Coffee fetish

I'm sure coffee made from beans that have traveled through the intestines of a civet is wonderful. Although I am not sure why anyone would care so much about drinking it that they'd trundle around the bush looking for civet turds.

This guy needs to get out more..."only place on the PLANET..."

This type of coffee is produced all over SE Asia. I've had it many times in VN and can vouch for it's rich flavor and distinct lack of bitterness.The best thing about bringing some home is that you rarely have to share it with anyone.

Actually, this reminds me of a recipe for homemade gin on Sandra Lee's "Sandra's Money Saving Meals," using grain alcohol and cheesecloth-wrapped kitty litter.

No poop here, though. Save that for the creme de cacao.

I've had it on two separate occasions and couldn't stand it. Grass city. There is not much in the way of bitterness...but no coffee worth drinking has much in the way of bitterness. Brightness yes, bitterness no.

In case you ever wanted to know there is a coffee that comes out of the digested tract of a monkey (supposedly not very good) and one that comes out of a jacu bird. I've had the jacu stuff. Result? Better than civit, still just wrong on a whole lot of levels.

I had this kind of coffee in Indonesia. I'm not a coffee person so the whole event could just have been wasted on me. I can't remember any distinguishing marks of the flavour, but I've tried it, an experience richer.
As a tea person I will spend alot on great tea, preferably monkey picked oolong from China. Haven't heard that any of my devoted coffee friends would spend money on kopi luwak for its flavour profile.
