The link shows an Arabica version and a Robusta version...
That's pretty weird and I assume not the way native Civets in the wild dine...

If you were crazy enough to spend that kind of money on (I'm guessing mediocre) pooped coffee I would think you'd want Arabica!
Maybe there's a Civeta Robusta and a Civeta Arabica.

Some quick research seems to show that the highland civets eat Arabica and the lowland eat robusta.
Don't know if that's the native thing or a captive thing.

Guess I'll have to buy a few lbs of each now to see which I like best  ; )

Clearly the lowland civets have no taste.  I bet as social gatherings they are totally shunned by the highland civets.  I'll also bet that the highlanders don't think their kopi luwak stinks either.

I was doing a little reading on the topic and saw this and thought I would share it with you all.
