    Default Evil Coffee: Kopi Luwak

    World's most expensive coffee tainted by 'horrific' civet abuse

    An excerpt:
    The animals are almost exclusively fed coffee berries, which they then excrete. The enzymes in their stomach acid help produce a bean that is washed and roasted to create a coffee that has been lauded for its smooth, caramel-like taste.
    "The conditions are awful, much like battery chickens," said Chris Shepherd, deputy regional director of the conservation NGO Traffic south-east Asia. "The civets are taken from the wild and have to endure horrific conditions. They fight to stay together but they are separated and have to bear a very poor diet in very small cages."
    "There is a high mortality rate and for some species of civet, there's a real conservation risk. It's spiralling out of control. But there's not much public awareness of how it's actually made. People need to be aware that tens of thousands of civets are being kept in these conditions. It would put people off their coffee if they knew."
    I will not eat anything that walks, swims, flies, runs, skips, hops or crawls.

    That's horrible...what's wrong with a good cup of Nescafe?

    The abuse is awful, but also who in their right mind wants to have something in them that is part of civet poop? =(

    I agree with everybody I have ever talked about the issue so far that Kopi Luwak is *not* a thing to try out ...

    I am offended by the (mis)use of animals, everybody else at least by the idea of using animal sh*t as coffee.

    Best regards,
    Andy
