New Delhi: India is now the producer of the most expensive coffee in the world. The coffee is called Civet coffee or Luwark coffee. It is manufactured in Coorg, a small district in Karnataka. It is produced from the coffee beans digested by civet cat. The feces of this cat are collected, processed and sold. Civet cat eats flesh of the coffee cherries and not the bean. Natural enzymes in civet's stomach enhances the bean flavor and that's why this coffee is unique. It is sold for Rs 20,000-25,000/kg and is widely consumed in Gulf nations and Europe. “Initially, 20 kg of civet coffee was produced. After establishing the start-up firm, 60 kg was produced in 2015-16 and 200 kg last year. We hope half a ton production from the new crop to be harvested from October," said Narendra Hebbar, one of the founders of the Civet coffee.
