I don’t know about you, but Jacobs is my morning hero and I can’t betray him after he served me well so many years.
I don’t even want to try the most expensive coffee in the world. Why?
Because the most expensive coffee in the world is shit. Weasel shit. 😐

How the most expensive coffee in the world is made:
A video would have been perfect, but I don’t think my advertisers would be very thrilled so I will just describe the process for you.
In Indonesia, there is this animal called Common palm civet (Kopi luwak is the local name). The civet eats the raw red coffee beans and then digests the soft outer part of the coffee cherry, while leaving the inner beans intact. Then it excretes them. Locals pick them up and sell it for a nice profit. Here’s a pic (not recommended if you drank this)

San Francisco is a city of culture, lively neighborhoods, shopping malls, and beautiful year round weather. There is an estimated population of nearly 1 million people, making San Francisco the 12th most populated city in the country. The San Francisco Bay area actually has over 7 million residents. That’s more than the state of New Mexico has in the entire state! This city is more than people though, because there are tons of delicious eateries – one being Ike’s Place, a creative sandwich shop.

Ike’s Place was opened in 2007, so it is still a fairly new establishment. The owner wanted to create a fabulous sandwich shop made with fine ingredients and a friendly atmosphere. The shop opened on Halloween that year, and has been packed every day since opening. Word of mouth quickly spread, and the shop now has several awards and well over 1,000 reviews on the online review center, YELP!


Cheap Hotels Chicago

Chicago is an amazing urban landscape, with a stunning skyline including dazzling skyscrapers and magnificent gothic inspired buildings (including the Tribune Tower on Michigan Avenue) and some of the most famous architects have worked here including Louis Sullivan, Mies van der Rohe and Frank Lloyd Wright. It is not surprising when you look around this stunning city that the first steel-framed skyscraper in the world, the Reliance Building (now the wonderful Hotel Burham) was built here.

Typical of cities situated in humid continental climate areas (mid latitude zones with conflicting polar and tropical air masses) Chicago has extremely cold, snowy winters and lovely warm sunny summers, with plenty of rain and thunderstorms throughout the year. Chicago is often called ‘the windy city’ but this isn’t because of the weather, but instead because of the pompous, longwinded bragging by Chicago city officials, which goaded Charles Dana, (editor of the New York Sun) to famously gave it the ‘windy city’ nickname in 1893.
