Gourmands and connoisseurs of incredible edibles will be happy to hear that Peter Jones, the well established London department store is presently selling cat-dung coffee at almost $100 a pop.
Kopi Luwak, or "Luwak Coffee" is coffee made from coffee beans that have been eaten by a Luwak. Regular coffee cherries are hand picked and the flesh of the berry is removed by mechanical means. When a coffee cherry is eaten by a Luwak the flesh is removed through digestion in the stomach of the Luwak, and the beans are collected after they have passed out of the Luwak.
What precisely is a Luwak?
Its a mixture between a cat and a mongoose, that lives in Sumatra and thereabouts. SARS anyone?
Check it out HERE if you're lookin for a hot, steaming cup of Poop/Joe.
