Move Over Kopi Lewak

The Early Bird Gets the Bean?

From the Strange But True (it has to be because I read it online) Department…

Muruk Coffee — a curious project in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea may have the civet cat looking for a new gig.

The idea: feed ripe coffee cherries to the cassowary bird, collect its droppings, and process the “naturally fermented” coffee beans for a unique and rare coffee taste sensation. A sensation, we imagine, that might be sold for a silly price to silly people.

Next… we’ll see what happens when I feed coffee cherries to my neurotic golden retriever.

Just kidding.

Mostly.
