What is Coffee Luwak, why is it so special and how is it made?

The Asian Palm civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus) is responsible for the effects of this unique coffee.
Related to the cat but belonging to the viverridae family, the same as the mongoose, it has a weasel-like face, cat-like body
and long tail with fur which may be either gray or brown with various darker markings.

The Asian Palm civet of Indonesia is a musky grey-toned colour with darker stripes.

Beneath the tail of both sexes is a gland from which a fatty secretion is emitted to mark its
territory. This substance is collected to be used as a perfume fixative, main supplies coming
from the Indian civet (v. zibetha).

The omnivorous, tree-climbing civet cat prowls the coffee plantations at night picking and
consuming the finest and best ripe coffee cherries. These pass through the civet and are
collected in the droppings. Beans emerge without their fleshy coating, but entire and appear
undigested. They are extracted by washing and carefully cleansed before being processed.

It had long been considered as a legend that the civet (Luwak) consumed the best coffee beans which then passed through
their gut undigested, even entire with their cherry-like coating, the beans being washed and processed in the normal fashion
to make this highly selected top grade coffee. Some thought that the actual situation was that the best beans were selected
according to the type civets would eat, and these processed without having actually been eaten by the civet cats.

Liberica is a vanishing species of coffee that is only now being brought back from the brink of extinction. Its almond-shaped beans have an exceptional aroma, almost floral and fruity, while its flavor is full and slightly earthy. Kopi Luwak Liberica is a great way to enjoy Liberica because the Luwak process brings out even more of the rich, full body of the Liberica.

When you drink this coffee, not only are you experiencing what is truly the world's rarest coffee (the rarest bean, made using the rarest process), but you are also helping to preserve a heritage coffee species that even now fights for its continued existence, as well as the indigenous Luwak civet who dines on its juicy cherries and the local farmers who have cultivated the coffee and protected the civets for generations.

As shown, the coffee comes in a glass jar with a scroll telling the story of the coffee and the company that produced it, all wrapped in our beautiful gold lamé gift bag. Great gift for a coffee gourmet - even fits in a stocking!

Indonesian Kopi Luwak

Indonesian Kopi Luwak - 50g

Extremely rare and coveted, Kopi Luwak coffee is produced by civets, a relative of the mongoose, who have a taste for the sweet, red coffee cherries that contain the beans. The beans pass through the civet whole after fermenting in the stomach and that's what gives the coffee its unique taste and aroma. Collected from the jungle floor, then thoroughly washed and dried - this is the coffee that everyone's been talking about.

With earthy Sumatra-like tones, the Kopi Luwak has a heavy, caramel body and low acidity, but also a nuance in the taste that is hard to put ones finger on. Perhaps that is unsurprising given the unorthodox method of processing...
