The Funnel Mill is a rare coffee and tea shop on Broadway in Santa Monica. How rare? This is the only place you can find the Kopi Luwak bean. Or as it’s more boastfully referred to as, a fucking $90 cup of coffee.
On the right is a normal coffee bean. The rich oaky aroma makes you smile like a Maxwell house commercial. On the left is a bean that went through the digestive tract of a cat like creature, then defecated on the jungle carpet. Collected by villages and sold for $1,000 and ounce.
You can’t just roll into Funnel Mill and be like, gimme the $90 cup. Kopi Luwak is by appointment only. The preparation is also another hour long process. Also, if JC doesn’t like you, he won’t serve you.
I had to bring the only person
that can afford sophisticated enough to enjoy a $90 coffee. The owner of Notorious Los Angeles, Neale Ferguson. Oh you know Neale even if you think you don’t, he does a lot commercials and visually made you fall in love with a hopeless place. Chrome Hearts called…
You drink one hot. One cup at 150. Then one at room temperature. Then you clean your entire house.
