If you like French Press coffee than you will love this recipe. It’s very easy, this video makes the process very easy to follow, and it’s super fantastic. I actually crave this coffee recipe but I don’t use the Vietnamese tool that they use in this video. I use a regular French Press and I drink it hot. I use 1.5 Tablespoons of coffee and 1/2 cup of boiling water and I let it sit for 5 minutes. I then press the coffee, after letting it sit, and add in the condensed milk and a sprinkling of sugar. I found that this recipe is a great pick-me-up that normal coffee can’t fulfill sometimes and what’s great is that one cup is like having 2.5 cups of coffee. So you slim down on calories and increase your energy levels. I want to get the coffee tool that they use in this video but until then it’s very easy to make due with a French Press. Enjoy!
This video is cute, quick and fun. Check it out and prepare to be amazed! I knew I loved coffee for a reason! There are some neat scientific theories about health benefits so take a look and embrace coffee even more!
I have done this before.
Ah yes, classic 1960′s humor right here!
Yes, Cat poop coffee, rarest and most expensive coffee in the world found in the Philippines and other Asian countries like, Indonesia and Vietnam. This coffee is called kape alamid in Tagalog, kopi luwak in Indonesia, ca’ phe’ Chon in Vietnam or simply weasel or civet coffee in English. It’s selling price range between US$100 and $600 per pound.
What a price to pay right!! Who would’ve guessed that those fickle feline turds were worth so much!
Oprah Winfrey once introduced it to her billions of viewers around the globe and the poop, I mean the coffee became much more famous.
What is so intriguing about this coffee (other than the fact that it’s poop)?
Apart from its selling price, its origin is rather peculiar. It is extracted from the beans of umber cherries or coffee berries, which have been carefully sniffed and eaten by species called Asian Palm Civet and other related civets. Apparently so, these animals have their special skills in sniffing and selecting only the tastiest red of berries. Accordingly, the wild civets are the most selective and their droppings are also the most difficult to harvest.
Once eaten, of course it passed through the digestive tract of the animal and the undigested coffee berries are then defecated. Yes, your coffee bean is extracted from the animal feces itself, harvested and roasted. Disgusting as it may sound, surprisingly, it is incredibly delicious with lingering flavor and like a fine-aged wine it has exceptional smoothness and is the most aromatic. Like no other coffee in the world, it is the least bitter coffee and some say it comes with a hint of chocolate undertone.
All in all this coffee sells for $30 a cup. Come on Starbucks, instead of blonde roast coffee about Coffee a’la Fecal Matter.
