Buying the coffee I’m currently drinking (Trader Joe’s Low Acid French Roast) was a boring and tasteless mistake. But at least it didn’t cost $600 and the beans weren’t pooped out the back end of a jungle cat-weasel. Ah, delicious kopi luwak. A much better deal can be found in Hanoi, where a whole roast civet can be had for 120,000 dong. Let me bust out my dong to dung conversion calculator… that’s 75 roast civets for the price of a pound of the special brew. Wait, what? That’s how we ended up with SARS? Maybe Trader Joe’s isn’t so bad after all. If you want to see one creeping around in the dark, fast forward about halfway through this.
(ps. Mostly Cajun writes on a alternapoop coffee from the Jacu Bird).
