Sometimes its best to not know and just enjoy. Friends of mine did a lot of traveling until the husband passed away. One trip was to China and some other countries. A group of us were together and someone asked the wife what they ate. She said she ate because she was hungry and didn't ask, didn't want to know. Me, I'm too picky even with 'American' food to be that adventurous.
Not saying coffee from animal dung doesn't sound gross, yet everything in life is recycled one way or another. I'm just grateful to not be one of the wives going thru the dung to find the coffee beans, now that's yucky!
While I enjoy an occasional Starbucks, Kava's been my coffee choice for a while now. It's 50% acid neutralized via potassium hydroxide, definitely more affordable than dung!
