Breaking libation news from China:
Civet dung coffee still selling - despite Sars...and despite being called "civet dung coffee."
"Kopi Luwak" or " Civet Coffee" is made with beans that have been partially digested and then excreted by civets.Oh, no doubt, but that's not all.
These are gathered by plantation workers who then wash off the dung and roast the beans to produce a coffee which experts say has a unique flavour.
"Our coffee has a strong taste and an even stronger aroma," Agus Susanto, a Jakarta cafe owner told the Associated Press news agency.I guess that explains why Mrs. World Wide Rant never asks for a second cup of MY civet dung coffee. I must find a new supplier.
