Say What?!? World’s Most Expensive Coffee Is Harvested From Elephant Poop

You’d never suspect that cup of coffee that runs $70 is made from elephant feces. But that’s exactly what you will get with the world’s most expensive coffee.

Rarely do things that cost this much money literally come from poo. But such is the case with the world’s most expensive coffee, because it comes from elephant dung.

Black Ivory Coffee will run you about $70 per serving and is created in Thailand in the Golden Triangle. The coffee is made by feeding fruit mash with the beans to elephants, who digest and poop out the unroasted beans.

It takes three days for the elephants to digest the beans. After they have laid their droppings, workers don gloves and carefully harvest the beans from the poop. They then clean and roast the beans. To put into perspective the harsh price tag, 30 pounds of harvested beans will only produce about 1 pound of coffee.

The reason elephants are used is because they are an herbivore. When they digest the beans, they help to weaken the cellulose and make the beans sugary by imparting the fruit in the coffee pulp. Basically, the beans slowly ferment in the elephants’ bellies and reduce the bitterness of the coffee while making it sweeter.

Tasters compare the taste to sweet, soft or a combination of coffee and tea. Some say it’s fruity. Others say that it is chocolaty. Nobody says it tastes like an elephant’s bum.

If you think that’s strange, other coffee is made from poop, too.

One brand uses the Asian Toddy cat to ferment the beans, collecting them from the dung and cleaning and roasting them, selling the brewed cups for about $15.

Camocim Jacu Bird Coffee uses bird poo to bring out the flavor, and runs about $3,000 for a 130-pound bag.

Kopi luwak coffee is made from wild civet poop and retails for about $3,000 per kilogram.

Regardless the taste, whatever happened to enjoying a good old fashion cup of Kona coffee? No poop is required.

  9. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
