Do you ever try Kopi Luwak coffee?
Last year we were in Bali. We knew that Bali is The home of Luwak coffee, the most expensive coffee in the world. For our first breakfast in Kuta we found a small coffee shop near our hotel and we tried this special drink.
I don’t know…maybe we prefer Italian Coffee made in a classic moka ?
After coffee tasting and a balinese breakfast with chicken fried, rice and potatoes we decided to booking a visit to a coffee farm.
This is a particular coffee. The main factor of it’s high price is the uncommon method of producing such a coffee. It has been produced from the coffee beans which have been digested by a certain Indonesian cat-like animal called then palm civet or also civet cat.
This is the reason this coffee is also called cat poop coffee ? or civet cat coffee. The feces of this cat will be collected, finished and sold as kopi luwak. The short supply, in comparison with the high demand, the different taste and the uncommon production methods define the value of kopi luwak.
This coffee is produced mainly on the islands of Sumatra, Java, Bali and Sulawesi in the Indonesian Archipelago. It is also widely gathered in the forest or produced in the farms in the islands of the Philippines.
