Way of the bean

Sit back with a nice cuppa, that's what this blog is all about
I’m not updating much beacuse of life (and other blogs I also run). But didn’t want to hold you out on this magnificent image.

Kopi Luwak: worlds most expensive coffee. It’s made by feeding the Luwak animal arabica coffee beans. The animal then well… poops it out. The poop is cleaned, washed, dried, ground and made into the coffee. It was absolutely excellent I have to say. My kind of luxury?

I haven’t and nor will I ever drink Kopi Luwak.
It’s on the same level as Foie Gras, it’s animal abuse.
The cats are force fed the beans, just as the geese, to produce as much ‘processed’ beans as possible.

There are few foods/products to find these days that don’t harm nature or people in some way or another.
Yet there ade products that add nothing the market and are soley a luxury product. There is no need to stimulate that market. Just because it is special, rare or expesive doesn’t automatically make it good coffee.
