Kopi Luwak is a specialty coffee, collected and washed from the excrement of wild Asian Palm civet cats that eat coffee "cherries". This Indonesian phrase means "coffee" and the animal's local name in Sumatra, where the product originated. High demand has led to its "cultivation" in other countries, including Thailand and the Philippines (there also called Kape Alamid).
