This unique coffee called Kopi Luwak is originally from Sumatra, an Indonesian island and is produced by the Paradoxurus, which is from the civet family which looks like a cross between a mongoose and a cat. 
It so happens that  the Paradoxurus swallows the coffee cherries, which then enter its digestive system but are excreted in an intact form.  These beans are then ‘hand picked’, cleaned and finally they are roasted.    Then these beans are used to produce the most exotic and expensive Kopi Lowak that normally would cost you around $90!
