Weasel Coffee

I've heard of kopi luwak, which is coffee made from beans eaten and excreted by civet cats, but I didn't know there was such a thing as weasel coffee, which sounds just as delicious.
This coffee is first eaten by weasels which then regurgitate it; no one knows why they do this but it is then collected by locals in remote forest areas and then cleaned and roasted.

It has a unique rich chocolatey flavour and is best served as an espresso with a dash of condensed milk, just as they do in Vietnam.
The company that sells this, Edible, also sells canned crocodile meat in curry sauce and reindeer paté. Link
