Offal is so two years ago. Foie gras is old news. Bacon has jumped the shark. What’s left for the adventurous eater? Coffee made from cat feces, of course! Reuters reports (via the most charming video ever) that the hot new trend in caffeinated beverages is coffee made from the droppings of the civet, a cat-like mammal. With the notable exception of the mayo-gerita, we try not to judge the food choices of others, so, although we personally would be wary to drink a derivative of what we can find in a litter box, more power to those who do. We suspect that cannot top the sheer perfection of Reuters’ headline, “Cat Pooh Coffee Cost a Lot”, but we will do our best to supplement it.
