The most expensive and excellent coffee in the world is one of Indonesia’s treasures, Kopi Luwak. They are exotic coffee beans deep from Sumatran forest in Indonesia. They are exotic because they are not just regular cup of joe. The coffee berries are first ingested by wild civets or luwak in Bahasa. Amazingly, the wild civets eat only fully ripe coffee berries. Therefore, they become the natural selectors for the best coffee beans. Fortunately, the civets cannot digest the coffee beans at the core of the berries. So, while the beans are in the civets’ digestive system, they absorb civets’ digestive enzymes. This process enriches the flavor which cannot be artificially imitated with any other process, either roasted or grilled. After the beans find their way out of the digestive system, they are collected by our farmers. Then, they are dried naturally by sun-drying. At the end, the taste of Kopi Luwak (civet coffee) is one of a kind. It has rich and heavy flavors with hints of caramel or chocolate. It also has an elegant-smooth intense deep body with low acidity.
Kopi Luwak was first founded by Sumatra native people during Dutch occupation. At the time, the natives were not allowed by the Dutch government to reap coffee berries for private consumption. But they found out that civets were eating ripe coffee berries but cannot digest the beans. So, the natives then collected the beans that were excreted from the civets. Then, the beans were cleaned, roasted, pounded, and brewed. Unexpectedly, the coffee tasted better than regular coffee. Then, the Dutch knew about this coffee and it became the Dutch riches’ favorite coffee. In a year, only 500-1000 pound green civet coffee beans are available. After the roasting process, the volume is reduced up to 20%. Because of its scarcity and unusual process, it became the most expensive coffee in the world, even to this day.
