The most expensive coffee in the world also happens to be one of the strangest. Developed by Canadian entrepreneur Blake Dinkin, Black Ivory Coffee is made by feeding coffee seeds — often called coffee cherries — to elephants, then collecting the beans from the animal's dung before they're cleaned and processed. The resulting coffee is said to be mellow and a bit nutty thanks fermentation in the digestive system, and sells for a whopping $120 for just over an ounce, about four to five espresso-sized servings. A pound of the stuff would set you back nearly $2,000.
LACREMA'S coffees are much better and a whole lot less expensive. Our coffees have a delicious coffee aroma and have never been smothered in animal dung.
