Can I get Kopi Luwak coffee in Bangkok

Jump to last reply

So you may be saying what is Kopi Luwak coffee? Well there is a marsupial in Indonesia called a Luwak which eats coffee cherries and then of course passes them as its a small animal and can't fully digest them. They are collected cleaned of course and processed like all coffee beans are. Supposedly the digestive enzymes give this coffee a flavor which is so special the cost for this coffee is up to $400.00 per lb. Yep, this is correct.

So then you may be asking why in the world would you want to try it??? Well I am a lover of good coffee so naturally I'm interested. I don't love it that much that I want to buy it by the lb. but a cupful to try would be fine. I've seen Andrew Zimmern drink it in Vietnam Nam on one of his Bizarre Foods shows so I am curious if I can get it in BKK. Thanks!
