WHAT IS KOPI LUWAK?

Kopi Luwak (‘Civet Coffee’) simply means coffee from a civet, a small wild cat-like animal called Asian palm civet or Luwak in Indonesian. This coffee is made from natural coffee berries which have been eaten by and passed through the digestive tract of civet. The civets eat the berries for their fleshy pulp, but the beans inside pass through their system undigested. Civets consume the red coffee berries containing the fruit and seed, and they tend to pick the ripest and sweetest fruit when the fruit is at its peak, which ensures that only the best beans have been ingested. Thus there is a natural selection for the ripest coffee beans. The inner bean of the berry (actually, it is the coffee bean) is not digested, but a unique combination of natural enzymes in the civet's stomach enhances the coffee's flavour by breaking down the proteins that give coffee its bitter taste. The beans are defecated and still covered in some inner layers of the berry. After collecting, thorough washing, sun drying, light roasting and brewing, these beans yield an aromatic, rich coffee flavour with less or no bitterness like no others. Only about 500 kg is found a year, this coffee is widely noted as the rarest, the most delicious and the most expensive coffee in the world.

WHY KOPI LUWAK IS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER COFFEES?

Kopi Luwak is different from ordinary coffees because it’s acquired in a very unique way. Firstly, it involves natural or animal process with no human interference. Civets select and eat the ripest berries of the coffee plants and eats the whole fruit. The beans collected from civets are then processed to become Kopi Luwak coffee. Secondly, internal fermentation by the Civet’s digestive enzymes. This process adds a unique flavour to the beans, the coffee taste which is both smooth and delicious.

WHAT MAKES KOPI LUWAK SO GOOD?

One aspect of the coffee’s reputation proposes that the coffee beans are of superior quality before they are even ingested. The civet eats only the ripest and sweetest of the coffee berries, and this quality comes through in the final taste of the coffee. However, the main reason for it tasting so good is the remarkable change to the beans which produce a uniquely smooth and delicious flavour. From a research in Kopi Luwak coffee, scientists found that, natural enzymes in the civet’s intestines make the beans less acidic and therefore less or no bitter. Furthermore, the enzymes also remove some caffeine; civet coffee beans have less protein, a lower bacterial count and some pitting on the surface.  This explains, why Kopi Luwak coffee is less bitter, has a greater attractive aroma and smooth taste.
