Kopi Luwak

Just prepared a cup of wild kopi luwak from the Mandailing Coffee Estate in North-West Sumatra.

The coffee cherries are first eaten by the Asian palm civet (Indonesian name: luwak). Then they digest them and egest them in their feces. The droppings are then collected by Sumatran coffee farmers.

The Luwak processing reduces acidity and adds smoothness to the body of the coffee.

I do not think that it is considered haram or halal. I remember that Indonesian ulamas have repeatedl tried to ban the coffee ....


A fried of mine who had recently traveled to Indonesia brought me some ground kopi luwak. I prepared it with my Bodum coffee maker, 2 spoons per cup, water temperature a few degrees below boiling point. I drank it without adding sugar or milk to get the full taste of the coffee.

Drinking the coffee was a pleasant experience. It was a little bit softer and smoother than the filter coffee that I would usually drink.

However, I would not have identified it as kopi luwak, to me it tasted just like a good cup of coffee.

Hill of beans (ok seeds)


A friend who grows some coffee (photo of some of his farm) has invited me to get involved hand picking the cherries and sorting one of the upcoming weekends.

I'm quite excited at the prospect of making my own.

I have to come up with a cool name for my own custom coffee. "UnFairtrade" is too obvious so considering "Swede Anderson" from Dead men don't wear Plaid.



Edit: Just in case you wonder what he is doing with the eggs, check this out: https://ineedcoffee.com/the-smoothest-cup-youll-ever-drink-swedish-egg-coffee/ (Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish coffee whatever.. its great)

Ichy, this is sort of a "you're kidding, right?" sort of post.

I admit I stopped watching the video when he talked about using a laser to stimulate his brain, and he demonstrated by shining the laser at different parts of his skull to get the light into the areas of his brain underneath. I don't think the light penetrated, actually.

I do understand the coffee at 11:00 PM though. It has saved my procrastinating ass many times.

Bob.

you should watch the rest of the video because it does get more interesting, especially the "IO" part where he talks about minimizing recall to near instantaneous

Well, I may.

Still not sure about light going through a skull, is all.

How I made my mind my bitch? no..

@Itchymoku As a kid maybe from 11 I was very interested in this stuff. We used to get Everyday Electronics and Practical Electronics magazines every month and the "Russian sleep machine", various white noise, TEMS, you name it. Some had measurable effects, some did not. I was both professor Honeydew and Beaker.

I just saw this new study yesterday:
Stimulating the brain with mild electric current can improve vision

What I do now for my trading is fairly simple. I work pretty much 14-17 hours a day, 5 days a week for the past two years and I'm maintaining my sanity if not improving.

Along with nutrition & keytones as he said (nothing fancy though its hard to get decent butter in Colombia), I just make sure I get enough oxygen sleeping. I don't snore (perhaps lightly) but I use "Breathright" strips anyway fairly often.
When I do I awake far more refreshed & using my recording Pulse-Oxymeter the difference is a clear rise of average O2 and also minimal peaks and troughs. I stay in a state of shallow breathing (interesting article) and muscle soreness etc. is minimal.

taking a break from the usual Starbucks...


..and giving this a try..so far so good. After we work through our first 2 lbs (about 2 weeks), we'll give the Mexican bean a try.
