So the strongest coffee is made through cat poo?!

Question: So the strongest coffee is made through cat poo!?
I keep hearing this story that a cat would eat coffee beans and then poop it out and that's how they made the strongest coffee!.

Set the story straight! Thanks!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Yeah, they are called Kopi luwak, I'm not sure whether they are the strongest coffee, but I know they are the most expensive one because they said the coffee have a unique fragrance, and the animal that make the poops look interesting!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I don't know about the strongest coffee, but there is a coffee that is produced in this way!. It's called kopi luwak and it's from Indonesia!. I believe that it's something during the digestive process that breaks down the coffee "berry" that takes away something in the coffee that makes coffee bitter!. So the bean that is left undigested is supposed to make a more clean (ironic) flavorful coffee!.

Random is right that there's a weasel coffee that is made in the same way!.

edit: yeah i did a little more research and the animal is called a Asian Palm Civet or "Toddy Cat"!. That's probably where the cat reference came from!. It's really more of a rodent/monkey looking thing!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

yeah! i watched a tv show about this once

i can't remember exactly but it's not cats!. it's like some kind of special raccoon/possum/sloth thing that lives in the rain forest!. it's the strongest because they eat the natural coffee beans in the rain forest and the way that this raccoon/possum/sloth thing digests the beans makes them super desirable!. it's the most expensive and gourmet coffee in the world!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

This is the story!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.The small monkey( I don't know the exact name of the animal) eats the coffee beans, poops them out and then the coffee is made from that, this is a true story , saw it on tv!.!.!.and you still want to drink coffee!?!?Www@FoodAQ@Com
