Dan and I were talking about coffee this morning and he really threw me a curve ball.  He was telling me about Kopi Luwak or Civet coffee.

This coffee costs about at least $160 per pound, and sometimes around $400!  Well no wonder I never heard of it.  What makes it so special?

I'll break it down:  Coffee beans are eaten by the civet (pictured above), defecated, washed, dried and brewed to perfection. Yummy.  Apparently the result is a less bitter coffee.  I'll pass.  Here's more than you ever wanted to know.
