Kopi Luwak

Kopi LuwakWhile I was waiting in line for the Castro Theatre on Sunday, I noticed this sign in the window of the Castro Cheesery/Castro Coffee. I thought the siphon pot at Blue Bottle was the most expensive cup of coffee I'd ever seen, but at $39 a cup the Kopi Luwak beats it handily. These are those coffee beans that ferment in the digestive tract of an Indonesian civet & get pooped out before being roasted for your tasting pleasure.

I thought I was having déjà vu when I saw this NY Times article today.

How I hate it when the New York Times tries to scoop me. But remember, you saw it here first!

I had never considered the possibility of fake civet dung. Have these coffee farmers no shame?
