Blake Dinkin, a pioneer of this production process, utilized those animals which are provided by a foundation that saves elephants to be exploited by humankind. This digestion process gives coffee its aroma making it the most exquisite coffee taste.
The coffee beans that these giant animals are taken from northern Thailand and blend with a fruit puree. And they are consumed by these special animals in its natural way. Blake Dinkin doesn’t want to violate animals’ rights. He doesn’t urge them to eat coffee beans.
