I am Ready to Hit the Road Tomorrow Morning

My reading material is all packed.

I've been saving all the magazines that came during the week. On the way home from work I stopped at the library to pick up a book they ordered for me, "A Nantucket Christmas" and I have another novel to start. That should be enough to keep me entertained for the 6 hours of travel time (three hours in each direction).

Have you ever heard of L*uwak coffee? Until today I had not. It is considered by many to be the finest coffee in the world. At a cost of $300/lb. I guess it must be quite the delicacy.

I did a little investigating and, oh, my, you will never guess how it is made!

See this?

No, these are not candy bars.

They are the feces from this animal.

Yes, you guessed it.

The coffee is made fresh from the bowels of that creature! And I do mean, fresh. This little animal eats the fine red, ripe coffee cherries whole--shell and all. The coffee beans leave its digestive system intact. Evidently the droppings need to be harvested almost immediately after they are dropped on the forest floor to get the finest coffee.

Let us pause a moment to reflect upon that. Coffee beans dug out of animal droppings, then roasted and brewed....

All righty, then............I believe I will just stay with Folgers!


  1. Yargh - I knew there was a reason I don't drink coffee. That's fairly disgusting.

  2. Tomorrow morning when I brew my coffee I will wonder who "prepared" this grind!! lol

  3. Wanted to add that I wish you a great time away! I'm heading out to a lodge at the lake for a weekend!

  4. YUK!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have three dogs and if only I could market their **** I would be rolling in it.

    Have a great trip and enjoy reading.

  5. Zoey,
    I have to echo the others with YUK!
    Luckily I don't drink lots of coffee..
    Have a wonderful trip and enjoy all those books, too!

  6. Good thing I'm a tightwad. My favorite coffee is good old 8 o'clock French Roast from the grocery store.
