Bird Spit Coffee - 8 March 2015 
Bird’s nests are a sure sign of spring, but they are also one of the world’s most expensive foods, selling for up to $2,500 a kg.

Prized in China for their alleged health benefits for hundreds of years, nests made from swiftlets' saliva are mixed into soups, coffee, cereals and skin care products as producers aim to broaden the delicacy’s appeal - and their profit margins.
