Ever had a sip or a cup? How was it?

Do you want to have a sip or a cup? Why?


Discuss anything related to Kopi Luwak.

Civet coffee is coffee made from coffee berries which have been eaten by and passed through the digestive tract of the Asian Palm Civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus). The civets eat the berries, but the beans inside pass through their system undigested. This process takes place on the islands of Sumatra, Java and Sulawesi in the Indonesian Archipelago, in the Philippines (where the product is called Kape Alamid) and in East Timor (locally called kafé-laku). Vietnam has a similar type of coffee, called weasel coffee, which is made from coffee berries which have been defecated by local weasels. In actuality the "weasel" is just the local version of the Asian Palm Civet.

Kopi Luwak is the most expensive coffee in the world, selling for between $120 and $600 USD per pound, and is sold mainly in Japan and the United States. It is increasingly becoming available elsewhere, though supplies are limited: only 1,000 pounds (450 kg) at most make it into the world market each year. One small cafe, the Heritage Tea Rooms, in the hills outside Townsville in Queensland, Australia has Kopi Luwak coffee on the menu at A$50.00 (=US$48.00) per cup, selling approximately four cups a week, which has gained nationwide Australian press. In April 2008, the brasserie of Peter Jones department store in London's Sloane Square starting selling a blend of Kopi Luwak and Blue Mountain called Caffe Raro for £50 (=US$99.00) a cup.

I have a feeling that this is a duplicate for some odd reason.

I've heard of this somewhere before.... I think on one of the animal planet shows. Apparently after the coffee bean passes through the civet it becomes more potentate. I guess it's like a really good espresso shot. I've never tried it before.... dunno if I would knowing it's the feces of an animal.

Forget the coffee. The Asian Palm Civet looks yummy itself. *drools* @_@


Anyway, I've also heard of this before. I would love to try it. Not a big fan of coffee, but I would totally try it just so I can say I did and experience the taste. .__.
