An assistant of farmer Jose Durand carries a coati at the 'Expo Cafe Peru' coffee fair in Lima 
An assistant of farmer Jose Durand carries a coati at the 'Expo Cafe Peru' coffee fair in Lima, October 19, 2012. Durand is now making one of the most expensive coffees in the world by picking arabica beans out of the dung of a long-nosed jungle critter called the coati, a tropical cousin of the racoon. His company, Chanchamayo Highland Coffee, is the second Peruvian venture to copy a rare technique from Indonesia that harnesses a mammal's digestive tract to strip bitter-tasting proteins from coffee beans. After the creatures eat ripe coffee cherries, the growers wash, roast and export the beans that emerge partially fermented but whole in the animals' scat. Picture taken October 19, 2012.
