Unroasted - Kopi Luwak (Coffee Credit Selection)

Kopi-Luak-1

Sold out. More stock expected soon

Kopi Luwak is one of the most unique and prized coffee varieties in the world.

The very exotic Kopi Luwak coffee bean comes from Indonesia and is derived from coffee eaten by the Asian Palm Civet (Luwak is the Indonesian name for this small mammal). The bean finishes its journey through the digestive system of the civet and once 'delivered', the still-intact beans are collected from the forest floor and then thoroughly cleaned and processed like any other coffee.

The Luwak eats coffee cherries grown on trees and, after its digestive system breaks down the skin and pulp, the Luwak excretes what is known as the parchment. The coffee beans are removed carefully from the parchment one by one and then left to dry in the sun.

The resulting coffee is said to be like no other. It proffers a strong, rich flavor with hints of caramel and chocolate. The body is almost syrupy and very smooth. Adding milk or sugar to this coffee is unnecessary as it competes with the beans natural sweetness, distinct flavors andaromas.
