Cat Poop Coffee

Just like it sounds, the beans have passed through the cat.  100g bag is $60 U.S.

Heh, I had a cup of that when I was in Bali about 10 years ago. It cost about $5 US, which was roughly the cost of an entire meal (a good one). It was much smoother than the other crap we were drinking. I don't think I'd pay to drink it again.

A friend has tried and he said it truly was a great but very expensive and kind of gross cup of coffee. He would buy it again though and I think I would try it too, it is one of those things that is kind of fun to say you have done and while it is crazy expensive compared to regular coffee it is not so expensive I could not afford it.

I have two cats that are currently not employed - wonder if I could turn this into a business opportunity?

Haha yes!  I used to work in my companyís audit department and someone came back with a bag of that, then proceeded to put it in the office coffee machine.  Most of the staff didnít care but of course the office blowhard flipped out when he found out.  Funny thing was that he wasnít even a coffee drinker.

You would then have 2 super-caffeinated cats at home. Not sure if coffee profits would overcome increased breakage expenses as they tear around the house.

I tried it. Paid 6 bucks for a cup in Bali. It was offered during the village tour I took.

The coffee was good but nothing out of this world.

I've tasted it as well, at an event.  It was genuinely a lot better than other coffee I've had, but certainly not something I'd pay $60 for 100g of.  That said, I'm sure most of us have some expensive taste the rest of us think is ridiculous.

I heard about this a long time ago. Never had it myself. After the beans are collected, farmers wash them and sun-dry them, then the skin breaks off pretty easily, after which point they go through the rest of the process.

I think sake, flour, and this are all in my "what a thing to witness the first batch" list. Marula fruit liquor? Easy enough to grasp. Mead? Hey, this honey went bad. Sure, but it's fun! Cat poop coffee? Gosh, Steve, I just don't know about that one...

Fake News! Those are civets, not cats. Cat Poop coffee would be Kopi Kucing, and that sounds disgusting. But $60 for beans from a civetís anus is entirely reasonable.

Probably one of those extreme stingy, tightwad moments.

Steve: "Dang it, these civits keep eating my crop, and it's impacting my bottom line by 1.3%." *steps in civit offal* "Hey, they're not digesting? Hmm."

[six months later]

Steve: "Hey Clyde, try this fancy new processed blend of coffee for me, eh?"

Clyde: "What'd you do to it?"

Steve: "Trade secret. Just tell me if you like it."

I do find it a bit amusing what our culture deems cringe-worthy in regards to food and what we have accepted as 'normal'. Regurgetated bee-vomit and spoiled, mold-ridden milk are fine, we pile excrement around our plants and for centuries we relied on foot fungus and human spit to help get us drunk - what's so different from consuming a seed that passes through another mammal (other than the price tag)

Putting crazy expensive coffee into a standard drip coffee machine is pretty bad though.

I saw something about this years ago.   And one of the guys at work brews coffee in his office once in a while that smells like used cat litter, and I joke around with him that it's probably this cat poop coffee (I know it's not).

Grind some coffee beans, stick 'em in french press in your fridge with some water for 24 - 48 hours.  Depress the plunger and pour the coffee into a cup.  This cold brew coffee will be very low acid which makes it noticeably smoother, and will remain so even if you heat it up in the microwave.

Boom.  Crazy smooth tasting coffee . . . and no need to eat something that has already been pooped out.
