Is Kopi Luwak safe to drink? While indeed the beans collected from the excrement show higher levels of contaminations, the processed beans are quite safe to drink with no contamination from e. coli or other bacteria
Kopi Luwak coffee is expensive because of a combination of high demand and the limited quantities of Kopi Luwak that the civets can produce naturally.
So straight away, Kopi Luwak contains only the highest quality coffee cherries. In addition to helping select the best cherries, the flavor of the coffee is improved further by passing through the civet's digestive system. A special enzymatic process occurs in the civets' stomachs where acids interact with the beans.
Kopi luwak is made from coffee beans plucked from civets' feces. This is bad news for civets. It's the world's most expensive coffee, and it's made from poop. Or rather, it's made from coffee beans that are partially digested and then pooped out by the civet, a catlike creature
