Usually we offer medium roasting, since we find this most effectively brings out the unique flavour of our special, high-quality coffee beans and creates what our experts consider to be the best results. However, we appreciate that our customers have different preferences, and we are able to provide light or dark roast beans to order. Simply choose your preferred roast you like and let us know when you place your order.
The unique taste of Kopi Luwak comes from it being processed by a small animal called the Asian Palm Civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus). The resultant taste is both smooth and delicious.
This unique and delicate taste is achieved by the break up of coffee beans by proteolytic enzymes in the digestive system of the civet cats.
We are sure you will agree that this results in a truly exquisite coffee that is smooth, delicious, and flavorful.
The name “Kopi Luwak” originates from Bali. The word “Kopi” means “coffee” in Balinese, while “Luwak” is the local name for the Palm civet. In addition to Indonesia, Kopi Luwak is produced in the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Unfortunately, most producers of this type of coffee keep the small animals, which we affectingly know as Toddy cats, locked up in cages. This is something that we will never tolerate. Indeed we are very proud to use only free-range civets to process our beans. They do so in the forests of Mt. Matutum on the island of Mindanao, where over 2,700 free-roaming civets lovingly produce our coffee.
To ensure we have the best tasting Kopi Luwak you can buy online, we have planted high-quality Coffea arabica plants in the area for the cats to devour. This has both increased our natural output capabilities and has ensured that we have the highest quality Kopi Luwak available on the market.
