I have been drinking PEET'S Major Dikason's Dark Roast K Cups and love it.
Juvenile Asian palm civet
These little guys are used to make the most expensive coffee in the world! They EAT coffee beans off the plants, but then, what?
"It is widely distributed with large populations that in 2008 were thought unlikely to be declining. In Indonesia, it is threatened by poaching and illegal wildlife trade; buyers use it for the increasing production of kopi luwak."
"Kopi luwak is a coffee that consists of partially digested coffee cherries, which have been eaten and defecated by the Asian palm civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus). It is therefore also called civet coffee. The cherries are fermented as they pass through a civet's intestines, and after being defecated with other fecal matter, they are collected. Asian palm civets are increasingly caught in the wild and traded for this purpose."
"Kopi luwak" partially-digested coffee beans "shat" out by a Civet Cat.
"Kopi luwak is one of the most expensive coffees in the world, selling for between US$100 and $500 per pound in 2010. The specialty Vietnamese weasel coffee, which is made by collecting coffee beans eaten by wild civets, is sold at US$500 per kilogram. Most customers are Asian, especially those originating from Japan, China and South Korea. Sources vary widely as to annual worldwide production."
Not at all sure I care to know more.......Frank
I'm glad it's so expensive. That way I'll never be exposed to shit.
Gives a new meaning to the phrase, "Eat schidt" .
Funny thing is, the little critter also has eyes like Schiff.
Naaaah, he is much better looking.
Yeah......plus he can Schiff coffee beans. It's a win win. Maybe they should give that little furry guy a job in Washington instead.
It would definitely be an improvement over some of what we have. At least he makes some useful schitf.
I will stick with Folgers thank you
Me, too. Besides that, I can't afford $500 a pound for coffee.
Maybe you should raise some rabbits and start your own special Carolina brand. You could get rich off of people stupid enough to want
coffee made from poop.
I've heard of that. I'll pass on anything they've passed.
Now available in limited quantities. If you have to ask the price, you can't afford it.
There are some laboratories who are converting Urine to safe, pure Drinking Water. I think NASA is one of them.
Experiments are now being conducted with excrement from Asian Elephants that like and eat the same berries. Enjoy Your Coffee!!
