What is Kopi Luwak Coffee?
Kopi Luwak Coffee has a very unusual origin, unlike any other coffee beans. The Luwak denizen (a member of the cat family, also known as the Asian Palm Civet) of the coffee plantations of Java, Sumatra, and Sulawesi eats only the ripest coffee cherries. Unable to digest the coffee beans, the Luwak graciously deposits them on the jungle floor, where the locals eagerly collect them. The stomach acids and enzymatic action involved in this unique fermentation process produce the beans for the world’s rarest coffee beverage.
“The secret of this delicious blend," enthuses the Indonesia Tourism Promotion Board, "lies in the bean selection, which is performed by a luwak, a species of civet cat endemic to Java. The luwak will eat only the choicest, most perfectly matured beans, which it then excretes, partially digested, a few hours later. Plantation workers then retrieve the beans from the ground, ready for immediate roasting." The coffee has also become known to some people as civet coffee or weasel coffee and others call it cat poop coffee.
Kopi Luwak Coffee began showing up in North America during the 1990s at the gourmet coffee craze height. It has been sold in the U.S. for up to $600 per pound and can fetch as much as $50 for a single brewed cup in fine restaurants worldwide. Because of the rarity of this coffee, the price is quite high. You are paying for the experience of enjoying such an unusual and rare delicacy as well as a spectacular cup of coffee.
You may have seen Kopi Luwak Coffee in the 2007 movie, The Bucket List, where it is actor Jack Nicholson's beverage of choice and he carries a supply with him wherever he goes. This has become known as the Bucket List Coffee. The Oprah Winfrey Show featured this coffee as well. And of course, there are many documentaries shown on television- It is known as the most expensive coffee in the world and is well worth it.
Free Range Kopi Luwak Coffee and Not Caged
Our Kopi Luwak Coffee beans are wild gathered and from civets that are not caged, also known as Free Range Kopi Luwak. We work closely with the Indonesian Exporters who bring Kopi Luwak to the U.S. and support organizational efforts and people against civet abuse in the harvesting of coffee, which is unacceptable.
Wild civets make a higher quality coffee since they decide which coffee cherries to eat, which are the ripest, so it is in our best interest to support Kopi Luwak coffee from civets that are not caged. This is one reason why our coffee is priced higher than others.
We do not only focus our efforts on keeping the Civits in the wild, but we also go beyond the Fair Trade & Rainforest Alliance efforts by paying a premium price.
The Most Expensive Coffee - Kopi Luwak Coffee
Touted as the rarest and most expensive coffee on earth, this coffee lives up to its reputation. Rich, strong-flavored, and amazingly full-bodied, this is the perfect cup of coffee to savor. It is an exquisite combination of other coffees' various features and an excellent combination of chocolate and syrupy taste. The unique fermentation and origin of the beans make Kopi Luwak Coffee truly exceptional and one-of-a-kind.
The Origin and Processing of Kopi Luwak Coffee Beans
This sensational delicacy originates from the islands of Sulawesi, Sumatra, and Java in Indonesia. The unique method of production gives some hint to its rarity and specialty. Asian palm civet is a type of cat-sized mammal native to South-East Asia. Physically, this animal has raccoon-like markings on its face and it possesses a long, stocky body. Regarded as pests by locals, palm civets are well-known tree climbers. They consume the ripest, reddest coffee cherries and this has long been one of their favorite foods. During ingestion, the beans were uniquely fermented by the enzymes present in the stomach of the civet. As the beans remain one or one and a half-day in the civet's digestive tract, they start to germinate. This leads to a significant reduction in the bitterness of the bean. The germination process is referred to as malt. Thus it can be said that the civet probably produces malt coffee. As a result of the digestion, a distinctly exotic flavor was added to the beans.
Though excretions are normally passed off as nothing but waste, the excretions from palm civets are converted into the prized Kopi Luwak Coffee as we know of today. The bean-like excretions are normally covered by cherries’ mucilage and gathered by the locals for sale. The best beans are the premium green beans. They are individually separated, washed, and dried. Before roasting, the beans are stored in a dark, dry location. Minimal supplies are produced each year, enhancing its status as the rarest and most expensive coffee available today.
Kopi Luwak Coffee Price - Price per Cup of Kopi Luwak Coffee for Sale Affordable Compared to Ordinary Coffee Shop Prices
The price is high for a coffee cup, but let's try to put it into perspective on what you may be paying for a coffee at your local Starbucks or another coffee shop. The actual cost per cup for a Kopi Luwak coffee is only $8.33. Compare that to a specialty espresso or latte drink that will cost $4 per cup or a frappuccino costing $5. So in perspective, a cup of Kopi Luwak Coffee price is not that much per cup than what you would normally drink at your local coffee shop!
If you want to know the math behind this calculation, it is as follows. A cup of coffee is approximately two tablespoons of coffee. Two tablespoons convert to .3333333 ounces. A bag of our Kopi Luwak for sale is 1 pound or 16 ounces, so you get 48 cups in a bag. If you divide $399.99 by 48 cups, you get $8.33 cost per cup. According to the Specialty Coffee Association, a single pound of coffee is enough to make 48 ounces of coffee.
Additionally, compare this to Kopi Luwak Coffee that I found on the menu at a South Beach swanky restaurant. Their price was $50 for a single cup of Kopi Luwak, which is incredibly high. Now compare that back to $7.29 and it's not such an expensive cup of coffee.
The Exotic Flavor of Kopi Luwak Coffee
Besides the quality of beans, roasting is the single, most important factor in determining the coffee's aroma, color, and taste. Our beans are roasted to perfection, giving them the most suitable taste, color and aroma for your consuming pleasure. Only our senior roast master with over 40 years of experience is allowed to process Kopi Luwak. Described as strong-flavored, rich, and amazingly full-bodied, this coffee is further distinguished from the rest with a hint of chocolate and syrupy taste. Long after the coffee is gone, you will still be able to savor the clean, lingering aftertaste. It is complex in flavor and is a perfect combination of all the pleasurable flavors available in all other coffees- earthy, musty, aromatic, syrupy sweet and heavy-bodied. It is also low in acidity and possesses an exotic flavor profile like no other, often unable to be described even by coffee connoisseurs.
The Common Misspelling Mistake: “Copi Luwak Coffee” vs. “Kopi Luwak”
Very often, many misspell the word Kopi and used “Copi” instead. In fact, “Kopi” is the Indonesian word for coffee. As Luwak Coffee originates from Indonesia, it is more popularly known as Kopi Luwak. The name stayed on and, today, the coffee is internationally known as Kopi Luwak Coffee. Therefore, “Copi Luwak” should be spelled as “Kopi Luwak” to indicate the real name of this famed coffee. Some other misspellings include Kopi Luak, Cope Luac, Kobe Lulac Coffee, Kobe Lulac Coffee, Capiluac Coffee and some folks refer to it as Civet Coffee.
