black gold

The NYT has an article up about Kopi Luwak, coffee beans that have been eaten, digested, and evacuated by civets. I predict several things. First, we will see a profusion of super specialty coffee companies that charge huge amounts of money for this. Second, they'll mostly be bogus. Third, I will seek them out anyways. Fourth, as per Mitchell & Webb, we can expect that the Asian Palm Civet will face few threats of extinction anytime soon.
