civet coffee

You can soon drink coffee made of cat poop in Toronto

Vancouver-based company Doi Chaang Coffee is bringing cat poop coffee to Toronto. Yes, you read that right.

This unique coffee gets its name because it's collected from the droppings of the wild civet, a cat like creature found in Thailand. The cats eat coffee beans but don't digest them. They remain in the cat for about a day and undergo some sort of fermentation before they're defecated and collected by farmers.

According to Doi Chang it's among the most highly sought after coffee in the world because of the distinct flavours it acquires from the enzymes in the civet's digestive tract. It's also among the most expensive.

If you dare, you'll be able to taste this cat poop brew at this year's Toronto Food & Drink Market that runs form April 8 to 10.

Can't wait until April? You may be able to find unroasted bags at The Green Beanery and Pusateri's.
