It sounds rather strange but the coffee is not actually made from animal dung. The beans however, have been collected from the dung of a civet cat. The Asian palm civet lives among the plantations of south east Asia and eats only the best coffee berries. Their digestive process breaks down the flesh of fruit and the beans are then collected from the dung before being washed and roasted. The resulting coffee sells for a rather expensive £50 a cup. I’m not sure whether I would fancy it.
