I've done the reroast thing; the beans come out very oily and very shiny.  Anyone up for doing the grind green and taste test with unprocessed Kopi Luwak?

Haha! That made me laugh!

A coworker of mine, knowing my enthusiasm for coffee (and, more importantly, knowing that I keep a grinder and French Press at work), shared some (roasted) Kopi Luwak with me.

The smell never quite went away on my equipment, after a month and a pretty thorough cleaning...

I hate to say it's "YUCK," it's definitely "different." :P

Maybe he just didn't pay enough for FRESH beans, ha!

-Roast green coffee to approximately 325 F and purposefully bake it for about 5 minutes. Drop, cool, grind coarse. Brew with malted barley mash, make alt coffee beer. (Still working on this one. Gotta get my beer-brewing-brother to actually commit this year!)

-Brew up some coffee.  Cool it in the fridge.  Put it in a sealed container in the freezer, but DO NOT FREEZE IT, just get it to 34F.  Attach to CO2 at 50PSI and carbonate it.  Enjoy.

This looks seriously interesting.  I know they have those soda pop makers at Macy's now.  With a little sugar or splenda that could be a very interesting drink.  I

interesting approach.  Beers made with coffee typically have the coffee added after the mash, not during.  I'd probably be up for tasting one if it were done this way, but I wouldn't expect it to be very drinkable, given the coffee would be WAAAAY over-extracted.
