Dubai cafe serves world's most expensive coffee
Icons Coffee Couture now stocks Kopi Luwak, the world's most expensive
Dubai's Souk Al Bahar-based coffee shop Icons Coffee Couture is now serving the world’s most expensive coffee called Kopi Luwak - an aromatic civet coffee.
The brand's founder Elena Weber said: "We are extremely pleased to introduce the wild sourced and hand roasted Kopi Luwak to Icons Coffee Couture.
"It is an exclusive coffee experience; with the coffee being prepared in front of the eyes of the customers in a classic brewing ceremony."
Kopi Luwak coffee comes from the Indonesian island of Sumatra, and is not a mass-produced kind of coffee.
According to Weber, the coffee in Icons is carefully selected from the Asian Civet cat, a special Viverridae specie, which only eats the fruit pulp of the best and ripest coffee berries. The enzymatic action involved in this fermentation process produced the beans for world’s rarest coffee.
Kopi Luwak is priced at AED 180 (US $49) per Coffee Siphon (2 cups).
