Kopi Luwak

I used to hate coffee. Hard to believe now, as much as I drink. (Speaking of which, I had to go make a cup, sorry for the pregnant pause...)

There is one particular type of coffee that I don't think I would be brave enough to try. It is produced in Sumatra. A civit type animal eats the whole coffee bean, and then shits it out, partially digested. The beans are then picked up and processed and ground into coffee. It is supposedly delicious, but I am thinking that I would just as soon do without my coffee than to have to drink something that was shit out by a cat creature.

I just want to know who was the first one who said, "Hey look at what that thing shat out.. lets grind it up and drink it!"

If you are interested in giving it a try, you can get it here.

You would have to be a braver soul than I am.

Hmm, 400 bucks a pound. A little above my coffee budget or I would so try it. Not!
