1) From: Greg Owen
Now we have a new, different dumb "Kopi Luwak" post!
"Researchers from the University of Hong Kong examined 25 animals 
representing eight species in a live animal market in southern China and 
found the SARS virus in all six masked palm civets they sampled..."http://www.boston.com/news/daily/23/sars_warning.htmLet the stupidity begin...
"How far should I roast Kopi Luwak to kill the SARS virus?  Is full city 
enough or do I need vienna roast..."

The palm civet cat, Paguma larvata  is a different animal than the 
coffee pooping Luwak, Paradoxurus hermaphroditus.  There is no reason 
to worry about SARS from your kopi.
