Kopi Luwak

With all the talk about bucket lists, there came out a book about 103 Things Not to Do Before You Die.
I found the article in The Independent and if you're a coffee lover, youve gotta try this. Just for kicks. 

"Kopi Luwak is allegedly the finest – and at £15 for 50g certainly the most expensive – coffee known to humanity. It's made from beans that have been eaten by and passed through the digestive tract of the Asian palm civet (a racoon-like mammal) and hand- collected from the rainforest floor on islands in the Indonesian archipelago. Connoisseurs claim it is unusually smooth with a unique musty flavour. There's also a certain James Bond appeal to its exclusivity that helps ensure it maintains a high place on lists of things to buy before you die."
