Kalau Indonesia punya kopi luwak, Thailand pun memproduksi kopi mereka sendiri. Seperti yang kita ketahui, kopi luwak terbuat dari kotoran hewan luwak yang diolah kembali. Nah, di Thailand, ada kopi yang terbuat dari kotoran gajah. (If Indonesia has civet coffee, Thailand also produces its own coffee. As we know, civet coffee is made ​​from reprocessed civet’s feces. Well, in Thailand, there’s a coffee made of elephant’s feces.)

Kopi ini diberi nama ‘Black Ivory’ atau Gading Hitam. Proses pembuatannya hampir mirip dengan kopi luwak. Gajah yang telah mengonsumsi biji kopi tentunya akan mengeluarkan kotoran. Nah, kotoran itulah yang kemudian dijadikan bahan pembuatan kopi Black Ivory(This coffee is named Black Ivory or ‘Gading Hitam’. The manufacturing process is similar to civet coffee. The elephants consume the coffee beans and poop out feces. Well, the feces are used as the basic ingredients for Black Ivory coffee.)

Tentu saja kotoran ini harus diolah kembali agar higienis. Setelah melalui pengolahan, baru kopi ‘kotoran gajah’ ini dapat disajikan. (The feces have to be reprocessed first to make it hygienic. After the feces are reprocessed, the ‘elephant’s feces’ coffee is ready to be served.)

“Ketika gajah makan kopi, asam lambung mereka  memecah protein dalam kopi, yang merupakan faktor kunci penentu tingkat kepahitan,” ujar Blake Dinkin kepada firstnews.co.uk. Harganya pun tergolong mahal, hampir sama dengan kopi luwak asal Indonesia. Berani meminumnya, kids? (“When an elephant eats coffee, its stomach acid breaks down the protein in coffee, which is a key factor in bitterness,” said Blake Dinkin to firstnews.co.uk. The price is quite expensive. It’s about the same price as Indonesia’s civet coffee. Dare to drink, kids?)
