Divine Madman coffee began as the retirement project of owner RobinSherman. Robin takes a considerable amount of care in her product, roasting apound of coffee at a time and ensuring that all the beans are organic and fair-trade. Divine Madman offers coffee from each of the four coffee regions: Brazil, Asia, Africa, and Central/South America. If you still need some specialization Divine Madman will custom roast beans to your specification. For the brave or experimental, Divine Madman offer Kopi Luwak. What is Kopi Luwak you ask? Well, the coffee berry is a sweet treat for the Palm Civit (a cat-sized mammal) which makes up a large part of their diets. Although the outer part of the coffee cherry is digested, the harder, inner bean is not. These beans are gathered "later" and sold as some of the most expensive coffee. DivineMadman only sample Kopi Luwak at the Hillcrest Farmers Market and it is available to you at the discounted price of $300/lb.
