Richest Cup Of Coffee – Civet

There is no doubt about the fact that a nicely prepared cup of hot and rich-smelling coffee can be luring…And something that adds on to the lure is undoubtedly the quality of the coffee beans…You know like the more pure and rich they are…the more tempting the beverage becomes…

One type of coffee that adheres…in fact…supersedes the above mentioned qualities of a good coffee is certainly…Civet coffee…

The magical flavour and aroma of the lip-smacking Civet Coffee or Kopi Luwak…as it is known popularly…reveals the romantic story of its provenance…You know how it works? It’s that this Asian Palm Civet eats the beans of the coffee berries…The beans then pass through the digestive tract of the civet and there proteolytic enzymes seep in to the beans….As a result…more amino acid and shorter peptides are formed…The beans pass through the intestines of the civet and are later defecated….These beans are then –

  • Gathered
  • Thoroughly washed
  • Sundried
  • Roasted
  • Brewed

All this…to give you that extremely delectable coffee…

The less bitter taste and alluring aroma of Civet Coffee make it one of the most sought after and most expensive coffees in the world…Chiefly produced on the rich islands of

  • Java
  • Sumatra
  • Sulawesi
  • Bali in the archipelago of Indonesia
  • Philippines

Actually it is mainly because….of the increasing popularity of civet coffee and the high income it brings…civet farming has become a custom for the local community who earlier hunted them…Civets are fed raw berries lavishly and the coffee beans are gathered from the faeces produced….Civets eat the coffee cherries for their fruit pulp and pass the coffee beans inside…Enzymes in their stomach when work on these beans add the soothing aroma and flavour to them….
