Photo detail

In this photo taken Dec. 3, 2012, Blake Dinkin, founder of Black Ivory Coffee, holds a basket of coffee beans to mix with other fruits before feeding to elephants at an elephant camp in Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand. Dinkin, 37, 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.
