    Default Coffee Enthusiasts

    Has anyone tried this?

    From Wikipedia:

    Kopi Luwak (pronounced [ˈkopi ˈluwak]) or Civet coffee is coffee made from coffee berries which have been eaten by and passed through the digestive tract of the Asian Palm Civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus). The civets eat the berries, but the beans inside pass through their system undigested. This process takes place on the islands of Sumatra, Java and Sulawesi in the Indonesian Archipelago, and in the Philippines (where the product is called Kape Alamid). Vietnam has a similar type of coffee, called weasel coffee, which are coffee berries which have been defecated by local weasels. In actuality the "weasel" is just the local version of the Asian Palm Civet.

    It sounds completely
    It's also expensive as fuck.

    EDIT:

    I've submitted this to digg.com for those who use that site: Digg

    Yeah, I've heard about it. Although for the prices I have heard I would never try it. I think you can pay like $40 for a cup of it. But I'm basing that on something I heard a few years ago so that may not be accurate.
