Full-time travel is filled with the unexpected. Case in point: this video is currently being uploaded on airport wifi AS WE ARE BOARDING THE PLANE! There’s a missing baby carrier in this airport somewhere that helps to complete that story. Another unexpected thing that happened recently was tasting poop coffee. You read that right. Poop. Coffee 😅 Check out the full YouTube video for all the details (link in profile - upload pending). Thanks for being patient with us!

☕️ Vietnamese coffee: Round 1
Cà Phê Chồn Edition
aka Kopi Luwak
aka civet coffee
aka coffee that’s been 💩ed out by cats 🤣
So much hype around this coffee and it honestly seems to be just that: more talk than substance. Don’t get me wrong, it was good. But is it better than a cup of Jamaican Blue Mountain? I think not.
(Also, I gotta be honest—there’s a lot of issues regarding animal cruelty with kopi luwak. I’m ashamed to say I didn’t check with the hotel to see if the coffee they were using was cruelty-free 😭 While it’s highly unlikely I’ll be reaching for another cup, I’ll be sure to check next time!)

I must say I take coffee for granted. First thing in the morning, filled with cream mmm! On a bicycle tour I took in 2008 we stopped off at a Balinese coffee tour in Ubud and got to see the different stages of making Bali kopi (no Nescafe here!). Swipe left to see beans on the tree, chili coffee, raw beans (are white!) and ginger coffee! They also made civet coffee...wait for it ... The civet is a small nocturnal mammal native to Asia and Africa. The Balinese feed coffee beans to the civet who's little body doesn't digest them at all and the beans poop out whole. Yep you guessed it, civet coffee is civet poop coffee!
What am I? Some kind of peasant? Of course I only drink the finest of the weasel poop coffees. “Kopi luwak, or civet coffee, is coffee that includes part-digested coffee cherries eaten and defecated by the Asian palm civet. Fermentation occurs as the cherries pass through a civet's intestines, and after being defecated with other fecal matter, they are collected.” I was fortunate to get this highly coveted coffee because my super hotty wife got me some while she was passing through Vietnam.
Day 1 in Bali started out really beautiful and sunny. First, we went to Pura Batu Bolong and Tanah Lot. Both are Hindu temples on the west coast of Bali. Tanah Lot can be explored on foot at low tide, but we went there first because traffic can be really thick closer to sunset when tide is low. Tanah Lot means land on the sea and is a worship site to the Hindu god of water/the sea. After seeing the temples we went coffee and tea tasting. They discussed the luwak coffee and the many herbs used to flavor their coffee and teas. Yes, 💩 ☕️ 😂 It’s not actually poop... the civets consume the coffee cherries and they are fermented through their digestion. The beans are peeled and cleaned and yes, we did try the coffee. The caffeine level isn’t as high in luwak coffee. It wasn’t bad, but I think I’ll stick to @caffeineandkilos #bali#indonesia#purabatubalong#tanahlot#tabanan#nisaadventures#explore#templesofbali#poopcoffee#luwakcoffee#coffeeteaflight#caffeine
Instead of eating turkey and stuffing today on Thanksgiving I watched the rain fall in the morning, enjoyed some #crossfit @crossfitwanderlust_bali with fresh #coconutwater and then tried some #poopcoffee#kopiluwakcoffee ... do be honest it was actually really good, and civets are adorable 💕 so very thankful that I am able to explore a different culture. The locals here rarely drink Kopi Luwak. They reserve it for special ceremonies.
#fancyfriday for fancy #coffee
So this specific coffee is the most expensive type there is. It’s called #kopiluwak and its expensive because it’s fermented through the digestive system of civet #cats . What I’m trying to tell you is that this is #poopcoffee and a bag of this usually sells around 400 bucks. Photo credits @thisdoclifts
I don't like coffee to begin with. The most expensive coffee in the world made from the pooped beans of the Civet cat was no exception. Fortunately the view couldn't be better. #poopcoffee#kopiluwak#bali
How many coffees per day is SAFE? The answer may surprise you... GETTING your caffeine kick with as many as three cups of coffee a day may be good for your heart while drinking as many as six doesn’t raise the risk of suffering from heart problems, a new research suggested.
A study debunking long-held convictions related to coffee found three daily cups can lower the risk of palpitation by 13 percent and reduce chances of a heart attack or a stroke.
The research from the American College of Cardiology conducted on more than 340,000 people found evidence that both tea and coffee may protect against common heart rhythm diseases as caffeinated drinks are full of healthy antioxidants.
Contrary to common belief, caffeine doesn’t make the heart pump harder or tire out faster.
This is a “public perception”, according to cardiologist Dr Peter Kistler, who led the new study and is director of the Alfred Hospital and Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute.
In fact, his team showed that caffeine protected against both atrial fibrillation (AF) and ventricular arrhythmia (VA), problems affecting respectively one million and two million people every year in the UK.
A single cup of coffee containing 95mg of caffeine acts as a stimulant to the central nervous system and blocks the effects of adenosine, a chemical that can cause AF.
In AF, the heart pumps blood less efficiently around the body because it is contracting and relaxing irregularly or too quickly.
Pooling data from 115,993 people showed a 13 per cent reduction in risk of AF among regular coffee drinkers.
A further ‘meta-analysis’ of 228,465 participants found AF frequency fell by six per cent in those with higher... Click on the link to explore more
KOPI LUWAK. this is myfirst time trying this bougie 🐱💩 ☕️. A lot of hype surrounds this drink and i’m probably gonna get a bunch of crap ( pun intended ) from all these animal activists that support the civet. Hell, I support the civet bc it’s one cute ass looking animal! you gotta at least try some things once! tbh i’m energized but it doesn’t seem to make any real difference in comparison to other high grade coffee. vietnamese coffees and phils are still gonna be my all time faves...at least civet coffee is off my list now ✅ this coffee is the shxt! #poopcoffee#civet#kopiluwak#crap#coffee#rare#yolo#caffeine
Tea and coffee, which one is healthier?
Countless arguments have been waged over the superiority of one beverage over the other. But what does the scientific evidence says.
By David Robson
The wake-up call
For many, the caffeine kick is the primary reason we choose either beverage; it’s the oil to our engines when we’re still feeling a bit creaky in the morning. Based purely on its composition, coffee should win hands down: a cup of tea has about half the dose (40 milligrams) of the stimulant caffeine that you would find in a standard cup of brewed filter coffee (80 to 115 milligrams). Yet this doesn’t necessarily reflect the jolt of the wake-up call.
Dosing subjects with either tea or coffee, one (admittedly small) study found that both beverages left subjects feeling similarly alert later in the morning. Although that study was based on self-reported feelings of alertness, clear differences have failed to emerge in more objective measures of concentration, either – such as reaction times. Indeed, when you dose up on tea made to the equivalent strength as coffee, it actually proves to be more effective at sharpening the mind.
The scientists conclude that the caffeine dose is not the whole story: perhaps our expectations also determine how alert we feel, or it could be that it’s the overall experience of the tastes, and smells, of our favourite drink that awakens our senses.
Verdict: Against logic, tea seems to provide just as powerful a wake-up call as coffee. It’s a draw.

Health benefits of civet coffee
Civet coffee or cat poop coffee is the most expensive coffee in the world.
It's hard to believe that an animal eats coffee beans, then excrete it, and people collect those beans to make the world’s most expensive coffee.
