    After some of the critters in Australia, bugs and vermin are like pets.

    Look up how they make Luwak coffee, it's scary but it actually tastes really good!

    yeah I have tried Luwak in Ubud; quite smooth even smoother than Hawaiian or Jamaican coffee which is rated as pretty mild. The plantation I visited in Bali allowed me to see with my eyes the “working conditions” of these animals (looks like a cross between a cat and racoon). As you would expect being coopted up in tiny cages and fed coffee fruits all day they seem irritable and kinda strung out. - muddy

    If it was still done the "traditional" way, I'd try it. But it sounds like they cage the civets and force feed them beans. No meow. :(

    Yes I have to admit it turned me off to see them in cages. I never bought any more coffee from them after I tried it the first time.

    Back in Sydney! Just stepped off the plane a few hours ago from a hellish overnight flight suffering from sleep deprivation and time zone confusion. Had to deal with a s##tstorm of emails and problems at work. It's not going to be an easy day today. My holiday mood has evaporated and I'm Mr Grumpy now....... I'd dearly like to go back!

    Well then, my wish for you is that you get to do exactly that as soon as possible. Take care and illegitimus non carborundum.
