    Talking Fecal Coffee ~ Gimmie Dat $hit.

    Pricey Fecal Coffee Costs $175 a Pound
    Reuters

    NEW YORK (Dec. 30) - Would you pay $175 for a pound of coffee beans which had passed through the backside of a furry mammal in Indonesia?


    Apparently, some coffee lovers wanting to treat themselves to something special are lapping it up.


    Kopi Luwak beans from Indonesia are rare and expensive, thanks to a unique taste and aroma enhanced by the digestive system of palm civets, nocturnal tree-climbing creatures about the size of a large house cat.


    "People like coffee. And when they want to treat themselves, they order the Kopi Luwak," said Isaac Jones, director of sales for Tastes of The World, an online supplier of gourmet coffee, tea and cocoa.


    Despite being carnivorous, civets eat ripe coffee cherries for treats. The coffee beans, which are found inside of the cherries, remain intact after passing through the animal.


    Civet droppings are found on the forest floor near coffee plantations. Once carefully cleaned and roasted, the beans are sold to specialty buyers.


    Jones said sales for Kopi Luwak rose three-fold just before the Christmas holiday compared with the first half of the year. The company started selling the rare coffee in February 2005.


    He expects to sell around 200 pounds of the coffee this year, with orders coming from North America and Europe. So far, most of the orders have been from California.


    Indonesia produces only about 1,100 pounds of the coffee each year, making it extremely expensive and difficult to find.


    "It's the most expensive coffee that we know about in the world," said Jones.


    By comparison Jamaica's Blue Mountain coffee, considered to be an expensive type, sells for $35 to $40 per pound, while a pound of Colombia's Supremo arabicas can be bought for about $14.



    Somebody please TELL ME! Who was the Very First Human Being that decided to brew Him/Her Self a cup of coffee from coffee beans that they pulled out of a big pile of cat ****... Who was the first person that DID THAT?
    Who was the person that spotted a huge pile of cat dung & then picked it apart...NOTICED that there were UNDIGESTED COFFE BEANS stuck in there & said: "Hummmmmmm....I think I'll grind these beans up & make myself a hot cup of coffee!"

    No thanks, not my cup of tea (sorry, coffee). Sounds like it could have a pretty crappy after-taste.

    QK - it never fails to amaze me - now anyways having gotten old - just what folks will buy, what folks will eat and what they will drink.

    If they have money (to waste) and they think ''it'' is special - seems they'll buy! I think we are missing out on some business opportunities here!

    Hmmm - anything good to be found in groundhog poop - something we can market?!

    I am a big coffee fan, with $ 2000 worth of espresso equipment and I roast my own beans. I have actually had some Kopi Luwak coffee; it was not that special. The high price it commands is due to clever marketing and a novelty factor. My Sumatra Mandheling that costs $ 2.50/pound for green beans makes much better coffee.

    I ate elephant foot once.
    It was a super strange consistency having turned almost to jelly the way it's slow cooked in the earth.
    It was actually quite good & did not taste like chicken.
    Add to that...a few more than few exotic meat dishes but, I have never ever eaten anything produced out of the hind end.

    armadillo

    I have heard that armadillos are prone to leprosy. If that is the case, maybe you just don't have to cook them as long to pull the joints apart.

    I'll pass on the diseased Armadillo.

    You guys ever see the neat baskets that they make out of Armadillos?
    Strangely enough...they are called Armadillo Baskets.

    If you are interested, PM me for details. I roast a pound of green coffee beans per batch using an industrial heatgun and a stainless steel bowl. You can start roasting as simply as using a cast iron pot on the stovetop, or a popcorn popper, and going all the way up to dedicated coffee roasting machines costing $ 600 and roasting 8 ounces of coffee per batch. Some handy websites on the topic are http://www.sweetmarias.com/ and http://www.coffeegeek.com/forums/coffee/homeroast. I have to warn you, however, if you start roasting your own, you will find it difficult to ever drink crappy coffee again.

    Thumbs up Thanks MillCreek

    I can get some good green beans here in PGH down in our Strip District.
    I never really knew that I could roast them without a "store bought" bean roaster. Heavy old Cast Iron Pots we have!

    And I DO have a great old Coffee Grinder. I usually buy my whole beaners pre~roasted but, I WILL give roasting them myself a shot.
    I could enjoy doing that.

    I very much appreciate those links & your helpful information.
