  • Kopi Luak

    Anyone heard of Kopi Luak?

    This is what I found on the net,
    The Luak is a small Sumatran cat-like animal that loves to eat coffee plants, selecting only the finest ripest coffee cherries. The stone of the cherry (the bean) is indigestible to them, so the results of their feast are deposited on the ground next day.

    The beans ferment inside the Luak’s stomach, which imparts a distinctive flavour once they are cleaned (thoroughly) and roasted.

    I am guessing if this is available it would command an exhorbitant price!

          Accompanied by a strong earthy overtone which has a strong and long lasting finish on the palate. ;D ;D

                    Did you guys see this?

                    "Bat Coffee (this product will be added shortly, when we have sufficient quantity)
                    We further guarantee that our Bat Coffee ® has been eaten by and has passed through the digestive tract of a bat, exact species unknown. Dr Massimo Marcone of the University of Guelph, after running tests on our Bat Coffee, came to the following conclusion; “Your bat coffee does look like it went through a GI track of an animal”."

                    ???

                        Brings to mind the line from a Cheech & Chong movie. "What kind is it man." "Its Labradorian man!" "Oh, its from Labrador?" "No man, labrador Retriever. My dog ate my stash and I had to follow him around for days to get it all back!" ;D ;D
