten by the Asian palm civet, and once passed through their system, collected and sold for a little under $650 per kilogram. Don't worry -- they're washed before they are roasted.
$100 may seem like a lot to spend on a good cup of java -- especially when it's made from animal dung -- but then again, if you live in Europe, it's cheaper than a ticket to track down the specialty in Indonesia.
