ABOUT THIS COFFEE

Kopi Luwak is one of the most expensive coffees in the world. Production of this coffee requires several hours of research and manual harvesting which explains its high cost.‘’ Kopi ’’ means coffee in Indonesian and ‘’ Luwak ’’ means civet.

It is cultivated in the Indonesian archipelago where the wild civets that live in freedom eat the fruits of the coffee tree because of their fleshy pulp. Their digestive secretions loaded with enzymes enter the beans and change their composition. Coffee growers carefully harvest all the beans that have been rejected by natural means.

They claim that this natural process alters the beans in a way that enhances their aroma and taste, producing a very aromatic coffee without bitterness.

All over the world, Kopi Luwak is recognized as the most expensive coffee. In 1995, it even won the Ig Nobel Prize to John Martinez & Co in Atlanta.

NATURAL PROCESS WITH PULP (dry process)

This process is predominant in countries where access to water may be limited. Cherries are picked, cleaned and sun dried for up to four weeks’ time, with continuous raking to promote even drying. The fruit surrounding the bean ferments which gives it an intense taste. During this time, coffee growers monitor the moisture content of the cherries (11% is normally ideal). Once the desired humidity level reached, the peeling process begins with the goal of removing the parchment layer (or endocarp) from the dried cherries. The resulting beans are then graded, sorted and packaged.

INDONESIAN COFFEE CULTURE

Coffee production is important in Indonesia and is said to have been introduced by Dutch settlers. Arabica is believed to have arrived first in Java in the 17th century and Robusta in the 20th century. It is also the very first non-African country to grow coffee on a massive scale.

It was in the 19th century that farmers in Central Java began brewing and drinking coffee from the excreted beans of wild civets, collected from their plantations.

Processing
Pulped Natural (dry-processed) coffee is predominant in countries where water may be scarce. The cherries are picked, cleaned and laid out on patios to dry for up to four weeks’ time and raked continuously to promote even drying. As the berries dry, the farmer keeps an eye on moisture content (usually 11% is ideal) and once the desired level of moisture is reached, the hulling process can begin. Hulling removes the parchment layer (or endocarp) of the dried cherries. The resulting beans are then graded, sorted and bagged.
