One of the stuff I asked the husband to bring from his recent visit to the Philippines is coffee beans that have been eaten and excreted whole by civets called alamid. I have read about these coffee beans in many blogs and have wanted to try them.
The jar describes the brewed coffee:
- Macchiato: smooth, sweet, and lingering dark chocolate flavor with a fruity aroma
- Espresso: bold, rich, fully developed flavors swirling around your upper and lower tongue, no negative aftertaste.
I never thought that someday I'll be drinking coffee that a wild pesky animal has eaten and pooped out but now I have and I can assure you, this coffee doesn't taste like sh*t.:-)
Here is the Coffee Alamid website.
