Thai hotel brews up coffee from elephant dung

Thai hotel brews up coffee from elephant dung

BANGKOK (AFP) - For those who like their coffee with a strong nose Thailand could be the ideal destination, after a blend made from elephant dung was put on sale by an upmarket hotel chain. The Black Ivory blend, made from coffee beans digested and excreted by Thai elephants, is billed as producing a particularly smooth cup. But it is not cheap, with Anantara Hotels saying the "naturally refined" coffee costs a staggering US$1,100 (S$1342) per kg - making it one of the most expensive blends in the world. "Research indicates that during digestion, the enzymes of the elephant break down coffee protein," the Thai-based hotel group, which is selling the pungent brew at around US$50 for two cups, said in a statement sent to AFP on Thursday.
