[Source] - In the lush hills of northern Thailand, a herd of 20 elephants is excreting some of the world’s most expensive coffee. Trumpeted as earthy in flavor and smooth on the palate, the exotic new brew is made from beans eaten by Thai elephants and plucked a day later from their dung. A gut reaction inside the elephant creates what its founder calls the coffee’s unique taste. Stomach turning or oddly alluring, this is not just one of the world’s most unusual specialty coffees. At $1,100 per kilogram ($500 per pound), it’s also among the world’s priciest.
For now, only the wealthy or well-traveled have access to the cuppa, which is called Black Ivory Coffee. It was launched last month at a few luxury hotels in remote corners of the world – first in northern Thailand, then the Maldives and now Abu Dhabi – with the price tag of about $50 a serving.
Dollars to donuts if you put this Elephant shit coffee on display at Starbucks right now yuppie assholes would camp out around the block for weeks just to get their hands on a batch. It’d be like those dweebs that wait outside Apple for like 3 weeks for the new iPhone except this would literally and figuratively be a much shittier product. Just a bunch of big dumb dickheads who think they love and know so much about something as trivial as fucking coffee sitting around reading Noam Chomsky and convincing themselves that drinking the feces from an Indian elephant is the hot fire in the cafe game. Hey losers why don’t you just pick up a Mr. Coffee machine, unload last night’s chinese food into a coffee filter, add 4 cups of water and then you can get high on your own supply for fucking free. Then you can brag to all your all idiot friends about how organic your roast is and sell it to them for $50 bucks a bag and make a nice little net profit for yourself. Idiots.
