  4. 5. The most expensive coffee in the world <ul><li>. CoffeeWith a price tag of £150-800/Kg ($225-1200 USD) civet coffee certainly deserves the title of ‘the world’s most expensive cuppa’.

  6. 7. The Fact: The most expensive coffee in the world comes from civet poop <ul><li>The coffee made from these beans has been described as having aromas of ‘fermented plum and dark chocolate with hazelnuts’.
