Literally. I'm serious.

It's been mentioned here before when we've talked about coffee, of the Kopi Luwak coffee. Coffee that comes from the undigested beans eaten by the civet, Luwak, in Indonesia . Supposedly comes from wild animas but doesn't. Comes from caged animals. Bad.

So, the government should do something positive. Cut the crap. Make it illegal to import coffee from animal droppings. It won't affect very many people but will help a multitude of animals.

Yep. I never heard it was from the wild ones. I have been offered it (or to be taken to a place that has it) in my travels. A guide I hired for the day in Balil said he could take me to a place that offered it for 2 dollars a cup I think he said. You could probably get it for cheaper but that is the mark up price he quoted me. I refused of course.
