That better be some good coffee

Apparently, you can make some mighty fine coffee from the droppings of civets.  These animals poke around coffee plantations, eat the choicest berries, and then pass them through their digestive tract more or less intact.  Savvy people then rummage through the dung, extract the beans, take off the outer layer, and then roast.  This coffee, because it has been partially digested, has less caffeine and is less bitter than regular joe.  And because it is so rare, it sells for $600 dollars a pound; the British Royal Family can afford and enjoy it.  Other places sell it for $30 a cup!
