Kopi Luwak is just plain nasty. Scientists in Florida have studied the effects of the civet cat’s digestive enzymes and have discovered a method to replicate the fermentation/degradation process that goes down.

It could also mean that the process could occur with some actual, honest to goodness high priced quality specialty coffee cherry.
