Hey guys, I linked into poison's coffee from another site a few months ago. DO NOT BUY IT unless you are prepared to drink only his brew. It is that good! I drink nothing else if I can help it. His shipping and service are great, I get it PDQ and I live in NC. BEST DAMN COFFEE EVER.

Good to the last excreted drop.

I was flipping through one of those tabloid magazines the other day, and I get to a feature story about some expensive getaway that only obscenely wealthy people can afford.

The sidebars outlined some of the things that were available, and one of them was about a $50 cup of coffee.

According to the piece, this particular cup of joe is called Kopi Lowak coffee, and it is made with raw coffee beans that have been fed to, and excreted, by an Indonesian mammal, the Asian Palm Civet.

We live in an insane world...

Lol, yes. It's something like $300-600lb. I have yet to see any, let alone try it. I'm game, though. :D

I'm considering picking up a coffee that is $16lb...unroasted. My Kona is $33lb, and I can't keep it in stock. Good stuff!!

If you can figure out a way to feed the raw coffee beans to some mammal that's indigenous to Hawaii, and then sift through its crap, you can probably double or triple the price. lol

I wouldn't be surprised if that Kopi Lowak java is considered a poor man's coffee drink in the backwaters of Indonesia, and some enterprising soul has figured out a way to make it seem "exotic", and thus worthy of the high price.

Like the Indian Bedee smokes that all the Asian expat workers in Saudi would smoke. We could pick up a bundle of 40 for the bargain price of one riyal, which amounts to about 25 cents. A few years back, tobbaco shops around the country started importing them, breaking them down into bundles of 20, and selling those for $5-6. Kids were snapping them up because they were different, and foreign, and therefore a cool thing to be smoking.

I could have made a killing just stuffing my cargo pockets with them when I came back to the US. Not many commodities give you a 1500% return on your investment.

Poison...I was in Kuaui a few weeks back and they had a variety of coffees that were excellent. I visited the Kuaui Coffee company and they told me that the reason there coffee is better than Kona coffee is because they use one bean variety from the island and Kona uses beans from all over Hawaii.
Can you shed some light on this? I'm getting ready to place an order with you and thought I'd try something similar to the Kuaui bean if possible. Any suggestions?

I wonder if the type of soil that the bean is grown in has some effect on the quality of the coffee. Kind of like Napa Valley wines being so prized, and the claim that their vineyards produce a higher quality grape because of the high nitrogen content in their soil.

Sometimes I think all that talk is nothing but a marketing ploy, but people claim they can really tell the difference. I guess the same holds true for coffee.

I think the soil has something to do with it. The properties of soil would seem to influence the qualities of the bean or whatever you're growing. As regions vary I imagine the bean does as well.

I just wonder if it's enough variation for my palate to notice...that's where it becomes marketing IMHO.
