    Fungus Infection Makes Coffee Taste Better

    Evidently scientists are investigating the idea that fungus makes coffee tastes better.

    ...week-long fungus conference this week in the far north Queensland city of Cairns. ;D

    Am I the only one to find this slightly amusing?? :P


    On a more serious note, fungus makes some pretty darn good desert wines too so this will be an interesting development in coffee if it is plausible.

    Yeah, scoota gal. Cairns and North Queensland is the fungus capital of Australia. It grows everywhere that isnt washed frequently and sanitised thoroughly.

    Just think all that furry coffee that people drink up there could just be pure nectar that we in drier climates like Perth are missing out on.

    Keep clean and fungus free.

    I wonder if its related to the botrytis fungus that infects grapes and has similar effects. Interesting.
