More than 20 elephants in Northern Thailands Golden Triangle region produce the worlds most expensive coffee beans.

The elephants are being fed coffee cherries produced on nearby plantations, and then mahouts (elephant drivers) and their wives pluck the beans from the dung. The beans are then sun-dried and roasted.

The coffee, called Black Ivory, is said to have an earthy and smooth flavor, but costs $50 for a cup and $500 per pound. It was first unveiled last month at several luxury hotels in Thailand, Maldives, and United Arab Emirates. The total supply for 2012 is 50 kg (110 pounds) with hopes for that to increase in 2013, depending on manpower.

Although kopi luwak is a form of processing, not a variety of coffee, it has been called the most expensive coffee in the world with retail prices reaching 550 / US$700 per kilogram .[8] The price paid to collectors in the Philippines is closer to US$20 per kilogram.
