Friday Fun: A Special Kind of Caffeinated


It’s Friday, that wonderful day when the business world relaxes a bit. I was quite pleased to look at my calendar this morning and realize that I had no meetings scheduled for today. Not a single one.

As such, today is dedicated to some of the more satisfying things in an entrepreneur’s work life — tying up loose ends, planning for the weekend, and even taking things a bit off topic and enjoying the day.

My friend Ted Atoka sent me this gem, and I think it’s a perfect diversion for a laid-back Friday afternoon. It might come as a surprise to you that I am quite a fan of coffee. Honestly, I’m not terribly picky — as long as it’s hot, black, and hasn’t been baking over a convenience store’s burner for a day and a half, I’m happy.

I will say, though, that some coffee is better than others. I had the good fortune to procure a Cuisinart stainless steel coffee maker with a built-in grinder a few months ago. The best part: I found it in a second-hand store for $10. I can’t even begin to explain how much better freshly ground coffee tastes compared to the pre-ground stuff.

Over the years, I’m sampled hundreds of varieties of coffee, from the dollar-store stuff to the high-end organic beans you’ll only find through specialty retailers. I can’t say, though, that I have any experience with the topic of Ted’s article, which describes a rare, insanely expensive type of coffee only made in a few corners of the world.

So take a break, grab a cup, and learn about one of the most expensive coffees of the world: Black Ivory (colloquially known as Elephant Poop Coffee):
