The coffee, which costs between £200 and £300 per pound, is so expensive because of its scarcity, as only 500kgs of the beans are produced in its home of Indonesia each year.

Locals pick the ‘coffee beans’ from the faeces of Asian civet cats, which eat the ripe coffee berries as part of their diet.

Once they are cleaned they are roasted. The coffee they produce is described as filled with a deep, mellow flavour, not acidic, with a ‘unique, soft, sweet taste’.
