Coffee made from elephant dung actually sells for $50 a poop, er, pop at some luxe hotels.
Black Ivory Coffee, which was launched last month at luxury hotels in Thailand, the Maldives and Abu Dhabi, sells for a whopping $50 a serving, or $500 per pound.
But more noteworthy than the inflated price is the curious process behind this exotic new brew, which involves pure Arabica beans being eaten by elephants and then plucked a day later from their dung, resulting in what some say is the world’s smoothest cuppa.
“When an elephant eats coffee, its stomach acid breaks down the protein found in coffee, which is a key factor in bitterness,” said Blake Dinkin, who has spent $300,000 developing the coffee. “You end up with a cup that’s very smooth without the bitterness of regular coffee.”
