What is the real cost of Kopi Luwak, the most expensive coffee in the world?
Luckily, Wildlife Alliance rangers found this civet before poachers sold it to coffee producers. Many other civets are not so lucky Kopi Luwakcoffee is made from digested coffee cherries in civets’ excrement. Producers justify the high price of the coffee by claiming the poo is rare & collected from the forest In reality, civets are live captured by poachers and sold to coffee “farms”
Poachers easily catch civets by setting hundreds of snares. As the civet struggles, the snare becomes tighter and tighter.
