No mention of the fact the philipine coffee is going to be low-grown 
robusta and liberica, not arabica, so it is npt going to taste good 
anyway. No mention that caging a free-roaming nocturnal animal is 
cruel. no mention that civets prefer, above all, to eat chickens, not 
fruit. no mention that any cupper from the specialty industry would 
reject the coffee in a blind cupping.

George Howell pinned it years ago:

Kopi Luwak; "Coffee from a-holes, for a-holes..."
