I am very intrigued by those "chocolate and hot pepper" drinks y'all have been mentioning, and thinking I'd like to try that. Any recipes you might care to share, here or by PM?





I think this was popular in Mexico City in the earlier 15th Century, but I had my sample from a friend who brought some bitter chocolate back with her from Columbia. I, too, wanted more, but there was none left to have, and she didn't know how to find it.

heyy ....yup it is the Sumatran Kopi Luwak which sells for $600 for a little less than a kg. that's because less than 227kg of this premium coffee is available every year, the beans collected as they are from the excrement of the Sumatran Civet cat which lives in the mountain ranges of Irian Jaya in Indonesia. the civet climbs into the coffee trees and eats the ripest coffee cherries it can find. eventually, these are digested and reappear in the cat's excrement, after which they are gathered by the locals and sold as coffee...gross!!!

i am too happy with my Nescafe..

Far be it from me to try to explain TEd, but the pun is on "literally," as discussed somewhere or other here recently, an "kitty *litter*" which house-bound kitty cats are compelled, by their masters, to poop in.

I don't doubt that kopi luwak exists but geographically, this seems most improbable as Sumatra and Irian Jaya are at the opposite ends of Indonesia. In US terms it would be like saying collected from the Appalachian mountain cat in Alaska.

Also the Wallace Line separating typically Asian wildlife from typically Australian wildlife runs through the middle of Indonesia between Kalimantan and Sulawesi in the North and Bali and Lombok in the South. Although there is a transitional zone, Sumatra and Irian are well to the West and East of it respectively.
