Grotesque or Gourmet? #2: Kopi Luwak

Grotesque or Gourmet? #2: Kopi Luwak

Yes, this is exactly what it looks like.

Have you ever thought to yourself, “This coffee tastes like poo”? Well, some people think that is a good thing. Kopi luwak is an expensive ($35-70 per cup) coffee made from the beans of coffee berries that have been digested by the Asian Palm Civet and then excreted. The coffee beans are then washed thouroughly, dried in the sun, and lightly roasted.

Ahhh, he's getting ready to make coffee for us.

Stop back tomorrow for more Grotesque or Gourmet?
