Black Ivory Coffee follow up


Last year I wrote a post about Black Ivory Coffee…the most expensive coffee in the world , even more expensive that Kopi Luwak. Like Kopi Luwak though it is processed via an animal and their intestinal tract and sifted out of their dung.

This morning I received an email from the founder:


Thanks for your coverage on Black Ivory Coffee a few months back. Your readers may be interested to learn that it is available to the public
until August 16. 

There was this video as well:

Black Ivory Coffee is naturally refined by rescued Thai elephants. It is the world’s rarest (300 kg available for 2013) and most uniquely processed coffee. According to media reports it is also the most expensive. It has taken the founder, Blake Dinkin, 10 years and his life savings to develop this product.

Black Ivory Coffee starts with the highest quality 100% Thai Arabica beans which are then ingested and naturally refined by rescued Thai elephants.  This process removes the bitterness from coffee and infuses the fruit of the cherry into the bean. The result is a cup of coffee that is floral, chocolate in aroma with a flavour that can be described as a mix of chocolate, ripe red cherries and a hint of grass with no bitterness or burnt taste.

I’d love to try this…perhaps they will send me some for posting about their project.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
