This time it’s not a message. It’s the spambot’s name:
Catshit Coffee Provider In Singapore.
As a non-coffee drinker, I thought this was some sort of joke. But it turns out that it’s not:
New York’s crappiest cup of coffee is also its most expensive.
At $30 a cup, “Kopi Luwak” is made from beans collected from the droppings of a small, cat-like mammal called a civet…
The pricey coffee originated in Indonesia and the Philippines, where folks noticed the civets eating coffee berries, collected their droppings and picked out the beans.
Coffee consultant Michael Peter, 26, of Tamp Tamp Coffee Lab in New York, said the cats’ stomach acids produce a smooth-tasting brew…Because of its unique processing, a pound can cost from $340 to $400…
Ben Lieberman, 28, a coffee shop manager from Williamsburg, Brooklyn, was turned off after the first sip.
“It has a dirty taste to it,” Lieberman said. “It’s heavy. It’s like, ‘Dude you just crapped in my coffee.’”
No, not the Onion. There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
