Poop, there it is: New test for exotic civet coffee

Some coffee drinkers pooh-pooh the exotic and expensive coffee that comes from the Asian palm civet's poop, but it has become a tempting target for fraud.

Nice article.

It is missing something however.

It has not enabled the distinction between civet & human picking & eating berries & harvesting them from the poop, the human making the fake civet coffee however must remember not to chew(!).

This however is an excellent way to ensure that civet picked beans rather than handpicked coffee beans (normal coffee) ends up in the civet coffee bag.

There may also be a distinction between civet & the cheaper weasel coffee based on the metabolites produced. Proper weasel coffee however is almost carbonised and rather sour which makes it easily distinguishable.

Have a nice day: Ag
