Definition: Kopi Luwak is so unusual that many people think it's a myth. On the island of Sumatra, a small animal eats the coffee fruits and the seeds (beans) pass through its digestive system and excreted. The beans are collected from the jungle floor and processed as normal coffee. The taste is supposedly much richer than typical coffee, with an almost chocolate undertone.
