Coffee derived from the faeces of the civet cat has spawned a cruel industry. Will sustainable production leave a better taste?

NO--the production of this idiotic coffee must stop. People are so lame--what's wrong with the reg coffee anyway. It boggles the mind how so many actually buy+consume this ptid coffee.

The cruelty these animals go through it must stop ! How can anyone drink coffee made of an animals poo, is amazing. These beautiful animals deserve to be free and not tortured any more.

It's a must-have for the 1%, a luxury no one needs and certainly not at the expense of these animals. Even by make it even more exclusive by "harvesting" it the old fashion way: collecting the droppings from wild civet cats from underneath the coffee plants. But as there is no way of regulating it, and man's greed unlimited, people will always capture and force feed the poor animals to get more kopi luwak. But as banning seldom works because full control and regulation are never attainable, perhaps producing kopi luwak sustainable is the only alternative to save a few animals from a horrendous life and their numbers up in the wild.

I avoid everything that has to do with animal exploitation. I don't want to be responsible for animal cruelty.

Does anyone really need this coffee? It is coffee for those with money who care not for the suffering of animals. Can it be done sustainably? the fact is that civets must be in captivity it would seem so it is a moot point whether it is sustainable or not. people do not need coffee made in this manner and civets should not be used so that people can have fancier and more expensive coffee.

Doo Brew? You'd think the 1% would only drink their own, as they claim it does not stink. But, these folks do require adventurous thrills. Us common folk get our daily dose from them. It gives a whole new meaning to brand names like, "Taster's Choice", "Chockful-'O-Nuts", and "Dunkin' Donuts". On the serious side, it's one more excuse to over-feed the farmed civets, so they'll be more prolific. One can only hope that after all animals are extinct, that they'll take a liking to "We The People's" droppings, for they'll be sure that we're fed adequately enough to earn our keep. Thanks Cal.
