    Good Coffee????

    Would you pay $175 for a pound of coffee beans that had passed through the backside of a furry mammal in Indonesia?

    Some coffee lovers wanting to treat themselves to something special are lapping it up.

    Kopi Luwak beans from Indonesia are rare and expensive, with a unique taste and aroma enhanced by the digestive system of palm civets, nocturnal tree-climbing creatures about the size of a large house cat.

    So far, most of the orders have been from California.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I saw this on TV last year, they made the coffee and stopped people in the street with a free cup. The people drank the coffee, commented on how great it is. Then the rub came, they told them how much it cost and where it originated from.

    I thought one lady was going to be sick, another guy said something to the effect of Kewl, and another person said: I would not buy this coffee in this lifetime.......

    I heard it is VERY good, if you can get over where it originated from..........I can't though.............just the thought of brewing coffee beans that came from the backside of an animal, just does not have the same appeal as a coffee that does not.

    As long as I have access to Community coffee, I'm good. No other brand will do.

    Never heard of Community Coffee, is it a brand or a co-op or a store.

    We tend to be a Maxwell House and Folgers family and the odd time picking coffee up at Second Cup or Starbucks........

    But apparently this coffee is excellent...........sort of like The Truffles of Coffee

    Thanks Toby, actually I may inquire if they can ship this coffee to Canada, I like the idea of supporting the Louisana area because of Katrina and I also like the fact that it is a old family company.

    The price seems reasonable, not much more then in Canada especially with the exchange rate.

    My favorite Community Coffee is the Hotel Blend...I thought Community was the only brand of coffee until I moved out of Louisiana
