In this photo taken Dec. 3, 2012, the $1,100 per kilogram ($500 per pound) Black Ivory coffee is poured into a cup at a hotel restaurant in Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand. A Canadian entrepreneur with a background in civet coffee has teamed up with a herd of 20 elephants, gourmet roasters and one of the country's top hotels to produce the Black Ivory, a new blend from the hills of northern Thailand and the excrement of elephants which ranks among the world's most expensive cups of coffee.
