This coffee was discovered by a Dutch Governor in the 17th century who, on a regional tour, detected a very rich coffee aroma coming from a local hut. This wild Kopi Luwak Civet coffee is produced in the Banda Aceh region of northern Sumatra, where at 1300 metres altitude, the civet droppings are collected by the local people. In colonial times, all coffee produced in Sumatra was exported to Holland and the indigenous Sumatran people were left with no coffee for their own consumption, but discovered that coffee from the droppings of the Musang (Civets) was of superior quality, as the governor subsequently learnt and it became a treasured delicacy. Bold with no bitterness and a smoothly long aftertaste, this is a great example of Kopi Luwak coffee. Filter coffee 125 gram tin.
Extremely rare and coveted, Sumatra Kopi Musang, Kopi Luwak coffee is produced by civets, a relative of the mongoose, who have a taste for the sweet, red coffee cherries that contain the beans. The beans pass through the civet after fermenting in the stomach and that's what gives the coffee its unique taste and aroma. Collected from the jungle floor, then thoroughly washed and dried - this is the coffee that everyone's been talking about. With earthy Sumatra-like tones, the Sumatra Kopi Musang, Indonesia Kopi Luwak has a heavy, caramel body and low acidity, but also a nuance in the taste that is hard to put the finger on. Perhaps that is unsurprising given the unorthodox method of processing. This pure Kopi Luwak civet cat coffee (125 grams) is stored in an elegant, airtight tin - a perfect gift or treat.
