I have a friend who roasts her own beans. Me...I buy beans once in awhile from a local coffee house where the owner roasts the beans on the premises. I grind them there, too. I have a Capresso grinder in a box in my garage. I don't feel like having one more appliance in my kitchen. I cook a bit from scratch for myself once or twice a week. That's as much of a domestic goddess as I want to be at this point in my life. I drink two or three cups of high test in the morning and don't know how I would get out the door without it. I didn't drink coffee at all until I was 29. After my son was born, I needed a pick-me-up in the morning and fell into my husband's coffee habit.

I have not tried this and have been told that the results are quite inconsistent -- others, however, swear by it:

Any coffee addicts lovers try this one yet?
Kopi luwak (Indonesian [ˈkopi ˈlu.ak]), or civet coffee, is coffee made from the beans of coffee berries which have been eaten by the Asian Palm Civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus) and other related civets, then passed through its digestive tract.[1] A civet eats the berries for their fleshy pulp. In its stomach, proteolytic enzymes seep into the beans, making shorter peptides and more free amino acids. Passing through a civet's intestines the beans are then defecated, having kept their shape. After gathering, thorough washing, sun drying, light roasting and brewing, these beans yield an aromatic coffee with much less bitterness, widely noted as the most expensive coffee in the world.

Next, someone will inform us that they saved a bundle by feeding the beans to their dog and "harvesting" the results
