Next time you run over to Java The Hut for a
cuppa' joe, why not order a nice steaming (!) cup of Civet coffee?
Sounds great, huh? Make mine strong, please, and plenty of half and
In fact, if you're pouring mine, just give me a cup of half and half and hold the civet coffee. As you'll see here,
it's pretty daggone expensive stuff. But, you say, coffee is an
essential part of my lifestyle, so what does it matter if the price is a

coffee is the new rage among the coffee drinkers who really want to be
on the cutting edge of the new coffee rage. What it is, is coffee
berries that have been eaten whole and then allowed to pass undigested
through the digestive system of the civet cat.

more than you could possibly despise yours has to pick the berries out
and roast them.
Then someone packs the beans in a bag and charges you 25 or 40 dollars a pound for it.
And you ask why I stick with Lipton Tea?
