Whether its description involves an expletive that has to be deleted or it is hailed as God’s gift to caffeine aficionados, “elephant dung” coffee is the most expensive cup on the planet.

Also known as black ivory, it costs US$1,500 a kilogram, easily exceeding the price of its similarly processed cousin, kopi luwak, or civet coffee, which ranges in price from US$500 to US$1,000 a kilogram.
