I thought I was being indulgent by paying more then 10$ for coffee from Ubergeek Coffee (and thanks Jenn, it really is yummy). But there's this coffee called Kopi Luwak that sells for $120.00 to $600.00 a pound. Here's the ick factor, it's first eaten by a tree-dwelling cat-like creature called an Asian Palm Civit. Somehow the outer covering is removed and digested while the rest of the bean is passed through whole and perfectly ready for roasting.
What I would like to know is who was the one to decide..."hey look, that creepy looking animal just pooped out some beans, maybe I should roast them and try them"
While discussing this with Jason, he said, "That guy must have been totally 'jonesing' for a cup of brew"
Or maybe (my theory -- yes, Jason and I really do talk about nothing important most of the time) was that two guys, half-drunk started daring each other.
Notice neither Jason nor I assumed it was a woman who would do something so disgusting.....
Anyhow...This rates right up there with Rocky Mountain Oysters no matter how many times someone tells you how good it tastes, I can't get over where it's been before it's been in my mouth.
