Elephant Dung Coffee Thailand

December 9, 2012 by  

Elephant Dung Coffee Thailand, Wonder abounds: Scientists discover fantastic oddities occurring in deep space. Nature presents marvels that we can observe only with eyes glistening and mouth agape. People behave in enigmatic ways, causing us to constantly question what it is we thought we knew about the human condition.

And then there’s this, from the Associated Press:

“GOLDEN TRIANGLE, Thailand-In the lush hills of northern Thailand, a herd of 20 elephants is excreting some of the world’s most expensive coffee. The exotic new brew is made from beans eaten by Thai elephants and plucked a day or two later from their dung. A gut reaction inside the elephant creates what its founder calls the coffee’s unique taste. This is not just one of the world’s most unusual specialty coffees. At $500 a pound, it’s also among the world’s priciest . . ..”

Okay. Now that you’ve gotten over your initial shock, and you’ve come up with appropriate names for this coffee (mentioned later in the article: crapaccino), does anything about this concept cause you, as it did me, to frown, figuratively stroke your chin, and mutter, “Wait a minute”?
