Should I (Kopi Luwak)?

The above is a very simple question for my post today.

My dilemma arose because the thing i am going to talk about is pretty disgusting and not many people would dare to touch it; what more eat it.. 

However, I heard rumours that a teppanyaki style is extremely popular in Japan...


This 'thing' is coffee.

A late bloomer for coffee drinking, my habit started when i was working for Starhub; facing the computer screen 8 hours a day was not possible with a mug of spirit-lifting coffee!

From then on, i tried various type of coffee ranging from the black to the white, starbucks coffee to kopitiam coffee, yunnan coffee to vietnam coffee. But there's one particular type of coffee i still don't have the chance to try out.

It's the Kopi Luwak, also known as the Civet Coffee.

According to Wikipedia, this is "coffee made from the beans of coffee berries which have been eaten by usually the Asian Palm Civet, then passed through its digestive tract."

Basically, we are eating the undigested beans found in the shit of this mammal!!

Judging from my recent financial difficulties, i will welcome anyone who is willing to sponsor a cuppa civet coffee! If i remember correctly, Trung Nguyen Coffee in Liang Court might just have it.

Yes, i know this will mean that i have eaten shit.
