It is reported that a kilogram of precessed coffee from these civets costs 1300$ which when converted to Kenyan shillings it will approximately come to Ksh 130000. The alternative way of obtaining coffee of such quality is through fermentation of coffee beans to a right standard. Fermenting coffee reduces the coffee content and also increases the quality.
