No coffee is worth this cruelty! Humans find more ways to abuse animals. Disgusted!! My heart goes out to the civets.

That's disgusting! I remember hearing about this repulsive coffee and wondering why a cat (carnivore) would ever freely choose to eat such a thing and thought there was something awfully OFF about the story.

While this is both gross and cruel how many people are aware that in many areas of the world the people growing coffee for YOU in America can't afford a real cup of coffee? That's right-people all over Central America drink instant coffee because that's what they can afford. Yes, they grow your delicious coffee but can't afford to drink the real thing, only instant. Think about THAT the next time you are enjoying your $5 cup of coffee at Starbucks.

Urgh. Please buy FairTrade organic coffee only, so that you donīt contribute to this gruesome crimes.

Posted. Frankly I think the concept is disgusting and over rated. When I buy coffee it has to be Fair Trade and Bird Friendly.
