  • Black Ivory Coffee: Canadian’s elephant poop coffee makes a pricey cup of Joe

    The sun rises over a branch of the Mekong River in northern Thailand that serves as bathing waters for local elephants.

    Blake Dinkin, a Toronto entrepreneur, carefully watches a few of the large mammals.

    "Oh, there!" Dinkin says, cringing as he points to the river. An elephant has just taken a dump and an island of feces is now floating downstream. Dinkin stares at it.

    "We can’t save it," he says.

    Once the elephant poop is wet, Dinkin can’t sift through it and recover the hidden nuggets of coffee beans hidden within. He’s already lost several thousand dollars this way.
