Kopi luwak, on of the best coffee with unique flavor

October 2nd, 2023

Kopi luwak is considered as the premium coffee, given its unique flavor is obtained from a process in which coffee beans are eaten by palm civets, fermented and passed through the cat-like animal’s intestines. Then these beans are collected and processed to become one of the world’s top quality coffee. Let’s check it out for more details about kopi luwak in the following article.

General information

In Indonesian language, “kopi” means coffee, while “luwak” means civet. The animal would use its sensitive sense of smell to pick and eat the best ripened cherries, which could be a mix of arabica and robusta varieties. The cherries are partially digested, and the fermented beans are excreted. Thanks to the civet’s enzymes, the roasted coffee beans become harder, crispier and have more flavors than the other coffee types.

The name Kopi is the calling voice for “coffee” of The Dutch farmers in Java island of Indonesia. These farmers accidently found out the coffee beans in Luwak’s poop (Kuwak is the name of one civet) still unchanged, then dried them and processed them to become a good drink. Therefore, the Dutch call civet poop coffee with another name Kopi Luwak.

Types of kopi luwak

Wild kopi luwak

This is an extremely rare type, which is processed from poops of wild civets. They can freely choose their most favorite coffee cherries, therefore, the flavor of the kopi luwak is distinctive and especially delicious. The price of this wild coffee is among the world’s most expensive coffee.
