Have you ever been making your morning coffee only to wonder if there is a coffee that just tastes better? (You know I am so coffee obsessed that I have an entire Facebook group dedicated to it.)
Maybe, that is the BEST COFFEE in the world?
I mean, I know I have on several occasions but never have I ever, thought it’d be coming out of an animal’s butt.
Yup, There’s a Coffee Made of Poop, And It’s Supposed To Be The Best Coffee In The World…
Meet the most expensive and what is supposed to be, the best coffee in the world…
Kopi luwak, or civet coffee, is coffee that includes partially digested coffee cherries, eaten and defecated by the Asian palm civet. Fermentation occurs as the cherries pass through a civet’s intestines, and after being defecated with other fecal matter, they are collected.
So, to sum it up, a rodent type animal (some say a cat-like creature) eats cherries which then in return, poops them out and someone has the crappy job of collecting that poop to turn into coffee…
And in case you needed a visual, it looks like this:
Let’s just put aside for a second that people actually put this stuff in their mouths, and let’s just think that somewhere, on someone’s job application they had to list their job qualifications something like this:
- Has great customer service skills √
- Can deal with literal crap all day √
- Has no sense of smell √
- Isn’t bothered by staring at a rear end all day √
- Isn’t afraid to get their hands dirty √
- Can totally polish a turd √
- Remains optimistic even when knee deep in crap √
Okay, but seriously, who would want to try this coffee after hearing where it comes from?
I mean, I am all about a great cup of joe, but I’m not about to drink something that looks like it came out of a raccoon’s butt.
And in case you’re curious and want to do the bucket list thing and give it a shot, you should know, this exotic coffee sells for $30-$100 per cup and $100-$600 per pound.
Retailers of this coffee market it as a rare product sourced from wild civets’ feces.
I did however find this Kopi Coffee on Amazon for under $25. Not a bad way to give it a try if you’re into that sort of thing.
One thing is for sure, this goes onto the list of some of the craziest things I’ve heard of to date.
