The story behind Kopi Luwak;
In the forests of Sumatra lives the Luwak knows as the palm civet cat.
The cherries are eaten by the Asian palm civet, a small member of the Viverridae family, and are then digested, fermented and excreted.
This process creates shorter peptides in the beans and frees amino acids, improving the flavour profile of the bean.
However there is another reason why this process is loved by so many: the palm civet selects only the finest cherries to eat, meaning the only the best beans are collected by the farmers.
The undigested coffee seeds are then collected by the natives before being cleaned and prepared for shipment. This is an extremely rare coffee having an intense, but delicate flavour with heavy aftertaste, this is due to the partial fermentation during its course through the civet cat.
Only about 500kg are collected each year.
We are assured by our suppliers, with certification, that this coffee has been obtained from free range (wild) civet cats.
