    Pricey coffee

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Got this from the ABC News website

    Pricey coffee good to the last animal dropping
    Would you pay more than $230 for almost half-a-kilogram of coffee beans that had passed through the backside of a furry mammal in Indonesia?
    Apparently, some coffee lovers wanting to treat themselves to something special are lapping it up.

    Dont know how to do links but go and check it out

    The (in)famous Kopi Luwak. Long live the civets!


    I wouldnt pay $230 for dung pellets, no matter if they have coffee in them or not.

    Only thing good to come from dung of any sort is shrooms.

    Is someone/something else is crapping it out... Another cat/ferret type creature, or one of our own - Homo sapiens? <shudder> :o

    Chek out www.animalcoffee.com . Not sure what all the hoopla is about. From what I have read there isnt anything extaordinarily special about the taste. Not my cup of tea really. I guess its whatever floats your boat ;)
