Last night, Katrine left me in my hell of back pain to attend an invite-only event at Cafe Vita to drink crappy coffee -- literally.
At the "cupping" (the coffee snob's way of saying "coffee tasting") she drank Kopi Luwak, which is a coffee that is prepared using coffee cherries that have been eaten by an Asian Palm Civet (small monkey-cat hybrid), partially digested, and harvested from its feces.
In fewer words, Katrine drank coffee brewed from beans crapped out by a monkey-cat.
Kopi Luwak is the world's most expensive coffee, retailing between $120 and $600 per pound. That's some expensive shit.
