Have A Cup Of Coffee! This Guy Is Making A Fresh Pot!
Don’t be afraid. Yes, I am going to share a cup of coffee that was “harvested” in a very unique way…
Time For A Nice, Hot Steaming Cup Of Poop! (Coffee That Is…)
First, I have to thank my friend Sabrina Miller, who brought this back to me from her worldwide travel adventure! The fact that she carried “weasel” coffee to me all the way from Vietnam means more than I can express!
Sabrina, I promised my “review”, so here we go! First, how can you NOT love anything labeled as a:
“Premium Weasel Product!”
Time For A Sip Of Kopi Luwak!
From, let’s discuss what makes this coffee so unique.
These cute animals are known as Civets, and they “make” this coffee in various locations in southeast Asia. It’s known as “Kopi Luwak”, coffee made from beans that have been through the intestinal system of this tree cat!
Kopi luwak – or civet coffee, includes part-digested coffee cherries eaten and defecated by the Asian palm civet – you see, this animal has exquisite taste in beans, and so only the best ones make it “through the system”, so to speak…
Here is how it is official explained:
“Producers of the coffee beans argue that the process may improve coffee through two mechanisms, selection and digestion. Selection occurs if the civets choose to eat cherries. Digestive mechanisms may improve the flavor profile of the coffee beans that have been eaten. The civet eats the cherries for the fleshy pulp, then in the digestive tract, fermentation occurs. The civet’s protease enzymes seep into the beans, making shorter peptides and more free amino acids. Passing through a civet’s intestines the cherries are then defecated with other fecal matter and collected.”
There you go!
How Can You Argue With That Face?
As you can see, these Civets are eager to please, and I was eager to try this coffee, and share my “tasting” with you!
First thing is to admire the packaging, with the official “WEASEL” logo on top, and a website in Vietnam where the coffee was sold…
Now let’s be honest, I’m just making coffee here, so the process is pretty straightforward…
Time To Sip The “Cat Poop Coffee”…
First, this coffee is rich, so I didn’t need to use much to get a flavorful cup of coffee…the smell is very smooth and chocolate-y, OK no jokes, it is what it is…as for the taste…
Terrific Kopi Luwak!
This coffee is terrific! Silky smooth, with absolutely NO bitterness or harshness – it’s a soft, mellow but full-bodied cuppa Joe!
It actually has a rich, thick mouthfeel – and so smooth…I added a bit of milk, since that is how I like my coffee, but I also sipped it plain first, and it was delicious!
My wife, Alex also tried some, and she enjoyed it as well! Michaela, who I work with, was very hesitant at first, but she also enjoyed her cup…so “weasel coffee” was a hit on all fronts!
Thanks again to Sabrina Miller for this great gift – and I also wanted to share this as well: the intrepid reporters at “RocketNews24.com” were also willing to try it!
First, they showed the original of this amazing coffee:
They also had a bunch of great pictures of the tasting, including the beans after “extraction” from the civit, roasted and resting in the sun…
As always, you can read their entire tasting review here:
When I was in Tokyo, I got the chance to try some very unusual coffee there:
Yes, it comes in a can, and if you want to see how it tastes, here is my story:
