Civet coffee, is coffee that includes part-digested coffee cherries eaten and defecated by the Asian palm civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus).

Producers of the coffee beans argue that the process may improve coffee through two mechanisms, selection and digestion. Selection occurs if the civets choose to eat cherries. Digestive mechanisms may improve the flavor profile of the coffee beans that have been eaten. The civet eats the cherries for the fleshy pulp, then in the digestive tract, fermentation occurs. The civet’s protease enzymes seep into the beans, making shorter peptides and more free amino acids. Passing through a civet’s intestines the cherries are then defecated with other fecal matter and collected.

Although kopi luwak is a form of processing rather than a variety of coffee, it has been called one of the most expensive coffees in the world, with retail prices reaching €550 / US$700 per kilogram. The price of farmed (considered low-grade by connoisseurs) kopi luwak in large Indonesian supermarkets is from US$100 per kilogram (five times the price of a high quality local arabica coffee).

貓屎咖啡,是由印尼椰子狸(一種麝香貓)的糞便作為原料所生產,故叫“貓屎咖啡”。咖啡豆經過椰子狸食用並在其胃裡完成發酵後,破壞蛋白質,產生短肽和更多的自由氨基酸,咖啡的苦澀味會降低,再排出來的糞便便是主要原料,由於咖啡豆不能被消化,會被排泄出來,經過清洗、烘培後就成了麝香貓咖啡。咖啡評論家克里斯魯賓說,“酒香是如此的豐富與強烈,咖啡又是令人難以置信的濃郁,幾乎像是糖漿一樣。它的厚度和巧克力的口感,並長時間地在舌頭上徘徊,純淨的回味。” 貓屎咖啡乃全球最昂貴的咖啡之一,1公斤原物料生豆達400美元,銷售商品每公斤達1000美元,根據英國新聞BBC採訪報導,撿拾野生麝香貓糞便製作的咖啡在印度尼西亞的年產量僅500公斤。
