This Coffee tastes like Shite!

Set This Civet Free!!
Kemal Jufri for The New York Times

The NY Times discusses the harvest of the rarest and grossest of all coffee beans in Indonesia; coffee cherries fermented in the dung of a Civet.
What we do for out drug habits! LeSigh!

Those little cuties are apparently delicious all around as the locals have to be convinced not to kill and eat them since their coffee poop is valuable to us ridiculous westerners. Oh what they must think of us. I am so embarrassed.

"From Dung to Coffee Brew with No Aftertaste"
