How To Make The World's Most Expensive Cup Of Coffee

Thailand's new Black Ivory Coffee brew costs $50 per serving. The process is, um, fascinating.posted about 5 hours ago



First, pick the beans.

A member of the Lisu hill tribe picks Thai arabica coffee beans at the Thai High coffee farm in Phrao.

Then mix them with fruit and rice.

About 10,000 beans produce 1 kilogram of Black Ivory Coffee — 33 kilograms produce one kilo of the beverage.

The cost per serving ends up being $50, making it the world's new most expensive brew.

Some will pay the price you can bet on that!!

Whatever the price I'm really not sure I would drink that coffee;  the whole process is pretty  strange in my opinion....

Hmmmm....For some reason does not sounds appealing to me, as appealing as an elephant on caffeine!!

They are on caffeine!

If you’re worried you might accidentally be drinking coffee made from elephant dung at your local coffee shop, don’t be. The Black Ivory blend is in very short supply, with only around 50 kilograms of the stuff available for purchase at the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation, in Thailand. Not to mention the crazy price of $1,100 per kilo ($50 per cup) only makes it a treat for fine coffee lovers with very deep pockets. Why so expensive, you ask? Well, there are multiple reasons for the steep price. One, raising elephants in a natural reserve isn’t cheap, and 8% of the proceeds from the sales of Black Ivory coffee go to olden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation. Then, while they might be good at pooping out delicious coffee, elephants aren’t very efficient. The elephants are fed only Thai Arabica coffee beans grown at an altitude of around 5,000 feet, but they need to eat more than 72 pounds of coffee cherries to produce 2.2 pounds of coffee beans. No one can confirmed it yet, but I bet those elephants get a caffeine buzz after every meal.

That's roughly a 1 cup  in every 33 cups return for your elephant coffee digester.
