Luwak Coffee or Civet Coffee (Kopi Luwak) comes from the Indonesian Island of Java and Sumatra, an area well known for its excellent coffee. Also native to the area is a small civet -like animal called luwak. These little mammals live in the trees and one of their favorite foods is the red, ripe coffee cherry. They eat the cherries , bean and all. While the bean is in the luwak’s stomach, it undergoes chemical treatments and fermentation. The bean finishes its journey through the digestive system, and exits. The still-intact beans are collected, cleaned, then roasted and ground just like any other coffee. The resulting coffee has rich, heavy flavor with hints of caramel or chocolate. Other terms used to describe it are earthy, musty and exotic.
