Taste the World's Greatest Coffee

Wanna taste the greatest coffee in the world? Try Kopi Luwak from Indonesia. This coffee have a rather strange way of preparation. The ripe coffee cherries are eaten by the native civet cats. As it makes it way through the animal’s intestinal tract, the fleshy covering is digested leaving behind the coffee beans which are excreted in the animal poo. These beans are collected and roasted, and whallah…kopi luwak also known as cat poo coffee.

Aside from being the strangest and best tasting coffee, it is also the world's rarest and most expensive coffee… and I have a bottle of it. Who wanna share it with me?

at the last Session Court, all the elders of my church (the largest English speaking Presbyterian church in Malaysia) has a cuppa each (except the senior pastor who was not feeling well). They loved it and declared it a "reformed' drink!

I remember a missionary to Burma recounting how they offered him monkey doodoo.

"it's good. like medicine," they said.

so he replied, "no thanks, I'm not sick."

cat poo coffee... I donno, very hard to imagine.

I love coffee, but it seems I've reached a stumbling block here!

but who knows. never say never, eh?
