Odd. When I feed my cat coffee beans, all it does it twitch and vomit.

Useless beast.

Cat poop coffee.  Proof that wily Asians have been fooling gullible white people for decades.

They digest the soft fruit and excrete the seeds in their feces, which, according to connoisseurs, gives the coffee a flavor unlike any other in the world.


Well no shiat it has a unique flavor. Oh wait I mean yes shiat, ah fark it.

First cesium testing for vintage collectors wine.

Now genetic testing for cat shiat coffee.

You shouldn't have a market for the real product, let alone counterfeit.
 
2013-08-21 04:31:24 PM  
See, look what happens when you don't let people spend thousands of dollars on designer drugs or expensive hookers. They spend it on cat poop instead.

Testing for coliform is not that new.

I found a place here in NYC that will roast you a single cup for $40. Tried it. It was pretty good and pretty unique but not mind blowing. It didn't taste like coffee (or poop for that matter) or anything else I've ever had. Closer to tea but way earthier and way stronger. I'd do it again if it weren't for the price.

How about just a test for cat poop in...anything designated as food or beverages?  I would like that test to be performed, lest I consume cat poop.

Most food has mouse poop in it.

You're putting it in the wrong end.

Only 10 minutes ago, on my way home from work, I was thinking about this coffee. Astonishing.
 
2013-08-21 04:41:12 PM  
Yes, but you really have not lived until you have had your $40 cup of cat shiat coffee with a $50 cronut purchased off someone waiting in line.
 
2013-08-21 04:41:42 PM  
I wonder if you can get feed the cat poop beans back to the civet cats and get a double-cat-poop effect.  And then sell it to rich people at four times the price, of course.

Agrees.

Well double damn it...just found out I'm pg and have to stay away from coffee AND cat poop. This just isn't my day :-(
 
2013-08-21 05:12:43 PM  
All coffee tastes like shiat to me.
 
2013-08-21 05:19:40 PM  
How much does the guy get paid who has to sift through the cat shiat?

Does he wear a hazmat suit with a respirator?

I am colombian, I guess I could start eating coffee beans and crapping em out, give something else for Juan Valdez to shill for.

Didn't you RTFA?  You're supposed to feed your cat the coffee cherries.  Then you have to pick the seeds out of their poop.   Everybody knows that.

Dumbass.

Most people don't request it as an intentional additive.  :D

Wanna go into business selling "coffee beans eaten and then vomited up by pregnant women"? We could call it "morning-sickness mocha".

/wonders which two of "pg", "stay away from coffee", "stay away from cat poop" are the double-damn.

Trifecta in play for Bumblefark being told that.

How is Starbuck's not suing over this? They've been making coffee that tastes like shiat for years!
 
2013-08-21 06:05:02 PM  
Has anyone joked that coffee tastes like shiat yet? 'Cause I totally claim that joke.

Smart business plan, till I pop him out. And strange as it sounds...the coffee and poop were the double damn. As unfashionable as it is to admit...i like Starbucks, and I work with (among other things) cat poop :-\

Yeah.
Some Sauvignon Blancs (esp. New Zealanders) are notorious for sharing the organic compounds partially responsible for the smell of cat pee.
They don't taste like pee, though.
It's a Pavlov's dog thing for me (also w/ asphalt-smelling Pinotage) - when I smell that aroma, I'm salivating because I know the way the wine is going to taste, not because of the aroma in and of itself.

This sounds like a challenge or a bet among marketing people along the lines of "What's the most useless and outrageous product you can sell?"

"Ice to Eskimos?"
"Coffee made from beans picked out of civet sh•t?"
"Get people to put snail mucous on their faces?"
"Get people to buy smooth round rocks from you?"

It's both glorious and a bit sad.

Jebus. $17 for a bottle of white New Zealand plonk? Does New Brunswick have a 100% surtax on the cheap Quebecois and Ontario plonk?

I first thought this was a clever hoax designed to ridicule the coffee craze. Tragically, it is not. There really is a Luwak coffee. I know because I bought some from a specialty-coffee company in Atlanta. I paid $37.50 for two ounces of beans. I was expecting the beans to look exotic, considering where they'd been, but they looked like regular coffee beans. In fact, for a moment I was afraid that they were just regular beans, and that I was being ripped off.

Then I thought: What kind of world is this when you worry that people might be ripping you off by selling you coffee that was NOT pooped out by a weasel?

/Obscure?
 
2013-08-21 09:01:26 PM  
I always wonder how this came to be.  What bloke saw a cat eating a coffee cherry and said, "I wonder what it would taste like once it poos it out of its butt?"

Booze is expensive in Canada. Cheapest bottles are around $10 (compared to two-buck chuck in the US).

I'm in Canada. I can buy a decent Spanish or Portuguese wine for $8, and a good French wine for $17.

I'm in Ohio, one of the most expensive wine states in America (damned mandatory markup) and I'm finishing a $10.50 bottle of Ribero del Duero, so I'm getting a real kick...
