The first trip to Jakarta #1 Kopi Luwak

In one of my favorite Japanese movies, "Kamome Syokudo", the owner of a cafe gives a charm to make good coffee, saying "Kopi Luwak".
I am not a coffee drinker so didn't pay much attention to it.
But I found the special one in Jakarta.

Have you ever heard of it?
Kopi means coffee and Luwak is an animal who eats coffee beans.
Once coffee berries go into their stomachs, they are fermented and only beans are evacuated.
Then farmers pick and roast the beans!  That's why it is said to be the most expensive coffee in the world!

How could we ruin this opportunity? We tried a cup of 100% Kopi Luwak!

Believe it or not, a cup of coffee costs about 1000 JPY (Almost 10 USD!)
In order to see the difference, we had another cup of coffee which only included 5% of Kopi Luwak coffee.
It was so plain to see the difference between the two tastes!

A little luwak on the cup.

If you have a chance to go to Indonesia, please give it a try!
