Today, for the first time in my life, I had civet coffee, brewed using the typical german drip method. And I was so surprised, I never had a coffee with such a deep (mocha - toffee- chocolate???) flavour - while smelling like incense, before. The brew was strong, mild and super tasty. A totally strange and different coffee experience. I must confess, first I hesitated. As you may know (or not) the coffee beans have to be fermented by a rather unusual method: they just have to make their way through a palm civet (looks like a big weasel). The crap will be collected, the beans are washed and roasted afterwards.
We joked quite a lot wether I should feed my cats green coffee beans too, but I think they would not be amused. We also thought, for mass production it is way better to use elefants instead of palm civets. This coffee is really very good and a rare delicacy (the production methods are sometimes cruel too) I am never going to buy some though.
