1) From: Steve
Anyone else see this?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gb13iFRYIvAI've never had this stuff but I find it difficult to believe it could
live up to all the hype.  I wonder if what he got was real.

2) From: Brett Mason
I received some as a gift - just a micro amount suitable for one cup...
Tasted earthy, dirty, like a Sumatra often tastes....
Didn't much care for it, but love to pieces the gracious and wonderful
gift from a dear friend!
Ought to try it, see what you think...

I've tasted Cat Poop Coffee also. What I got was very good coffee though
certainly not worth the cost compared with some of the stellar Indo beans
available from SM. It was fun to try and I can say I've had it. Probably
won't buy any in the future.
cheers,
Scott

If Tom ever runs across some and puts it up for sale, I might
partake.  Otherwise, I'm not sure I would know of a trustworthy source.

5) From: Larry Johnson
I was lucky enough to win some in a Tradition Offering, otherwise I
would have never have tried it. I am *so* glad I didn't pay the going
rate for it. Tasted like dirt from a damp basement, brewed in
cardboard. Didn't care for it.

Herman's Boy Coffee is just 11 miles from me. It's a good shop, but then 
I have no reason to shop there anymore, although they are the biggest 
distributor of Scanpans in West Michigan. My brother's kids attend 
school in Rockford so maybe I can talk him into buying me a cup of the 
poo coffee... I'll let you know.

I've had the real stuff and it's bad to mediocre at best. Mostly =
robusta. The beans in the video looked too good. Maybe these cats are =
being held captiveamong some arabica trees, I don't know. If you want =
some greens given the digestive treatment, wait until Tom gets some more =
of the Jacu Bird Brazilizn coffee. Pretty good stuff actually!

In my experience (twice) it doesn't live up to the hype at all... like a lot of coffees: JBM, generic Konas (that are usually a blend) etc, etc.  It's disappointing that everybody seems to know about "that one cat poop coffee" but almost nobody knows about La Esmerelda (as far as customers that come into the shops I have worked at).  Same thing with how everybody seems to know about FT but almost no one knows about direct trade...  yay for the media.
