A rare opportunity for coffee connoisseurs in Niagara.
The Irresistible Bean on St. Paul Street in St. Catharines has brought in a small amount of Kopi Luwak Coffee to brew Thursday.
The coffee is one of the most expensive in the world and renowned for it's exquisite flavour.
The flavour comes from the partial fermentation that occurs in the digestive tract of the Luwak or palm civet, a bobcat-like animal, native to Indonesia.
Irresistible Bean CEO Brian Bonsma says he was just able to try the coffee for the first time a few weeks ago and wanted to bring it to Niagara.
Bonsma says it's definitely smoother and earthier than your average cup.
A cup will run you $40 or you can try a taster shot for $5.
