What is Kopi Luwak Coffee in a 2 oz. Size?
Kopi Luwak Coffee has a very unusual origin unlike any other coffee bean and now we offer it in a small 2 ounce sample size. The Luwak denizen (a member of the cat family also known as the Asian Palm Civet) of the coffee plantations of Java, Sumatra, and Sulawesi, eats only the ripest coffee cherries. Unable to digest the coffee beans, the Luwak graciously deposits them on the jungle floor where they are eagerly collected by the locals. The stomach acids and enzymatic action involved in this unique fermentation process produces the beans for the world’s rarest coffee beverage.
“The secret of this delicious blend," enthuses the Indonesia Tourism Promotion Board, "lies in the bean selection, which is performed by a luwak, a species of civet cat endemic to Java. The luwak will eat only the choicest, most perfectly matured beans which it then excretes, partially digested, a few hours later. Plantation workers then retrieve the beans from the ground, ready for immediate roasting." The coffee has also become known to some people as civet coffee or weasel coffee and others just call it cat poop coffee.
You may have seen Kopi Luwak Coffee in the 2007 movie, The Bucket List, where it is actor Jack Nicholson's beverage of choice and he carries a supply with him wherever he goes.

And of course there are many documentaries shown on television- It is known as the most expensive coffee in the world and one that is well worth it. This smaller 2 ounce size is a more affordable way to try it.
