Hi, I received my latest order including a 20 pound bag of Monkey Blend. The 20 pound bag is an impressive sight. It looks like it is much more than four five pound bags. I also got a pound of Aged Sumatra Pwani Mandheling. One of the cats chewed open a corner of the bag and at least a half an ounce is gone. Since we have twelve cats, I have no idea which one(s) ate the beans. Must be a good sign though. Jim Gundlach roasting over wood and welding chain saw chains - oops - off topic

You can easily identify the culprit-it will be the one bouncing off the walls and acting very frisky-remember the story about how the goat herd in Ethopia was supposed to have discovered coffee by observing the behavior of his goats after having eaten the sacred bean. Have a friend with 10 cats whom I got to start roasting his own coffee from SM-he too really likes Monkey Blend-hmmmm-must be a connection.
Well this brings up a question: Isn't there a coffee in Asia that is supposed to be re-claimed from squirrel poop? A friend from Vietnam once gave e a cup of bad coffee that he claimed was the best coffee you could get because of the way the squirrels had processed the beans. He called it squirrel sh?t coffee. Time to start digging through the litter box! ;0) /monty At 04:55 PM 12/8/00 -0800, you wrote: <Snip>

luwak... Not a squirrel, but close. My girlfriend always teazes me about getting some luwak coffee... Now there is a job I want to have, reclaiming the coffee beans... tim Monty Harris wrote: <Snip>
No wonder I couldn't find info on the subject! Never heard of a luwak. A quick search turned up a bunch of hits, such as:http://www.fonz.org/zoogoer/zg1996/luwak.htm/monty At 08:56 AM 12/18/00 -0800, you wrote: <Snip>
