It kills me that they label this as breaking news. I have seen this story at least once a year for probably the last 7 or 8 years. How is that breaking news? [/rant]

I would try this coffee. I would not pay for it, but if someone offered it to me then I would happily try it.

Seems to me the breaking news portion is the $10 a cup as a fund raiser. The event their selling it at is next week.

Why is that breaking news though? A bomb going off at a school is breaking news. A fund raiser hardly qualifies, IMO, as breaking news.

Oh no, not this canard again.

Someone has to trust that this stuff actually passed thorough some civet cat's digestive system (I clicked on the thingy but got no where, but I remember the story).

I will come up with some beans that are guarnateed to have come out of the back end of any animal you want. And it will make a fine coffee, I will gladly certify them.

Save your money.

This story comes up every few years. Move on, nothing to be seen here folks.

I think your definition of breaking news and internet video may be different. Heck everything Britney Spears does is breaking news, why shouldn't a worthy cause helped by cat poop?

I feel the same about the Britney stuff. Nothing she has ever done or will ever do will qualify as breaking news.
