Some Things are Just Ridiculous
Via the Detroit Free Press: Elephant dung coffee goes for $50 a pop
Stomach turning or oddly alluring, this is not just one of the world’s most unusual specialty coffees. At $1,100 per kilogram ($500 per pound), it’s also among the world’s priciest.
Forget the poop part for the moment: what could possibly make coffee worth that much? Not to sound like a curmudgeon, but if you are paying that much for coffee, you may have too much money (or, at least, a bizarre set of priorities).
(However, the photo accompanying the story is amusing).
