Oh, do we have your attention? Do you enjoy an expensive single-origin brew? Or was it the cat poo that caused you to pause for a moment?
Whatever the reason, we’re just thrilled we had a reason to put all of those words together in one sentence, and that we get to share this clip with you.
On his GQ web show “Most Expensivest Sh**," the Southern rapper 2 Chainz (AKA Titi Boi, AKA Tauheed Epps) travels around the world trying out, well, the most expensivest sh** he can find, like Billion Dollar Popcorn. Here’s how GQ describes the concept: “When you enjoy the finer things like rapper 2 Chainz, the more cash you have, the better. Watch as 2 Chainz sets out to find the most outrageous luxury goods on the planet and see if they're worth it or not.”
In a recent episode Mr. Chainz visited with Jeremy Kuempel, the founder of Blossom Coffee, where he samples a cup of Kopi Luwak.
For the uninitiated, Kopi Luwak is made by a very distinct process whereby an Asian palm civet (also called a toddy cat) eats coffee cherries, digests them, and passes them. The expelled coffee cherries are dug out (yea, you’re thinking right), then roasted and used to produce one rather expensive cup of coffee. (Because digging through Indonesian wildcat excrement for cherries doesn’t come cheap).
As 2 Chainz puts it “This coffee is collected from poop. Poop coffee.”
If the Kopi Luwak wasn’t fancy enough for you (it retails for up to $600 a pound), the cup is also prepared in a Blossom brewer, which retails for around $6,000 dollars. Oh and we almost forgot, the beans are ground in a $3,000 Mahlkonig EK43 grinder. 2 Chainz doesn't mess around.
So after all that buildup, does the coffee live up to the hype? Could 2 Chainz taste any difference?
Oh well. Check out the video below and hear what else 2 Chainz has to say about the brew:
