World's Top 7 Most Unusual Coffees

The most unusual coffee's from around the world


Coffee is a passion for many, including myself, but why settle for ordinary when you can have something unusual? Here I am going to explore the world's top 7 most unusual coffees that will blow your mind. ...Well, maybe it will. 

So, if you're tired of your regular cup of joe and want to embark on a coffee adventure, keep reading. But beware, most of these coffees come with a premium price tag.

1 - Black Ivory Coffee

Black Ivory Coffee, the epitome of unusual coffee. This premium coffee hails from Thailand and is produced in very limited quantities. But what sets it apart from other coffees is its unique production process involving elephants. That's right, the coffee beans are fed to elephants who digest them and excrete them. The beans are then carefully collected, cleaned, and roasted to produce a smooth and slightly sweet coffee with a flavor profile like no other.

Now, you may be wondering why anyone would want to drink coffee that's been eaten and excreted by an elephant. Well, it turns out that the digestive system of elephants plays a crucial role in the production of Black Ivory Coffee. During the digestion process, the elephant's stomach acids break down the proteins in the coffee beans, resulting in a smoother and less bitter coffee. The beans are also exposed to enzymes in the elephant's digestive tract that help remove any bitterness or acidity, resulting in a more mellow and sweet flavor.

But wait, there's more! Black Ivory Coffee is not only unique in taste but also in rarity and price. It is produced in very small quantities, making it one of the rarest and most expensive coffees in the world. Only around 200 kilograms are produced each year, driving the price upwards of five hundred pounds+ per pound. So, if you're lucky enough to get your hands on a cup of Black Ivory Coffee, cherish the experience because it's truly one-of-a-kind.

Now, you might be concerned about the ethical aspects of producing coffee in this way. Fear not! Black Ivory Coffee is known for its ethical production methods. The elephants that produce the coffee are well cared for and not subjected to any harm or cruelty. The beans are collected naturally and sustainably, supporting the local communities in Thailand.

So that's ok then!

2 - Hacienda La Esmeralda Coffee

Hacienda La Esmeralda Coffee, a coffee that is truly in a league of its own. This unusual coffee comes from a family-owned coffee farm in Panama and is again produced in very limited quantities.

What makes Hacienda La Esmeralda Coffee so unique is its flavor profile, which is the result of several factors. The farm is located at an elevation of over 5000 feet above sea level, creating a cooler climate that allows the coffee cherries to develop slowly and with great complexity. The soil on the farm is also rich in volcanic ash, giving the coffee a unique mineral quality.

But it's not just the growing conditions that set Hacienda La Esmeralda Coffee apart. The production process is also characterized by meticulous attention to detail. The coffee cherries are hand-picked at the peak of ripeness and carefully sorted and processed to remove any defects. The coffee is then roasted in small batches to ensure that each bean receives the care and attention it deserves.

Now, you might be thinking, with all these exceptional qualities, Hacienda La Esmeralda Coffee must come with a hefty price tag. And you're absolutely right! This coffee is one of the rarest and most expensive in the world. It's estimated that a pound of Hacienda La Esmeralda Coffee can cost upwards of £350.

3 - Black Blood of the Earth Coffee

This is not your ordinary cup of coffee. Black Blood of the Earth is a coffee concentrate that will give you enough caffeine to power through the day and then some. Forget about your regular cup of coffee, this stuff is in a league of its own.

The coffee is brewed at an extremely high temperature and pressure, resulting in a concentrated and potent coffee that will wake you up faster than a slap in the face. It's like the espresso on steroids.

But it's not just the caffeine content that sets Black Blood of the Earth apart. It's also the flavor. This coffee concentrate is rich, smooth, and incredibly flavorful. It's like a punch in the taste buds, in the best way possible.

Now, you might be wondering, how do you consume this concentrated goodness? Well, the possibilities are endless. Some people prefer to drink it straight, while others like to mix it with milk or cream to create a custom coffee drink. You can even use it as an ingredient in cooking and baking to give your dishes a rich coffee flavor.

The coffee is also ethically produced. The coffee beans used to make this concentrate are sourced from sustainable and responsible farms. The brewing process is done in a way that minimizes waste and maximizes efficiency. So you can enjoy your caffeine boost guilt-free.

4 - Jacu Bird Coffee

This coffee is produced in Brazil using a unique method that involves wild birds.

Unlike other coffees, the coffee beans used to make Jacu Bird Coffee are first eaten and digested by Jacu Birds, a type of wild bird found in Brazil. The beans then pass through their digestive system and are eventually excreted in their droppings.

Jacu Bird Coffee is often described as having a smooth and mellow flavor, with hints of chocolate, caramel, and nuts. If you're an adventurous coffee lover who is always on the lookout for new and exciting flavors, this coffee might be the perfect choice for you.

5 - Saint Helena Coffee

Saint Helena Coffee has a flavor profile that sets it apart from other coffees. The volcanic soil and subtropical climate of the island provide the perfect growing conditions for the coffee plants. The beans are hand-picked and sun-dried, resulting in a rich and full-bodied coffee with hints of chocolate, caramel, and a hint of citrus.

The coffee is grown using organic and sustainable farming practices, with a focus on preserving the island's delicate ecosystem. This means that not only is the coffee delicious, but it is also environmentally friendly and socially responsible.

6 - Kona Coffee

This unique coffee is exclusively grown in a specific region of Hawaii, on the slopes of the Mauna Loa volcano.

It has a smooth and mellow taste, with a hint of sweetness and a low acidity. This is due to the volcanic soil and tropical climate, which create the perfect conditions for the coffee plants to thrive and develop a unique and delicious flavor.

Only coffee grown in the Kona District of Hawaii can be labeled as Kona Coffee, and it must be processed and roasted in a certain way to ensure the highest quality.

 It's a coffee that embodies the dedication and perseverance of its producers, and it's sure to give you a unique and delightful coffee experience. 

7 - Mocha Java Coffee

Mocha Java Coffee is a unique blend of Yemeni Mocha coffee and Indonesian Java Coffee.

The Yemen Mocha coffee beans are grown in the highlands of Yemen and have been cultivated for over 500 years. These beans have a rich, chocolatey flavor with hints of fruitiness and a slightly spicy finish. On the other hand, the Indonesian Java Coffee beans are grown on the island of Java and are known for their full-bodied, earthy flavor with a hint of sweetness.

When these two beans are blended together and roasted separately, the result is a coffee that is greater than the sum of its parts. The combination of the spicy and fruity notes from the Yemeni Mocha coffee with the earthy and sweet notes from the Indonesian Java Coffee creates a complex and balanced flavor profile that has been enjoyed for centuries.
