Out of curiosity, I ordered a cup of hot, dripped coffee from this Vietnamese gourmet coffee house located at Liang Court. You can read more about Trung Nguyen coffee here on their official website.
It tasted very good – fragrant and robust! In addition, serving Asian coffee, Trung Nguyen stands out from the dime-a-dozen Starbucks-clones serving relatively similar items.
Though I didn’t try it, they also serve the famous Kopi Luwak (weasel coffee) which is made from coffee beans that has been eaten and passed through the digestive system of the animal, undigested.
The resulting beans, when washed and sun-dried, undergo a remarkable change to produce a uniquely smooth and delicious flavour, often described as the best tasting coffee in the world. This could be because the weasels would choose only the best and ripest beans to eat. Also, the beans may have been modified by enzyme reactions on their journey.
The idea of drinking coffee made from weasels’ shit seems disgusting, but my curiosity is really piqued, and I will definitely go back and try this shit (pun intended) next time. 🙂
