Nowadays, people gradually begin to drink coffee with the popularity of coffee, there are all kinds of strange "shit coffee" in modern society.

In recent years, after Indonesia's Kopi Luwak has become popular around the world, the "bird shit coffee" launched by Brazil in South America has also come to the fore quietly.

It is understood that this kind of coffee bean is a kind of South American ornid animal "meat hanging Phoenix crown pheasant". They like to eat coffee fruit very much and are processed with the coffee beans excreted in their feces after eating the coffee fruit. But it is conceivable that it is difficult to find their droppings and so coincidentally undigested coffee fruit, so the yield will not be particularly high. Compared with ordinary coffee, "bird shit coffee" is more mellow and full-bodied, with sweet nuts and other flavors.

The bird, which usually lives in the Brazilian rainforest, is good at identifying mature, high-quality coffee beans, thus adding a unique flavor to local coffee bean production. The coffee, also known as the "best coffee in Brazil", sells for up to 1118 Brazilian reais (about 1650 yuan) per kilogram in Brazil, and may be more expensive when exported overseas.

In response, some netizens said on the social platform, "I feel like I won't try it when I hear the name."I don't care how expensive it is, give it to me for nothing, don't drink it." indeed, this kind of high and hard-to-swallow coffee will be difficult for everyone to accept.

Some media contacted the head of a coffee farm in Brazil to explain why the price of this "bird shit coffee" is so high, because this kind of coffee beans rely more on wild birds than artificial breeding. there is no way to make "bird shit coffee" at a low cost, so its price is naturally expensive.

And, in addition, there is its scarcity and uncertainty, if there are environmental problems, there will not be the emergence of this product.

In Brazil, many tourists come to buy beans and try their luck to see if they can witness the "fleshy Phoenix-crowned pheasant" eating coffee beans because of rumors that it will specially select the best quality coffee beans to eat. In addition to bird shit coffee, there are Kopi Luwak, macaque coffee, raccoon shit coffee, Vietnamese squirrel coffee. Waiting for different strange coffee beans.

When it comes to Kopi Luwak, it can be said to resound in the coffee world at that time. The first wild civets looked for coffee fruits in the jungle on their own and then excreted coffee beans with their feces, but later, some profit-seeking merchants were not satisfied with the sporadic production in the jungle. They began to be brutally locked up in narrow cages and only given coffee fruits to eat, feeding coffee fruits in large quantities to get more coffee beans, forcing them to pull and eat. This is undoubtedly a disaster for the already timid and freedom-loving civet. Finally, many animal lovers learned that they began to boycott Kopi Luwak, so they seldom heard of it.

As the "bird shit coffee" is rare and expensive, it sells for about 1600 yuan per kilogram, making it one of the most expensive coffee in the world. Generally speaking, "bird shit coffee" is undoubtedly a new attempt, whether it is "Kopi Luwak", I believe it is only a short period of heat, at present, this kind of curiosity coffee is not acceptable to the public.

Moreover, whether the coffee smells good or not is obviously the aroma of money.
