The Most Expensive Coffee in The World

Are you a fan of coffee? Have you ever heard Luwak Coffee or Civet Coffee? Have you ever taste it?

Luwak Coffee or Civet Coffee  is a coffee which is taken from the poo of the Civet. People say that the taste is different and delicious. In time, more people in the world know about this coffee and it’s known as the most expensive coffee in the world which  cost USD 100 per 450 gr.

Who will know that the coffee of the poor people becomes the most delightful coffee in the world? In the 18th centuries when Indonesia was colonized by Dutch,  The Dutch built some plantation for their colonies especially in Java island and Sumatra island. One of them was the coffee beans  from Yaman. In the era of Cultuurstelsel (1830-1870) the Dutch prohibited the plantation workers to consumed the coffee.  One day, the workers  saw a civet whose consumed coffee fruits and their poo was a coffee beans. The workers made it a coffee and it’s so delicious. The news was spreading across the world and then this coffee become something rare and that is  why this coffee is so expensive.[aci].

Red Chili Chocolate

Red Chili Chocolate of Monggo.

What do you  think about this? Hot chocolate? LOL. Believe me , this chocolate is really hot. The word “of eruption” in the picture is serious. If you only eat one tablet, it’s nothing. But if you eat more than 3 tablets, your tongue will feel hot, and this hot is going to your throat and stomach. Ingredient which make it hot and warm is not only a chili but also a clove. The combination of dark chocolate with chili and clove is perfect. I just like this taste of chocolate.  This chocolate is hotter than other chocolate which has chili taste.  I ever tried another brand which not made in Indonesia, it’s not hot.

The first time I ate Monggo chocolate was when I went to a supermarket and met a sales promotion girl of Monggo. I tried it and finally bought it, after I asked some questions to her. We had little interview, yeah. This Monggo was made in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Monggo used recycled paper to wrap the chocolate so, this company is green. And this is made by Belgian chocolatier. You can read more story of Monggo chocolate in here http://chocolatemonggo.com/en/content/our-story.

The yellow one inside the chocolate is chili rice which make the chocolate's taste hot.

So when you have a vacation in Indonesia, specially in Yogyakarta, don’t forget to try it. I recommend you  red chili chocolate for an exotic taste 🙂 [cel]
