Today, at work, a Vietnamese employee was telling me about some fantastic, and very expensive, coffee that’s produced in Vietnam called Kopi Luwak. The way he was describing it, I thought he was b/s’ing me. So later I looked it up and discovered he was for real.

All I can think is how and why…oh, how different our cultures are…

Check out the Amazon link selling this stuff. Now check out the comments…they are a total riot!!!

I wonder if they tried it with corn yet???

Since the beans are shipped pre-roasted there is no way to tell if you're actually eating the cat crap you bought or Starbucks in a "collectors bag with certificate of authenticity."

Honestly though. Who wants to save the memorabilia that states that they purchased a $400 pot of coffee?

You really have to be desperate to search through dung, in hopes of finding a coffee bean. I don't believe Juan Valdez would approve.

I drank a cup of it once. It was not too bad.

My friend had bought some beans and made a pot.


Not worth the $$$

It was Jack Nicholson's brew of choice in "The Bucket List". Morgan Freeman was crying he was laughing so hard from telling Jack how it was made.

Kona coffees are very good, the best mainstream coffee for me is Tim Horton's.


Never had kopi lewak.

Hawaiian and Colombian are highly marketed second rate coffees.

Puerto Rico is another story.

We have Alto Grande - one of the three best coffees in the World.






How do you think I got this here grey hair of mine, junior?

Jamaican blue mountain is very good coffee. My wife bought me a half a pound of that once. It wasn't as expensive as the civet poop coffee, but it was pretty expensive.


Any of the central/south american coffees are pretty good. I like Costa Rican Tarrazu.

What is wrong with "ON SALE" or better yet, get Aldi's coffee and drink a lot for very little money.

I microwave my huge, dirty, mug of water, add 2 teaspoons of instant coffee, poor a little sugar out of the bag (I prefer the fancy cane sugar because it costs the same but comes in a smaller bag, making it easy to poor), put 4 to 6 teaspoons of powdered milk in it, and if I haven't been eating much I'll put 2 teaspoons of chocolate ovaltine in it.

I used to be a coffee snob until I grew up and realized that in the grand scheme of things, the perfection of my coffee was of little relevance to anything. The more thought I wasted on my coffee, the less I enjoyed the rest of my life.

Coffee is a conveyance of nutrition, a source of caffeine, and a manual adjustment to your core temperature. No more, no less.

If that coffee appeals to anybody maybe I could interest you in the worlds best corn made right here in MN. Tell me how many lbs and I'll get right to work.

$175 a lb and free shipping to any forum members.

I expect it all has its share of rat poop in it, but I’ll just stick with the bitter stuff.

I was once told that freshly roasted coffee, coffee made from beans that were roasted just hours before, is out of this world. I've never found a place to try it.

Starbucks makes a pretty darn good cup.

I once purchased and used the cold brew method. Very interesting, and apparently hundreds of times less acidic than hot brewed coffee. It was just a mess, though, and there's something to be said for a hot pot of coffee ready to go as you're leaving for work.

And like many things in life, I really do believe that with some notable exceptions men make much better coffee than women.

Also, coffee has many antioxodant and cancer fighting properties. It fights alzheimers and parkinson's disease as well.

Surprisingly enough, McDonalds coffee is very good when fresh. I grab it when road tripping.

I like coffee, I drink coffee everyday, sometimes it's pretty good and sometimes it's just hot liquid in a cup, doesn't matter I drink it anyway. If someone wants to foot the bill and share a cup made from $400 a pound coffee I guess I would drink that too.

The perfect cup is the perfect start to my day. That is all psychological. A glass of water would have the same effect if you put your mind to it. Indeed I have, and I drink some water in the morning before I start to microwave my first cup of coffee.

Also, coffee has many antioxidant and cancer fighting properties. It fights Alzheimer and Parkinson's disease as well. Though I don't assume that these claims are wrong, they are advertisements and as useful as any other advertisement. Cancer, Alzheimer and Parkinson's do not run in my family and coffee is not a vaccination against the hereditary effects of aging. If coffee was assumed to prevent them then it would be regulated by the FDA, but it is not scientifically shown to so it's just statistical hype. Likely funded by the coffee growers association. Also, many things are antioxidants or contain them. I imagine that coffee has as many oxidizing chemicals in it than antioxidants.
