A Canadian entrepreneur with a background in civit coffee has teamed up with a herd of 26 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.
