For some reason could not re your mail... so will post here instead
Hi Brandon, funny you should mention the civet (or musang/luwak as we call it here). I had one run out in front of me yesterday when I was biking up behind our roastery in Bogor.
I had a story I posted 5 years ago > http://www.merdekacoffee.com/newsdetail.php?id=08 that you might find useful. Prof Marcone is an interesting figure. We also had Steve-O and Johnny Knoxville vists and try the coffee while filming a live Civet in our roastery. Steve-O was bordering on insane. We do not sell the coffee, but have access to it.
For green we only work with smallholdrs, so we do not have huge volumes left after our own roasting commitments. However if there is anything you are interested in let me know. I have shipped green to the US before and (despite what I hear), its not difficult to do.
Thanks for the note, I too am in KC, give me a call at your leisure 913-940-9652.
I'm in town until next Wednesday, cupping coffee and pulling shots in my lab everyday.
You are always welcome at the table.
