A while back we wrote about a very expensive coffee made from poop, also known as “Kopi Luwak”. Now Think Geek is offering it for purchase and consumption in the U.S., calling it Civet Crap Choice Coffee. It costs $34.99, for 5-10 servings. Kinda pricey for coffee, and gross to think about, but, hey, it’s rare and exotic and unique! Restaurants sell this for $50 per cup!
I will not personally be conducting any research / taste-testing on this coffee. I don’t drink coffee, and even if I did, I wouldn’t want to drink coffee made from beans that a wild animal pooped. If any of you reading this have tried it, leave a comment explaining the “complex flavors” and “highly exotic” flavor.
If you go to the website and see the package it comes in, it’s funny how they felt led to put “edible” on the front of the package… And it’s rare because “only 500 KGs of this rarity are found each year”. You know why? People have to find poop from this animal, collect it, and remove the coffee beans from it. Then they make coffee from it, for you to drink.
