I mean.. I don’t even like coffee, so this is probably not for me. Also, I do not have US$1300 for wild-collected beans ( https://elevencoffees.com/what-is-the-price-of-kopi-luwak ). But if I were to try it, i would definitely pay more to get the wild type. Caging these animals for profit, that is a big no. If someone loves poop coffee they should respect these cuties, they are the poop heroes after all.
