From an article by Dave Barry:

".........this coffee is named for the luwak, a "member of the weasel family" that lives on the Island of Java and eats coffee berries; as the berries pass through the luwak, a "natural fermentation" takes place, and the berry seeds -- the coffee beans -- come out of the luwak intact. The beans are then gathered, washed, roasted and sold to coffee connoisseurs." Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

I'd probably drink it once for the story. If it tasted good and wasn't expensive I might continue

Sure. There must be a reason people have it and continue to have it... I hope.

they're both washed and heated
i don't see a downside, at least sanitation-wise

Dave Barry said it tasted pretty nasty.

I did not answer the question, but I found it very interesting. As to answer the question at hand, I like Daein, would probably consider trying it, though I would not want to know what keeps the seeds from being digested, because something like that could not be too healthy for you.
7 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 1/18/14 - 4:23:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't, because I don't like coffee.

I've heard it's delicious, and would love to try it, even at $30 a cup.
IF it wasnt for the fact that these beans do not come from free luwaks living in the wild, bt from animals being held captive under terrible conditions

they are??????

I would definitely try it, but I'm a huge coffee lover. It doesn't really bother me that luwak pooped it out.
7 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 1/20/14 - 2:55:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Willing to drink it (if the animals aren't mistreated) - yes.

Willing to pay for it - no.
7 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 1/22/14 - 9:53:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
Even if it wasn't poop, I still don't like coffee.

So NO!

This. Though I'm sure I'd not pay $30 for a single cup.
