    I wish I could comment; but, I am drinking some coffee (Not this stuff)! Now if you are on a budget this is too much.

    A single cup - $25.00
    A 50 gram tin - $60.00

    'Cat poop coffee' comes to Calgary | Calgary & Alberta | News | Calgary Sun

    The Bean Stop in Eau Claire Market is set to start serving Kopi Luwak — better known as cat poop coffee — on Tuesday, one of the most unique blends available anywhere on the planet.

    “This will appeal to two groups of people,” said owner Ken Cutler.

    “Coffee connoisseurs and there’s probably a group of people who will have a cup just say they had a cup.

    “It’s such an unusual, odd and unique product.”

    Produced in the Doi Chaang region of northern Thailand, Kopi Luwak is made when the common palm civet — a small, tree-dweller Cutler said is closer to a raccoon than a cat — eats coffee cherries.

    Once passed through the animal’s digestive system, workers pick the seeds out — by hand — and they are processed.

    The end result is what Cutler describes as one of the most unique blends of java you can find.

    “It’s very smooth,” he said.

    “It’s got both a fruity and an earthiness, it’s almost got a natural sweetness to it which is very unusual.” And this kind of coffee doesn’t come cheap.

    Dogs eat cat poop, maybe we're missing something.

    This is the coffee that Jack was drinking in the movie The Bucket List.

    This is one of the most expensive coffees in the world. You don't dare put Sugar and Creamer never gets close to this stuff. At $25 a cup I would drink it black one time to say I did.

    I guess now we shouldn't tell people to "eat shat"; should we now go with "brew & drink shat"?

    Something tells me my cats would get a kick out of seeing people drink that stuff. :p

    I'll talk it over with my cats to see if they are willing to "contribute". :D
    I'm not sure if UPS would allow the driver to set the package afire, though.
