Asian palm civets, (small, cat-like creatures found in south-east Asia), are kept in awful and horriic conditions- thousands are cramped in small cages, and force-fed a debilitating diet of coffee cherries used to make coffee harvested from civet fecal

I am so shocked that I can't imagine what kind of person wants to drink this. Obviously the same depraved monster that drinks tiger bone wine and wants rhino horn. I wish they could be just swept off the planet. The unbelievable cruelty these brutish thugs are prepared to force animals to endure for their perverted fetishes is criminal. They are fetishes - it is nothing to do with culture. If it is - it is a culture of which that country should be utterly ashamed. I could never visit any of these places.

Why would anyone want to drink anything that has passed through a civet's digestive system? True I would be quite happy to make someone like say Donald Trump have something that had passed through a civets digestive system though it would be a lot healthier for the civet than coffee beans and a lot more entertaining than coffee that costs $1200 a kilo

I think the original point of the coffee was that a civit in the wild would only eat the best coffee cherries, so the coffee beans in the feces would be very good quality (yeah, it IS gross!) Now this horrible factory farm of cruelly confined civits is just a profit center to get money from stupid rich people who wouldn't know good coffee in the first place, but they want the snob appeal of buying super expensive civit coffee.

i've heard of some oddball gourmet fads but this really takes the cake...or at least the coffee. best of my knowledge these are primarily carnivorous, so they would need to be truly desperate to consume plant matter of such limited nutritional value. the perfume industry finally found viable substitutes for civet and other animal musks (historically used to give fragrances body and staying power) - now THIS?

For many years they are used for perfumes. In a lot of perfumes is recommended to use strong smelling secretion from a gland near the anus, called civet. This is similar to musk from musk deer. In order to collect the civet, the glands are scraped, what the animal is a very painful process.
And now for coffee. And that all for to rich and spoiled people.

This is unjustifiable and so cruel. I despari! How DO you teach a culture that something is so terribly wrong? I It HAS to come from the top and usually governments don't listen and make new animal laws until they realise that it is going to hit their tourist trade! We just have to KEEP on and KEEP on bombarding their governments so as to put as much pressure on them as we can from the rest of the more enlightened coutnries of the world.

I hope Indonesia decides to take the progressive route to more humane treatment of animals. Remember that old saying that a nation is judged by how it treats it's most vulnerable. I think the age of Aquarius will bring many positive benefits to our animal companions and their non-tamed free kin.
The world would be so grand if we could learn to coexist without feeling entitled to dominate the creatures we share the earth with.

Where it said the civets were force fed the coffee cherries, I got the impression the civets were on an exclusive coffee cherry diet - couldn't be good for the health. And as for $600 for coffee (forgot how much coffee those six benjamins buy) seriously - coffee with an undertone of cat #2crap, I want in on a racket like that.
I have a cat, wonder if I could get some of that powdered garlic into her, then all I'd need to do would be gather the droppings, roll out with rolling pin, mold into little balls that fit into gel caps and sell as Vampire protection for the fearful. Come to think of it you could probably eliminate the cat crap & still claim "a family secret remedy" going back to the days of Vlad the Impaler.
