Topic: That Darn Cat (2 msgs / 43 lines)
1) From: John Blumel
Just happened to be reading through Tom's robusta reviews (Do I know 
how to have a good time, or what?) and noticed the following from the 
review of the Uganda Robusta "Esco Farms" 18+ Screen:
"...this cup reminds me quite distinctly of the notorious Kopi Luwak 
when brewed in a French press. Not surprising since the Luwak is 
comprised largely of Robusta from the samples I have tested. It also 
looks much like the Luwak, which sort of makes me wonder..."

Are you sure you weren't reading his review of the commercial
grade Robusta by mistake?  I'm certain it tastes like sh!t..  ;-)
*jk*  <- Just in case there are some die hard Kopi Luwak fans
          out there...  Heh, I thought it was a myth...
