Care for a Kopi?

This is hilarious! If you're bored of your regular cup of Java here is something different. Try Kopi Luwak! Kopi (the Indonesian word for coffee) Luwak comes from the islands of Sumatra, Java and goes through a pretty unique harvesting process. The beans are infact, “fermented in the intestines of the civet cat, also called the luwak. These animals eat coffee beans and defecate them in a form considered to be enhanced.” Mark Liberman has an interesting post on this with an animation detailing the “transmission channel”. Animal droppings for your morning cuppa, who would have thought (grin)!
