Also known as Indonesia Palm Civet Coffee, Animal Coffee, or Cat Coffee.
Kopi Luwak coffee comes from the Indonesian island of Sumatra, an area well known for its excellent coffee. Also native to this area is a small civit-like animal called Paradoxurus, the locals call them luwaks. These little mammals live in the trees and one of their favorite foods is the red ripe coffee cherry. These animals eat the cherries, bean and all. While the bean is in the little guy's stomach, it undergoes chemical treatments and fermentations. The bean finishes its journey through their digestive system, and exits. The still-intact beans are collected from the forest floor, cleaned, then roasted and ground just like any other coffee.
The result is this Kopi Luwak coffee that is said to be like no other. It has a rich, heavy flavor with hints of caramel & chocolate. Other terms used to describe it are earthy, musty, and exotic. The Kopi Luwak body is almost syrupy and it is very smooth. More about the secret behind Kopi Luwaks Superior Taste, please click here.
One must wonder about the circumstances that brought about the first cup of Kopi Luwak coffee. Who would think to (or even want to) collect and roast beans out of animal feces? Perhaps a native figured it was easier to collect the coffee beans from the ground this way, rather than having to work harder and pick them from the trees? We'll likely never know. But because of the strange method of collecting, there isn't much Kopi Luwak produced in the world. The average total annual production of Kopi Luwak coffee is only around 500 pounds of beans.
Because of the rarity of this kopi Luwak coffee, the price is quite outrageous. If you can find a vendor, the current cost for a pound of Kopi Luwak is around $300 or more. Some more adventurous coffee houses are selling it by the cup, but you won't likely find it at your local coffee shop just yet. The coffee isn't so spectacular that it's truly worth that amount of money. You are paying for the experience of enjoying such an unusual and rare delicacy.
To order please visit our online store: www.LuwakCoffee.com. We are not associated with any Ebay sellers or any foreign internet companies that operate out of Indonesia & HongKong. We have discovered that some people from Indonesia & Hong Kong have been distributing simulated Kopi Luwak from Semarang. It is not the original Kopi Luwak product. This Semarang products are using the kopi luwak flavor only, and not the real stuff that you are looking for. That's why they are selling on Ebay with no refund policy. Authentic Kopi Luwak only comes from the Indonesian Island of Sumatra. These luwaks are the Sumatran native animals. Do not believe in any certificate issued by any Indonesian institutions, because they are a very corrupt organization. Everybody can claim that they have their own coffee plantation on the Internet; but, not everyone will misrepresent the truth. You have to understand that there are not any legal organizations, under the goverment of Indonesia, that allow a company to register a name with "Inc". When any organization that operates on Indonesian soil claims their company name in the form of "Inc", then you need to question their credibility. Gather as much information about the Indonesian organizational structure, and find out about their business culture. In order to legally own a coffee plantation in Indonesia, that organization needs to be properly registered first (especially when we are talking about owning several coffee plantations on 3 different islands that are far apart from each other).
