Intense, rich and extremely thick coffee with aroma filled with chocolate and nuts. The taste reminds of caramel and leaves a long-lasting sweet aftertaste.
Kopi Luwak is a luxurious delicacy in the world of coffee. Extraordinarily limited supply of Indonesian coffee is processed in a special way – in the gastrointestinal tract of the Asian palm civet (“luwak”). Squirrel-like animals feed on coffee berries and then remove the rest of the bean through the digestive tract. This way coffee beans change their structure and give the coffee its special aroma and flavour.
The particular taste of Kopi Luwak results from the process itself. The enzymes in the stomach of palm civet affect the coffee beans and break down the protein. Before the beans are removed, they still remain in the stomach where they begin to sprout. In fact, the process is the same as for malt production. As a result, the coffee loses all its bitterness and develops an exclusive taste.
STORY: When you hear about Kopi Luwak for the first time, the question always arises – who discovered this coffee? During the colonization Dutch harvested everything from the plantations and local farmers lost the opportunity to taste and sell coffee themselves. However, they soon noticed that coffee beans could be found in the stools of local palm musangs. Locals collected the beans, washed, dried and roasted them for their own use. To their amazement, the taste of coffee was even more amazing than usual – this is how this exotic coffee was discovered. At the end of the 20th century, Kopi Luwak spread across the Western world, creating a real sensation.
