There are legends surrounding Kopi Luwak price. Due to its unique method of collecting the beans, there isn’t much Kopi Luwak produced in the world.
This “harvesting” practice has grown to the point that the beans are now available for sale, and they are now the world’s priciest specialty coffee.
Thanks to the rarity of this exotic species of coffee, the price is quite outrageous. If you can find a vendor, the current kopi luwak price should be at least $300 per pound.
Some more adventurous coffee houses are selling it by the cup, but you won’t likely find it at your local coffee shop just yet.
It can fetch close to US$100 for a single brewed cup in some parts of the world. Coffee connoisseur Chris Rubin of Cafe Olé magazine, reviews what makes kopi luwak worth the exorbitant price:
The aroma is rich and strong, and the coffee is incredibly full bodied, almost syrupy. It’s thick with a hint of chocolate, and lingers on the tongue with a long, clean aftertaste. It’s definitely one of the most interesting and unusual cups I’ve ever had.
Sure the price may be exorbitant to most coffee enthusiasts, but what customers actually paying is the experience of enjoying such an unusual, exotic, and rare delicacy.
