The rare and exotic Kopi Luwak (often translated as civet coffee) is renowned all around the world for its incredibly delicious, subtle, lingering flavor and exceptional smoothness. This Kopi Luwak is wild-gathered by freelance individuals in the Cavite and Batangas regions. The coffee is not from civet farms.
Kopi Luwak, or Civet Coffee, is "processed" by the Philippine Civet, who populates the coffee-growing areas and comes out nightly to feast on only the ripest of the coffee cherries. The beans do not digest and are collected daily by farmers, who thoroughly sanitize the beans, and then dry them in the sun. Then the beans are roasted and vacuum packed for shipping.
Genuine Kopi Luwak coffee beans release hidden flavor compounds from the beans that are never accessed by regular roasting and brewing. These wonderful, locked-away flavors are released because of the natural enzymes of the civet.
We are out of the Arabica. We have a limited supply of the rare Liberica beans at this time. We only sell Kopi Luwak in whole bean and we roast to order. 4 ounces, with informational flyer. 4 ounces, whole bean only.
We roast this product to order, and currently we are short on manpower so we need to take it down. Sorry! Hopefully we can return it soon.
Please note that we do not use the canvas bags shown in the picture. The packaging is different; we use a abaca straw bag and the label and coffee bag format are different. New picture coming soon.
Although the coffee is expensive per pound, a cup of home-brewed civet coffee actually costs less than an average cup of brewed coffee bought at a café like Starbucks. Our direct personal relationship with the producers allow us to offer one of the world's greatest culinary treasures at an exceptional value! We are the only website in the world, that we can verify, selling multiple bean species of Kopi Luwak from several different producers.
As with all our products, we stand behind our Kopi Luwak and absolutely guarantee its quality and authenticity. We have been dealing in Southeast Asian coffee for years and we take great pride in our spotless reputation. We do not sell any diluted kopi luwak, or regular coffee mixed with kopi luwak. All our Kopi Luwak is guaranteed 100% genuine and delicious civet coffee. We ship all civet coffee with suggested brewing instructions and information about the source.
Brewing Civet Coffee: Kopi Luwak can be prepared in any regular coffee machine, or in a Vietnamese-style Phin filter, which brews a single cup of intense coffee at a time (more about Phins here). We include a FREE Phin filter and brewing guide with the 4 oz. Bantai Kopi Luwak, as well as general tips on brewing. In essence, civet coffee can be brewed in an ordinary drip machine, but you will probably enjoy it more in a French Press or with a Phin filter, so we also make it available with these accessories, shown below.
On average, orders ship the following business day. All civet coffee items products ship by USPS Priority Mail unless you request otherwise.
