Kopi Luwak, or what some call "cat poop coffee" is coming to Chicago.
The process begins when civets, or mongoose-like mammals with slender cat-like bodies, eat coffee cherries, which contains a coffee bean inside of a round, tangy fruit.
Civets eat and digest the skins of the cherries but pass the beans, which are harvested from the creature's fecal matter, washed and readied for human consumption. The way enzymes act upon the beans during digestion help create the flavor.
AND GUESS HOW MUCH THEY COST!??? $12.50 for a six-ounce cup!!!
You can find it at Nibbles and Nosh in Rogers Park.
