Origin Of Kopi Luwak
The origin of Kopi Luwak is closely connected with the history of coffee production in Indonesia. In the early 18th century the Dutch established cash-crop coffee plantations in their colony in the Dutch East Indies islands of Java and Sumatra, including Arabica coffee introduced from Yemen. During the era of Cultuurstelsel (1830—1870), the Dutch prohibited the native growers and plantation workers from picking coffee fruit for their own use. Still, the native farmers wanted to enjoy drinking the coffee they cultivated and harvested. Soon, the natives learned that certain species of Musang or Luwak (Civet) consumed the coffee fruits, yet they left the coffee "seeds" undigested in their droppings. The natives collected these luwaks' coffee seed droppings, then cleaned, roasted and ground them to make their own coffee beverage. Fame of the civet coffee spread from locals to Dutch plantation owners and soon became their favorite, yet because of its rarity and unusual process the civet coffee was expensive even in colonial times.
"We honor the beautiful people of Sumatra and share in the rich tradition of preparing a coffee that is legendary. Kopi Luwak presents an aroma that is highly pleasing. Our Kopi Luwak is described as rich, full bodied, and robust with fantastic complex overtones which linger on the palate with a long, smooth, clean finish. An extraordinary experience for the true coffee connoisseur." -BDS
