Civet

Civets eat coffee cherries, digest the pulp and pass the beans through their digestive systems. Since civets are thought to choose only the best, ripest cherries and because their digestive acids are thought to add flavor, this coffee is considered a delicacy. It’s the world’s most expensive coffee. Sf Gate has more information.
