Monkey poo

I have a lot of Brians and/or Bryans in my life so they have to have some sort of identifying adjective name. Strangely enough most of the Brian/Bryans in my life come from work, just a little side note for you there. Farm Loan Brian is funny, he's a smart ass, and he makes work enjoyable. He just so happens to be my trainer for the Farm Loan Officer Training (FLOT) program, but I usually only see him once a month.

When I walked into the office a couple weeks ago, he looks up and says "Would you like some monkey poo coffee?"......"um, what?! (He has finally lost it, on his way to the nuthouse, I thought)" And he follows with the following.....confirmed by the Google Machine I might add.

Kopi Luwak is a very expensive coffee that is made from coffee beans that are passed through the digestive system of an Indonesian animal, but it's more like a cat than a monkey. (For my purposes and gag reflex, I'll continue to say somehow seems less repulsive to me.) Apparently, people who harvest the beans (a shitty job, if you ask me) don't really have to pick through the cat litter to get the beans. The animal processes the beans and excretes them whole, unscratched and without poo. Apparently, passing through the digestive tract gives the beans a unique flavor. No shit!

Crap-puccino anyone?


  1. WHAT?! Why would anyone drink this??....interesting.
