This Coffee Tastes Like Elephant Poop and Costs $50 A Cup – Not Kidding

Not everyone asks specifically for coffee from Thailand  I’ve never heard of it.  Or should I say HERD of it?  Herd, as in elephant herd, and “herd” coincidentally rhymes with something else.  (boy, am I digging myself deep here). 

Anyway, this is true.  According to Newser.com, there is a new coffee called Black Ivory.  Here is how it’s made, in a nutshell

 When an elephant eats coffee, its stomach acid breaks down the protein found in coffee, which is a key factor in bitterness.

 

Elephant Dung Coffee Produces The World's Most Expensive Cup

So in other words, the elephants eat the beans and it is taken out of their –ahh–poop the next day.  This of course is assuming that the elephant has regular habits.  If not, Jamie Lee  Curtis is brought in.

This stuff (I almost said something else) works out to be $50 per cup.  And I thought Starbucks was gouging at $7.00 a cup, which they now offer.
