For Culinary Adventurers:
Luwak Poop Coffee

A good cup of coffee is hard to find. Now you can have Kopi Luwak, the rarest, most expensive cup of coffee - if you can bear to hear how it's cultivated.

In the coffee plantations in Indonesia, the luwak, a catlike animal, eats only the ripest coffee berries. Natives follow this critter around, picking the beans from its feces. Their "harvest" sells to coffee connoisseurs for $75 a quarter-pound, or $5 a cup. That's a bit more than Starbucks, but Nate Root of Raven's Brew says it has a "chocolaty, earthy" quality "that rich folks in Japan and Britain just love."

Tea anyone???
