As the name suggests, Kopi Luwak is a special kind of coffee as it is coffee beans which have been eaten and digested by an animal called Luwak, also known as Civet. Born from Sumatra and Java, this species of civet traditionally live on chicken for protein and also feed on fruits like banana, papaya and coffee bean.
During coffee season, the selective civet seeks out soft, sweet smelling coffee beans and tends to choose the best of only 30% of a 100kg amount of coffee fed to them. Very interestingly, it only chews on some of the outer sweet layers of the bean, while the rest of the bean stays intact in its stomach for a 12 hour fermentation period in a perfect 26 degree Celsius, where the beans are well blended with enzymes created by other foods consumed. The beans are then expelled during excretion on dry and clean surface, a preferred choice of the civet.
The coffee beans then go through the regular process of washing, sun drying, selection, roasting and testing and the final Kopi Luwak produced has a light but distinctive aroma and has a refined taste on the palate, sometimes referred to as the ‘Champagne of coffees’.
