No to Civet Coffee

Kopi Luwak or Civet Coffee is yet another Asian fad that is detrimental to conservation. Wild civets are captured, subjected to inhuman treatment and force-feeding, only to increase yields. Among the acts that go unnoticed, are killing and stuffing civets for the sake of advertisement, as is a common practice in food markets in Vietnam that sell Kopi Luwak.

(A stuffed palm civet used to advertise a brand of Civet Coffee, labelled as 'Weasel Coffee'. Benh Thanh Street Food Market, Saigon). Indonesia and Vietnam are Kopi Luwak hubs.

The comic appears in my column with Mid-Day today
