Philippine farmers cash in on civet coffee dung


Recommended Posts

TheMatrix

My buddy that lives in Las Vegas, but owns a large parcel of land in Carcar just sent me this article and comment. He's looking to do something with his land. I believe he is growing mahogany trees now.

 

I could raise these on my land and feed them raw coffee beans. Problem is finding the breeding stock.

I don't know anything about it, but was wondering if anyone on this forum can shed some light on this topic.

From good old Wiki.....

Kopi Luwak, also known as caphe cut chon (fox-dung coffee) in Vietnam and kape alamid in the Philippines, is coffee that is prepared using coffee cherries that have been eaten and partially digested by the Asian Palm Civet, then harvested from its fecal matter.[3][4] The civets digest the flesh of the coffee cherries but pass the beans inside, leaving their stomach enzymes to go to work on the beans, which adds to the coffee's prized aroma and flavor.[3] Only around 1,000 pounds (450 kg) of civet coffee make it to the market each year, and 1 pound (0.45 kg) can cost up to $600 in some parts of the world and about $100 a cup in others.

 

If you don't like the idea of battery chickens then you won't be drinking this coffee.

The Civets are kept in banks of tiny cages so thier shit is easy to collect.

Since its involving wildlife animals, please tell your friend to contact the DENR and DA for details for keeping and breeding them.

I was really surprised when I went with Guenther to his wholesale supplier to buy supplies for his restaurant there were bags of civet coffee sitting on the counter for sale !! I'd never seen it for sale before.

 

Supposedly the coffee that has been "processed" by wild civets is better than the ones from caged civets, because like juan valdez they only pick the finest beans !

All civets are "wild" but not "in the wild".

Even if kept in a cage they are still wild civets.

It's just a play on words.

Like canned fruit marked "No added sugar" when they are packed in fruit juice (just as much sugar).

Yes, I agree. The food industry is very talented with their play on words.

 

How about Jollibee's statement regarding their hamburger patties: "Made with 100% Beef"

I guess if 5% of that patty is 100% pure beef, they can justify truth in advertising.

OK mr smarty pants, let me rephrase that then : "" Supposedly the coffee that has been "processed" by out in the wild wild civets is better than the ones from caged wild civets"

 

feel better now ?? :rofl:

 

the difference in the coffee quality has nothing to do with the civets living conditions, but rather in the choice of berries that the out in the wild wild civets have ! Its not the civets digestive system that is the determining factor but rather the quality of the berries [ coffee beans]

If you want to try animal-processed coffee, you can get South American coffee that is processed with various birds instead of civets. The taste is similar and its much less expensive. You can usually special order animal-processed green coffee beans from websites like Sweet Maria's or Coffee Bean Corral. Sweet Maria's will ship internationally, but not sure about CBC.

I wonder what the brand name of that Coffee is,EL GUANO MILD, or CAFE KAKABANA. CAFE AVIOLA GUANO sounds also nice... :dance:

Now that would be a livelihood program. ow, what an idea. Similar to the "FAIR" coffee program.

 

"Say not to shit, but have a cup !"

"All our processing employees are 100% guaranteed former Columbian drug mules."

'They give a shit for your morning delight !"

"A cup a day to keep the Cocain away !"
