At some point long ago, a man came up with the strange idea of selecting coffee beans from the feces of the wildcat and then cleaning and roasting them. What emerged is the now world famous and popular LUWAK COFFEE (or as the Balinese say: KOPI LUWAK).
The type of bean used for this coffee has a very hard shell which can not be opened in a conventional way by simple means. Only through a special enzyme in the digestive tract of the wild cat, the shell is so soft that it can then be easily removed. The cat eats the coffee beans and excretes them over the droppings again. In the drying process, the feces of the cat are then separated from the coffee beans and removed.
