The Bliss Series – Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone
Bliss Sanctuary for women creates a wonderful comfort zone for guests and also offers opportunities to step outside that comfort zone too.
I opted to head into the hills of Ubud for an Eco Bike Tour that included a visit to a place where the Balinese make coffee out of wild cat poo.
Expensive, time consuming to make and, sadly for the civet, means being kept in a cage.
(Our species sure loves keeping living things in cages.
For humans, it’s called jail. It’s a punishment.
Why don’t we see it as a punishment in a jail when we do it to animals?)
The civet is a nocturnal creature – here’s the one I met during daylight. He’s sleeping.
And here’s what they look like when they’re up and about scoffing coffee berries.
Humans collect the poo-laced coffee / coffee laced poo and turn it into a hot bev for humans.
Avoid the sludge at the bottom (of the cup, not the civet).
