I was thinking that the various enzymes in that creature's digestive tract could be chemically simulated and used to treat the coffee beans in a similar manner. Slap a 180 dollar price tag to certify exclusivity (so important to the rich class) , they would buy it. Hold some blind taste tests too in case it is close. Pepper the testing crowd with a reknowned sommelier or professional nose, and of course a patent and a Starbucks exclusivity contract.

If not, maybe a factory zoo for a shitload (pun on purpose) of the asian palm civets with a regular diet of coffee beans. Give them cable tv so peta is not riled. Maybe they have just a 6 month deployment to the spa (zoo is so negative) then back into the wild. Mating services could be encouraged, to assure reproductive litters that will one day come to the spa's suites (cages sound negative) to perpetually poop profit. Kind of a golden egg, no? What shade is civet shit?

I was joking, but these guys aren't; factory civets, abused like all factory livestock.

The scam is huge, most is factory not wild. Luwaks poached from the rainforest in cages and abused, for exclusive clients aka exploitive humans.

All the more reason to seek a synthetic luwak digestive formula.

In the meantime Kopi Luwak is to palm civets as blood diamonds are to humans.
