Elephant poo coffee created in Thailand

Picking coffee beans from elephant poo sounds like a trial from I'm A Celebrity - but it's not!

A new, unusual type of coffee made from elephant poo has been developed by Canadian Blake Dinkin.

Elephants in Thailand are fed coffee beans which are picked out of their poo when it pops out the other end.
Mr Dinkin claims the beans make an earthy and smooth coffee because elephants break down a protein which makes the drink taste bitter.

But it's not cheap - a serving of the Black Ivory Coffee costs around £31 - and it's only on sale overseas in places like Thailand so far.
