Elephant Poop Coffee - Chang Poo Joe

Inspired by the ancient cat poop coffee, some entrepreneurs in Thailand are experimenting with Elephant poo joe.  Hmmm... sounds exotic.  Hey, the Thai word for elephant is "chang."  Chang Poo Joe.  Nice ring to it.

Running coffee through an elephant apparently takes out the bitterness.  But I like bitterness so much I drink cafe du monde coffee ($12 at Metropolitan Markets, $5 a Lam's), which is cut with chicory, a technique learned during the War of Northern Aggression when there was a coffee shortage in NOLA. No thanks on Chang Poo Joe, but here is cafe du monde, if you like it bitter, and black, like my heart.

Feel free to forward this by email to three of your friends.
