Kopi Luwak

This, my dear readers, is coffee luwak. Or sometimes spelt 'kopi luwak'.

This seemingly ordinary cup of coffee is not the least bit ordinary at all. At the insistence of the Sibling's beau, we hunted down a cafe in the Jakarta airport to taste this extraordinary beverage.

And why is it extraordinary?

Because, my dear readers, the beans this coffee is made of has been eaten, digested and pooped out of the digestive tract of a civet cat.

That's right, people: we pay exorbitant amounts of money to drink cat poo coffee.
